Someone to hold you too close,Someone to hurt you too deep,Someone to sit in your chair,To ruin your sleep.
Someone to need you too much,Someone to know you too well,Someone to pull you up shortTo put you through hell.
Someone you have to let in,Someone whose feelings you spare,Someone who, like it or not,Will want you to shareA little, a lot.
Someone to crowd you with love,Someone to force you to care,Someone to make you come through,Who'll always be there,As frightened as you of being alive,Being alive,Being alive,Being alive.
Somebody, hold me too close,Somebody, hurt me too deep,Somebody, sit in my chairAnd ruin my sleepAnd make me awareOf being alive,Being alive.
Somebody, need me too much,Somebody, know me too well,Somebody, pull me up shortAnd put me through hellAnd give me supportFor being alive,Make me alive,Make me alive,
Make me confused,Mock me with praise,Let me be used,Vary my days.But alone is alone, not alive.
Somebody, crowd me with love,Somebody, force me to care,Somebody, let me come through,I'll always be there,As frightened as you,To help us surviveBeing alive,Being alive,Being alive!
