To Love Somebody
There's a light, certain kinda light
Never ever, never shone on me, no, no
Honey, I want, I want my whole life
To be lived with you, babe
That's what I want oh, was to be
Living and loving you

There's a way, oh everybody say
You can do anything, every thing yeah
But what good, what good
Honey, what good could it ever bring
'Cause I ain't got you with my love
And I can't find you babe, no I can't

You don't know, you don't know what it's like
No you don't, honey no you don't know
You don't know what it's like
To love anybody
Oh honey, I wanna talk about love
And trying to hold somebody
The way I love you babe
And I've been loving you babe

In my brain, oh I can see your face again
I know my frame of mind, yeah
But nobody, nobody has to ever be so blind
Honey, like I did, I know I was blind
Honey, I tell you that I was, I was very, very blind
Oh but I'm just a girl
Can't you just take a look at me and tell
Tell that I live, honey I live and I breathe for you
Don't you know I do!

But what good, what good
Honey, what good could ever do
'Cause I ain't got you, that's all I've ever wanted
And I ain't got you, babe, oh but I've been looking 'round
But you don't know, you don't know what it's like
No you don't, no, no, no, you don't know
Honey, you don't know what it's like
Oh to love anybody
Oh honey I wanna talk about
Trying to hold somebody when you're lonely
The way I loved you, baby
And I just want you to know I tried

Oh I know that there's a way
'Cause everybody came to me one time and said
"Honey, you can do anything
Every little thing," and I think I can
Oh, but what good, what good
Honey, what awfully good can it ever, ever bring
'Cause I can't find you with my love
And I can't find you babe, oh anywhere

Oh, but you don't know
You don't know what it's like
No you don't and you never ever, ever did
You don't know, honey
You don't know what it's like
Oh, to love anybody
Oh, honey I wanna talk about trying to hold you

Oh baby, baby, baby, yeah
But you don't know
You don't know what it's like
And you never ever, ever did
I said I tried to throw my love around you
And I tried to help you darling
But you never ever, no you never ever
No you never ever, no you never ever
I know that you know that
No you never ever, ever, ever
Oh let me throw my love
Throw my love all around you, yeah
