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 had died
The one where you screamed
And you cried

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, 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 them see you cry
Cover the hole inside

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

To be loved, oh

Welcome to the planet Earth
Welcome to the heroes call
This is a thing called birth
Come on remember, you knew it all

But there's no love
From someone else
If I can't love myself
And I'm still waiting to be loved

Oh, 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, ooh, ooh, ooh

I'm still waiting
If I can't love myself
If I can't love myself
I'm still waiting, waiting
I'm still waiting to be loved
