"Living On The Radio" is a song written by Lady Gaga in 2010. She first debuted an acoustic version of the song on August 30th, at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was mentioned that she didn't know whether or not the song would make it onto her third album, Born This Way. After she finished performing the song, she said it was "straight from my soul to you". According to fans, Gaga performed the song before her rehearsal for Lollapalooza in 2010.

On May 27, 2011, Gaga tweeted to a fan that she'll eventually release "Living On the Radio"; the only reason it wasn't included on Born This Way was because she wanted to "keep the pace of the album hard".

I've got no friends,
I'm my own queen,
But I'm living on, living on the radio, that's my dream.
Stone river eyes, and a lonely heart,
If I'm living on the radio, they won't tear me apart.

Ten stems and roses on a tree.
Ten steps, and lonely nights, but you still got me.
On the road, road paved in gold.

Baby you must believe,
Baby you must be free,
Keep living on, living on the radio, that's your dream.
Baby you've got a friend,
And so many little monsters, yeah.
Keep living on, living on the radio.
And when there's nowhere to go,
And all your friends are gone,
And you've only got your daddy to call,
You can be all right honey,
'Cause your songs are on the radio.

'Cause you're sure to miss all the caviar,
The champagne, and the sold-out shows,
But we'll be all right honey,
'Cause your songs are on the radio.
