Depeche Mode Somebody

Somebody is one of the most beautiful love songs which I have known by heart since 1984 and this is one of the songs which I still love to sing. The lyrics of the song just touches me somehow. I hope you would love this as much as I do. I have posted another live version below where Alan Wilder was playing the piano on “Somebody” at the Royal Albert Hall 2010.02.17 in London.

Lyrics of Somebody by Depeche Mode

I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who’ll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She’ll get my support
She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general
Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She’ll hear me out
And won’t easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she’ll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought and
With every breath
Someone who’ll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don’t want to be tied
To anyone’s strings
I’m carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I’m asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I’ll get away with it

Stalk me
Share the joy

    Hi BK .. I love this song – and am so pleased you’ve let us have the words to it .. I haven’t had a chance to listen to the two versions .. but perhaps I’ll come back when I’m looking at something and have a listen.

    All the best and hope you’re well .. cheers Hilary
