Depeche Mode – Somebody lyrics
I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She'll get my support
She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general
Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She'll hear me out
And won't easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she'll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought
With every breath
Someone who'll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don't want to be tied
To anyone's strings
I'm carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I'm asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it
And in a place like this
I'll get away with it

    I really sung this song in our house every now and then. Memorize ko na nga ang whole lyrics. Everytime I hear this song I feel comfort and release. The song is interesting and very meaningful talagang nakakainlove. In fact the first time I sing this song in the videoke house when I was invited by one of my boy friend dito ko ma meet ang boyfriend ko. Wala sa kanyang physical appearance ang ideal man ko at first but then nung sumabay siya sa pagkanta sakin I was really surprise that he knew the song, bigla akong napatigil sa pagkanta at hinayaan siyang tapusin ito, tinititigan ko lang siya habang tinatapos ang kanta. Sa sandaling iglap bigla akong nakarandam ng ibang feeling na para bang I get attracted with him. Hanggang sa dumating yun time na nagkamabutihan kami at nagkasundo kaya naman nung naging kami na eveytime pumunta kami ng videoke house hindi mawala sa list namin itong "somebody" song. Now I'm happy to say I'm engaged with him were getting married next year.

    ‘No strings attached’ means unconditional love. It doesn’t necessarily mean no commitment. It means you are not bound by a commitment. It’s the difference between your partner saying ‘you must do this to be with me’ vs taking it day by day, doing your best because you love that person, and allowing things to unfold naturally. Reality is that you can never truly secure love for the future. You’ve got to work on it every day. Marriage is a false security. You will never know if you’ll be together forever until forever comes.

    He wants to have someone who cares about him and will be there for him. He wishes to find a true friend who will not hold him back and believe in him not judging his actions. He realizes that in life, relationships like this will likely never succed. There are always strings attached or better defined there are compromises to ones beliefs in order to. He knows being a star allows him to have a differant women ever night if he choses. There infatuation to him allows him to say, do, or be anything he wants and they will always agree. Hence, he is sick he will never find what he truly wants, but is able to get a plasibo.

    Miss dakikyo. The qoute "i dont want to be tied to anyone strings" does not mean he don't want to tied but actually youll understand the full meaning of it when you connect it with the next stanza. He don't want to be tied to anybody when he ever find the somebody. That's what the writer want to say. For me the meaning of this song is that most men would like a woman who knows her place in a relationship, a woman who don't overdo things it is that simple.

    I just heard now this on the radio, downloaded at once 4 my winamp. Aaaahhh. Really aaahhh. Everynight you will whisper or shout this word, why. You need somebody to share ur life with and damn it somebody passionately beside you in bed. But how can he get one if he does not want to be tied to anyone strings. It would be like heaven if he found some1 whom he describes in his song permanently tied in his lifetime. Wow!
    Hey fore_st, why wait 8, you just did not look hard enough, he or she might be just beside you all the time. Maybe you have so unrealistic longings for what you want as a lifetime partner. Nobody's pefect you know! Love truly means not the kind of love which you love because of, but the kind of love which is "Love despite of" Got it, take this advice and good luck. Let me know you made it and I was right.

    I just heard it from my ultimate crush last acquaintance party. He sung it on videoke. Actually I took him video, and I can't help to watch it again and again. Everytime I watch it my feelings for him grows deeper. But I know that this longing for him has limitation because he is already married five years ago. Thus, I will make him as one of my inspiration to fulfill my study and to achieve my dreams. I know that only my heart can say this words and I hope that I can shout it all over the world. Should I say "I crush you" or should I say "I love you."
