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.

    This song reminds me of the time my hubby was deployed and we where just starting to talk and become close. He always told me I was different and he could use someone like me. And the second part is he always was going to bed when I was heading out and he was scared I would find someone else, he hoped I needed him like he needed me. Few months later he come home we where married and then this song came out. For not having many words its our story. Love you baby.

    A friend of mine nd me have gotten into a few fights since september.
    She said things nd I said things. A few weks ago she thought id said some pretty mean things. We fought for 3 day but I explained I never said anything. Because of other fights over the same thing wewerent very good friends, she told me she thought we were becoming really good friends nd that id lost my hance. I said I didn't need her. The I heard this song nd realised if I didn't have her as a friend I'd be nothing. She helps me with everything nd knows all my secrets. I tell her everything nd she's helped me with alot of things nd I know, that if I could use somebody I could use somebody like hehr. So danniii if you're reading this I wan to say I'm so. Rry nd I want to make things right. I didn't mean anything I said please forgive xox :)

    I look at it from a spiritual perspective as if god was saying, I could use somebody like you to reach those I love. Look at all the painted faces people doing as they wish living as they want and god sees someone like me and you and says I can use somebody. Just a different twist. That's what so special about this song, it's whatever it means to you!

    Ah this song is amazing I recently lost a girl and this jus really hlped I agree with the whole I have good friends thing but sometimes you jus need a little more than a friend someone you can hold and kiss and go to sleep with everynight someone to tell you they love you back when you say you love them the feeling of all that is great trust me.
