Somebody's Somebody

Somebody's somebody
Somewhere, someone
It's 2 o'clock in the morning and I just can't sleep
Outside the rain is pourin', I'm lonely as can be
Maybe tonight'll be different than the nights before
I need to feel someone beside me, I can't be alone no more

Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I wanna belong to someone (Someone)
Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done (Oh yeah)

This big ol' world can be so empty livin' in it all alone
I realize, in its best disguise, a pretty house don't make a home
There's a hunger deep inside of me, how the fire burns
I wanna give good love to someone and get good love in return, oh

Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I wanna belong to someone (Someone)
Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done (Oh yeah)

Somebody's somebody
Someone
I wanna be somebody's body
Oh yes, oh yeah

Someone to hold me in that hour midnight
Someone to console me when things ain't goin' too right
Someone to bring me dinner sometime, yeah (Mine, all mine)
Somebody I can call all mine

It's 2:05 in the morning and I got no one to call
I'm longin' to hear another voice inside these lonely walls (Lonely walls)
Maybe tonight'll be different (different) than the nights before (Maybe not)
I need to feel someone beside me, I cannot be alone no more (No more, no more!)

Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I wanna belong to someone (Someone)
Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done (Oh yeah)

Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I wanna belong to someone (Someone)
Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody
Tonight I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done (Oh yeah)

Somebody's somebody
I don't wanna be alone, no no!
I don't wanna wait another day, no!
I'll do it over and over and over and over, yeah!

Ooh, I don't wanna wait, no!
Can I belong to you, baby? Oh yeah! (I wanna belong to someone)
Ooh, slow, deep and long
Do me over and over and over and over

(Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody)
Oh yeah
If you're out there, come on, baby
I'll keep it hot for you
(Tonight I wanna be somebody's somebody)
Come on, baby
(Tonight I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done, oh yeah)
Done

Somebody's somebody
