Heaven 17 – Somebody lyrics

You've got to face the fact
That in the world today

They try and take away the blue skies
And all the children that play
But it's a curious fact
In every hour in every place
That when the right time arrives
It feels so good to be alive

Somebody

Can't you see
I'm a boy out of fashion

Somebody

I'm not part of any nation
Now I'm back in circulation

When the right time arrives will you be there
Tomorrow or a hundred years from now
I've wasted years just keepin' movin' on
It never entered my head it was here all along
Don't ask me why just lead me on

Somebody

Talk to me
I can hear what you're saying

Somebody

Tired of the city air
If I gave you the future would you meet me there

I used to stumble and fall
I'd run to everyone that called
Since you appeared it's been a lot of fun
Between you and me, between the truth and a lie

You have a husband and I have a wife
And when you ask me why with your kissing eyes
How could we be so wrong, oh my oh my oh my
You'll always be there the same as any other

You like a sister and me like a brother
Like all the times I used to dream

Somebody

Smile at me
Let me know that you're near me

Somebody
I can see that you're near me
It's the only sound on the city street
If I sing you my song will you move your feet

Somebody
Every moment you're nearer
I'm broken down and in a mess
Your love is all that I confess

Somebody
Now I know that you're near me

I don't mean to shock, I don't mean to scare

But the world won't change and I don't care

I used to dream
One day somebody near me
I can't believe you're making me

A rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief
There's a strange new rhythm in my life
It burns like the sun and cuts like a knife

Everybody chic or shoddy
Turn it loose and use your body
