Nickelback – Gotta Be Somebody lyrics
[Verse 1]
This time, I wonder what it feels like
To find the one in this life
The one we all dream of
But dreams just aren't enough
So I'll be waiting for the real thing
I'll know it by the feeling
The moment when we're meeting
Will play out like a scene
Straight off the silver screen
So I'll be holding my breath
Right up 'til the end
Until that moment when
I find the one that I'll spend forever with

[Chorus]
'Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me like that
'Cause nobody wants to do it on their own (Their own)
And everyone wants to know they're not alone (Not alone)
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere (The same somewhere)
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

[Verse 2]
Tonight, out on the street, out in the moonlight
And dammit, this feels too right
It's just like déja vu, me standing here with you
So I'll be holding my breath
Could this be the end?
Is it that moment when
I find the one that I'll spend forever with?

[Chorus]
'Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me like that
'Cause nobody wants to do it on their own (Their own)
And everyone wants to know they're not alone (Not alone)
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere (The same somewhere)
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

[Bridge]
Ooh, you can't give up (When you're looking for)
A diamond in the rough ('Cause you never know)
When it shows up (Make sure you're holding on)
'Cause it could be the one
The one you're waiting on

[Breakdown]
'Cause nobody wants to be the last one there
And everyone wants to feel like someone cares
Someone to love with my life in their hands
There's gotta be somebody for me, oh

[Chorus]
Nobody wants to do it on their own (Their own)
And everyone wants to know they're not alone (Not alone)
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere (The same somewhere)
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

[Outro]
Nobody wants to be the last one there (When you're looking for)
'Cause everyone wants to feel like someone cares ('Cause you never know)
There's somebody else that feels the same somewhere (Make sure you're holding on)
There's gotta be somebody for me out there

    Lpluv I disagree with you majorily. Yea you have your opinions everyone does but if you hate Nickelback so much then why are you on the lyrics to their songs? It makes no sense unless you want to just put negative comments on a very meaniful song. Cause that's what this is. This song has meaning to it, saying that theres somone out there for everyone. If you don't like them then stay off the lyrics for their songs because all your doing is putting negative information on Nickelback and their fans. And just by you saying negative things isn't like your killing anyones love for Nickelback. Just my opinion.

    This song is about finding your soul mate, the person your going to spend the rest of you life with. I know at times we believe that there is no one out there for us. Either because we are too different and we have a few issues. I found the love of my life and I honestly thought there would be no one for me. Don't give up on love because if you do you might just miss the one your looking for.

    This song means that there is somebody waiting for you. You just have to find them. I have found my diamond in the rough, everyone will know when they find that person. 2 years later they can still give you butterflies and when they call you beautiful you know its the truth.
    I love Nickelback and this by far was their coming back song. I'm seeing them 3/14/09 in Milwaukee, wi 3rd row.

    This song is practically my theme song!
    All my friends talk about how amazing thier bf's are and I'm stuck here wondering if i'll have that. Wondering if every person I meet is *him*. It's talking about how everyone wants to feel special. And how everyone should have someone special to spend their lives with, and wants that perfect special someone. And there's always someone out there for you. It's just finding them that's the hard part:/

    This is a really good song but its not much of an advanced version of far away. In far away he already has someone to love but they're not with him. In this song he's saying how he's lonely and that there has to be the perfect someone for him out there and when he finds her he knows she's the one because he feels so perfect and complete like he's known her forever.

    Look I know we all have the rihgt to say what's on our minds but if you don't like this band then why the hell are you on their lyrics, why don't you go on the bands that you like instead of hating on them. If you don't like the name "Dark Horse" too bad at least they have talent and at least they can share their music with the world. Oh and guess what? You are not breaking my heart 'cause I have a life so yeah thanks.

    Everyone has a talent to offer to the world. You might not see it right know but when you figure out what you have to offer youll be graceous. Just now you are somebody don't belive lies that come out. I might only be a youngster but I surtently know I'm someone and I have something to show to the world and so do you. This song has a true meaning and you have one to, so go and show off yourself and be proud.

    Yeah I love how you rejected my correction of your dodge lyrics and then changed them yourself melvinkyb you tool.
    "And everyone wants to know the night alone" wtf would that have to do with anything the songs about? The song is about being with someone. How do you mistake 'they're not alone' with 'the night alone? ' its not like chad's speaking in french. Like whatever s*t you had for the part where he sings 'diamond in the rough. ' I had no idea wtf you were on about there.
    Anyway.
    The song is about wandering what it would be like to find that one person who youre meant to be with for the rest of your life and saying that as soon as you meet that person you'll know its them. Its about how ever person need that someone so know theyre not alone.
