American Idol – To Love Somebody lyrics

There's a light--
A certain kind of light
That never shines on me
I want my life to be
Here with you
To live with you

There's a way
I know everybody said
Just to do every thing that I can
But what good will it do,
If I can't have you?
If I can't have you?

Baby, you don't know what it's like
You just don't know what it's like
To love somebody...
To love somebody...
The way I love you


I'm just a man, can't you see that's what I am?
And I breathe ever breath that I take from you
But what good would breathing do, if I can't have you?
If I can't have you?
