John Kay – Somebody lyrics

Words and music by John Kay

Come and tell me, who stole your smile?
I wanna help you girl, to laugh a while
'Cause everybody feels the power sometimes
To heal with kind affection
Everybody's heart is troubled at times
In need of some protection

If I could only touch you
I know you'd like it
But every time I try to reach you
You run away frightened

Somebody wants you
Somebody needs you
Somebody loves you
Just the way you are

Nobody knows just how long
Nobody knows just how strong
I've cared for you through all these years
You know I love you darlin'
But you don't wanna hear

'Cause everything I try to tell you
Goes in one ear and out the other
I can't quite put my finger on it
It seems you just don't bother
