To Be Loved (Album Version)

To Be Loved (Album Version)

Melissa Etheridge

Welcome to the planet earth
Welcome to the heroes fall
This is a thing called birth
The forgetting you knew it all
This is called your first step
This is called your first time
This is called your first break

The one that locks your mind
The one where you thought that you died
The one where you screamed and you cried
I'm still waiting to be loved
I'm still hoping there's enough
A constant wanting to be loved
To be loved
To be loved
To be loved

Welcome to the race of rats
Welcome to eternal blame
The trick is to stay asleep
The key is to play the game
But don't let 'em see you cry
Cover the hole inside

Cause I'm still waiting to be loved
I'm still hoping there's enough
The constant wanting to be loved
To be loved
To be loved

Welcome to the planet earth
Welcome to the heroes call
This is a thing called birth
C'mon remember you knew it all
There's no love from someone else
If I can't love myself
And I'm still waiting
To be loved

I'm still waiting
I'm still waiting

Oh
To be loved
To be loved
I'm still waiting
To be loved
To be loved
To be loved

I'm still waiting
If I can't love myself
If I can't love myself
I'm still waiting
Waiting
Still waiting
To be loved
