"Somebody" Lyrics

(heartbeat and background sounds)

I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details

Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She'll get my support

She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in gen'ral

And though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She'll hear me out
And won't easily be converted

To my way of thinking
In fact she'll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me, aahhh...

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thoughts
And with every breath

Someone who'll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like

I dont want to be tied
To anyone's string
I'm carefully trying to steer clear
Of those things

But when I'm asleep
I want someody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly

Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it, aahhh...
