I can't stand to let you win
I'm just watching you
And I don't know what to do
Feeling like a fool inside
Feeling all that you hide
Thought you my friend
Seems it never ends

I need somebody, someone
Can't somebody help me?
All I need is to be
Loved, just for me

Giving you with this and that
Giving gave nothing back
It's all related to
All the things I do
Feeling like a fool inside
Seeing all the things you tried
I am nothing

I need somebody, someone
Can't somebody help me?
All I need is to be
Loved, just for me

I look, I sign
I need someone
Inside to help me out
With what
I`m trying
I'm crying
I'm praying
In a pile of
Shit
I'm dying
I'm dying

I need somebody, somebody, somebody, someone
I need somebody, somebody, somebody, som eone
Someone

    General Commentthis song is telling the story of johnathan's days at high school, when basically he was the definitive freak show. It shows how badly he wanted to beat the "jocks" at something and how much he craved friendhsip and or companionship

    General CommentAaah, one of my favorites. The contrast of the chorus followed by the shouting has much of an effect on me.

    General CommentThe first bit sounds like he's sitting in a room with one of his parents and they've just had an arguement(I can't stand to let you win). He's staring at the other person and feeling stupid. He know's he/she/they love him(its actually "feeling all the love you hide") but wishes they had a better way of showing it. He wishes they could stop arguing.

    He needs somebody because he isn't getting the love he needs from his parents.("all I need is to be... loved just for me" ) He wan'ts his parents to love him for who he is.

    He does all kinds of stuff for them (chores prob.) but they still don't let him do anything because of whatever reason. Probably something to do with Jonathan's style, friends, habits, etc.("loved just for me..." remember?).

    He does everything they ask him to but they still won't let him do whatever thing (giving gave nothing back) because of whatever they don't like about him. He feels stupid because they've tried so much to make things better and now they're practically ignoring him (i am nothing).

    He looks and signs. Signs what? A contract maybe? I'm thinking a therapist or councilor to help him deal with his issues with his parents. But the therapy doesn't work out and so he feels worse then before. And so he needs somebody else to help him but he feels lost because he has no idea who.

    General CommentI think that the forst line of this is wrong... I think its actually
    I cannot stand to let you in
    I think the song is about his inability to relate to people... he cannot let people inside and he cannot be open or honest with them... they do not know who he is and all he can do is sit there and remain closed off as he watches people and while he longs to relate to them he is terrified to do so for he fears rejection.
