Learn to Be Loved – copyright © Chris MacLean 2000 (SOCAN)

Forty days in the desert
And forty long, long lonely nights
With nothing to cover you
But the dome of the desert sky
Just rolling along, like a tumbleweed
No particular direction, just a need
To keep moving, keep moving on

Hey lonely, you can come on in, or keep on running
Or learn to be loved

I can see it in your eyes,
I can see it in your broken smile
What’s this driving you on
Mile after mile after mile
Don’t you get a little tired sometimes
Don’t you wish that you could settle down and find
A little peace, and a place to call your home


As a child you were born perfect
And then someone came along
And told you different
And you ran away to hide
Don’t you think it’s time now?
Come on inside
Well I know you so well
You’re a lot like me

You can come on in, or you can keep on running
Or you can learn, you can learn, learn to be loved
