Somebody broke your heart once before, yeah
Now you claim you don't want love no more
Listen, girl; hear what I say
How long do you think you can go on this way?

CHORUS:
You know you can't stand alone no matter how you try
Got to have somebody to love, goes for you & I
(Everybody needs somebody) (x3)
All of a sudden you can't stand alone

Love brought you heartaches sometime, so wrong, yeah
Don't let it turn your heart into stone
I love you, baby; this you can recognize, yeah
I see a spark of love deep in your eyes

(Chorus)

(Instrumental)

Love brought you misery; that may be true
But that is something that we all go through
Oh come put your hand in mine & don't look back
Let's fall in love, baby; that's where it's at

You know you can't stand alone no matter how you try
Got to have somebody to love, goes for you & I
(Repeat & fade):
(Everybody needs somebody)
