I guess I don't get out too much
If that wasn't enough I hear all these voices
Always tellin' me that I'm bad
But it's all in my head, like all those scary noises

I've been waitin' all of my life
All of my life
I've been waitin' all of my life
All of my life

Some nights when I'm layin' in bed
I wish I was dead, and I know you'd never miss me
But I know where you go when you dream
As strange as that seems 'cause I never even kissed ya

Everybody wants to be somebody's somethin'
Ain't nobody wants to be blue?
Ain't nobody anywhere ever loved nothin'
Half as much as I love you?

Somebody somewhere said, "Love is a prison"
But no one really wants to be free
I have to be crazy to ever think someone
Could love a nobody like me

I'm here all alone in the dark
But I know where you are
'Cause I can hear you breathin'

Come a little closer, you'll find
You were meant to be mine
And you're the only reason

I've been waitin' all of my life
All of my life
I've been waitin' all of my life
All of my life
