"To Love Somebody"

Thereís 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,
Thatís what I want oh, was to be
Living and loving you.

Thereís a way, oh everybody say
You can do anything, every thing yeah.
But what good, what good,
Honey, what good could it ever bring
ĎCause I ainít got you with my love
And I canít find you babe, no I canít.

You donít know, you donít know what itís like,
No you donít, honey no you donít know,
You donít know what itís like
To love anybody.
Oh honey, I wanna talk about love
And trying to hold somebody
The way I love you babe,
And Iíve 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 Iím just a girl,
Canít you just take a look at me and tell,
Tell that I live, honey I live and I breathe for you,
Donít you know I do!

But what good, what good,
Honey, what good could ever do
ĎCause I ainít got you, thatís all Iíve ever wanted,
And I ainít got you, babe, oh but Iíve been looking íround.
But you donít know, you donít know what itís like,
No you donít, no, no, no, you donít know,
Honey, you donít know what itís like
Oh to love anybody.
Oh honey I wanna talk about
Trying to hold somebody when youíre lonely
The way I loved you, baby,
And I just want you to know I tried.

Oh I know that thereís a way
ĎCause everybody came to me one time and said,
ďHoney, 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,
ĎCause I canít find you with my love,
And I canít find you babe, oh anywhere.

Oh, but you donít know,
You donít know what itís like,
No you donít and you never ever, ever did.
You donít know, honey,
You donít know what itís like
Oh to love anybody.
Oh honey I wanna talk about trying to hold you.

Oh baby, baby, baby, yeah,
But you donít know,
You donít know what itís 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.
