It’s that longing to be loved
What you cannot rise above
You gotta understand or get lost
By the longing to be loved

When you come home late at night
And you miss your student life
When the parties are just for the young
And you wonder where the time has gone

When you don’t know where to go
On Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve
When you’re the only one left alone
When that’s what you believe

When you ain’t the one
You always wanted to be
When your daily routines
Keep you away from your dreams

When you make the others taller
You stay small
Be with you, be now and here
This is your call

It’s that longing to be loved
What you cannot rise above
You gotta understand or get lost
By the longing to be loved

When all the years you have left behind
Are more than all those yet to come
Too many plans on your mind
Vanish away and remain undone

Too many people slipping away
Greying the colors of your day
Making you sink like a stone
Deeper and deeper into the ground

When you ain’t the one
You always wanted to be
When your daily ruins
Keep you away from your dreams

When you make the others taller
You stay small
Be with you, be now and here
This is your call

It’s that longing to be loved
What you cannot rise above
You gotta understand or get lost
By the longing to be loved
