I've been roaming around always lookin down at all I see.
Painted faces fill the places I can't reach.
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you
And all you know and how you speak
Countless lovers undercover of the street
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you
Off in the night while you live it up I'm off to sleep
Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
I hope it's gonna make you notice
I hope it's gonna make you notice
Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me
Somebody
(Oh, let it out)
Someone like you
Somebody
Someone like you
Somebody
Someone like you
Somebody
I've been roaming around always lookin down at all I see

    To mister BloomingDuke: I am single and VERY happy! That's NOT to say I have no one in my life I have some great friends I am very fortunate to have one of those "drop everything" people in my life if & when I ever really need help but that being said... I DO enjoy being single, living alone & don't see that changing anytime soon because I am very happy with my life! You may not understand us but don't make the assumption that we are not happy because we are not "attached" some of us feel that it feels good not to be... to be a little more independant I guess... I am VERY happy, am single & live alone by choice.

    It a very true song. Anyone who wants to happy in life needs someone. It's the people who are in dire strait's of other that are the smartest. That's how to live. I don't seem to understand people who don't want to get attached. It feels good to be attached to someone. To need them and to make each other better
