Story Behind the Song

Like many songs on this record, "Somebody" was inspired by a break up. Don and I were on our way to get ice cream, when I jokingly began to sing, "I just want somebody to loooove me." It had just jumped into my head fully formed. By the end of ice cream, we had the full chorus finished! This was one of the songs that came easily and is among my favourites.

Lyrics

SOME BODY TO LOVE ME
Don McLeod, Ali Milner

(INTRO) C-Am-F-G

C-Am-F-G X2
HOW ARE YOU, IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME
I HEARD YOU'RE MOVING, OUT OF TOWN
I'M OK, I'M GLAD YOU'RE HAPPY
WERE YOU GOING TO LEAVE HERE, WITH OUT A SOUND

(PRE) C-Gm^C7-F-G
IT'S SO GOOD TO HEAR YOUR VOICE, I'VE BEEN SO BUSY
WHEN DID THE SILENCE GET SO LOUD

(CHORUS) 'C' -Am-F-C-C-Am-F-G
I JUST WANT SOME BODY TO LOVE ME
SOME BODY TO HUG ME
SOME BODY TO CARE
I JUST WANT SOME BODY TO NEED ME
SOME BODY TO PLEASE ME
BUT LIFE'S NOT FAIR

(INTRO) C-Am-F-G

DO YOU REMEMBER THAT OLD CAFÉ,
WE USED TO MEET THERE AFTER DARK
WE'D GRAB OUR TABLE, SIT THERE LAUGHING
AS THE HANDS FLEW AROUND THE CLOCK

(PRE) C-Gm^C7-F-G
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW
YOU REALLY GOTTA GO
THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME

(CHORUS) 'C' -Am-F-C-C-Am-F-G
I JUST WANT SOME BODY TO LOVE ME
SOME BODY TO HUG ME
SOME BODY TO CARE
I JUST WANT SOME BODY TO NEED ME
SOME BODY TO PLEASE ME
BUT LIFE'S NOT FAIR
(INTRO) C-Am-F-G X2

(BRIDGE) C-Bb-F-G
THERE MUST BE SOMETHNIG I CAN SAY
THERE MUST BE SOMETHING I CAN DO
TO GET YOU TO STAY, MAKE ME ANY SHADE BUT BLUE

½ broken down - build last ½ (CHORUS) 'C' -Am-F-C-C-Am-F-G
