There's a light, a certain kind of light
It never shines on me
I want my whole life to be
Lived with you, babe, lived with you

There's a way
Many people say, to do everything
But what good does it bring
I ain't got you, if I don't have you?

Oh, you don't, you don't know
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
When you love somebody
To love somebody the way I love you

In my dreams I can see your face again
I know, I know my frame of mind
You don't have to be, you don't have to be so blind
And I'm so blind, I'm so blind

I'm a woman, can't you see, can't you see
Can't you see what I am?
I live, I live and breathe just for you, yeah, yeah
But what good does it do if I don't have you?

You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's like
To love somebody

You don't know what it's like
Love somebody, love somebody, love somebody
You, you don't know what it's like
To love somebody, love somebody
Yeah, love, yeah, love somebody

You don't know what it's like
You don't know what it's
You don't know what it's like
To love somebody, to love somebody

To love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love
You don't know, you, you don't know
What it's like to love somebody
