(Suzy Bogguss/Doug Crider/Matraca Berg)

You're mascara's runnin' and your hair is a mess
And what have you spilled on your party dress
Sittin' in the kitchen all broken-hearted
Lookin' for comfort in an ice-cream carton
But all you want, all you really want...

Is somebody to love, you want somebody
Oh you've got to be strong
It's not enough to want somebody
Just 'cause the night is long
You've got to be tough and hold out honey 'cause
What you really want is somebody to love

I've been to all of the places you go to
And I've danced the tango with Cassanova
The wine and the roses are so continental
But the champagne is flat and the tux is a rental
All you want, all you really want....

Is somebody to love, you want somebody
Oh you've got to be strong
It's not enough to want somebody
Just 'cause the night is long
You've got to be tough and hold out honey 'cause
What you really want is somebody to love

Yeah you want somebody
To tear the night apart
Someone to love you back now honey
That's a darn good start
You've got to be tough and hold out honey 'cause
What you really want is somebody to love
