​Someone Like Yourself

This song is by King Nancy and appears on the album To Quitta (2007).

I know, I've been waiting for someone
To save me from thoughts, that go bump in my head
But lately, I'm finding a general lull
In the number of saviors, whose hearts aren't dead

Now, there's a lot of compassion expressed in conversation
But style, seems to warrant the trade
I know, it's not fashion that causes this reaction
But somebody's got to take the blame

Oh, oh, oh, someone like yourself

Oh, I'm sure, I will grow to be a good man
But for now, I am still, just a boy
And I still believe, in the soul of purest rock and roll
But I can't find that romance, they're still singing about

Oh, oh, maybe, it's inside someone like yourself

Oh, I thought for a moment, due to someone's interventions
That you might like to sit down
Oh, and play the good role of the beautiful lady
Who makes everyday worth my while

But as it turns out
(I was just another passer-by)
(Whose soul you thought looked nice to squeeze)
Oh, and now, here I am, waiting around for someone
To pick me back up off the ground

Here I am, waiting around for someone to save me
Someone like yourself
Here I am, waiting around for someone to save me
Someone like yourself
