about

I wrote 'Love Somebody' when I realized how easy it is for us to be compassionate with the people we love, but how hard it is for us to offer the same to ourselves. Romantic love is so disproportionately represented in music, that I wanted to shine a spotlight on other kinds of love - for friends, for our passions, and maybe most importantly, love and kindness towards ourselves!

This is actually my first ever song remix, too! 🎈🎉🎈🎊🎈 You might recognize it from the original release on the Simple Songs album ( bit.ly/3pcwSpD ), but Charles Tilden & I put the live band vibe back for this version, and I love it!

lyrics

I look in your eyes
You can’t say you’re always fine
But promise that I’ve got you on my mind

When I’m aching from life
Which happens more than I’d like
You’re the one that helps me keep the time

Songs about romance I’ve sang them all
But you and I go back – we were born right next door

When I-i-i-I love someone, I love someone, I love someone
When I-i-i-I trust someone, I trust someone, I trust someone
To shake the dirt and take the pain
For what it’s worth I won’t go away
When I-i-i-i love someone
I love someone

When I’m feeling alone
Spending days inside my phone
In Real Life you guide me safely home

I remember birthdays, break-ups - we have seen them all
Cause you and I go back – we were born right next door

When I-i-i-I love someone, I love someone, I love someone
When I-i-i-I trust someone, I trust someone, I trust someone
To shake the dirt and take the pain
For what it’s worth I won’t go away
When I-i-i-i love someone, I

Love somebody
Love somebody
Love somebody
Love someone, I
Love somebody
Love somebody
Love somebody
Love someone, I
Love somebody
Love somebody
Love somebody

When I love someone
When I trust someone
Ohhh to shake the dirt and take the pain
For what it’s worth I won’t go away
When I-i-i-i love someone, I

Love somebody
Love somebody
Love somebody
Love someone, I
Love somebody
Love somebody
