The Partridge Family – Doesn't Somebody Want To Be Wanted lyrics


I go downtown and roam around but every street I walk I find another
Dead end
I'm on my own but I'm so all alone, I need somebody so I won't have to
I know that someone's just waiting somewhere
I look around for her but she's just not there, oh!

Doesn't somebody want to be wanted like me?
Where are you?
Doesn't somebody want to wanted like me - just like me

I'm runnin' free but I don't want to be, I couldn't take another day
Like yesterday
I'm dead on my feet from walkin' the street, I need somebody to help me find my way
I've gotta get out of this town, before I do I'll take a last look
Around, though



"You know, I'm no different than anybody else.
I start each day and end each night.
It gets really lonely when you're by yourself.
And where is love?
And who is love?
I gotta know. "


Repeat and fade
