"Somebody" as written by and David Allen/tate Berg....
At a diner down on Broadway they make small talk
When she brings his eggs and fills his coffee cup
He jokes about his love life
And tells her he's about ready to give up
That's when she says I've been there before
But keep on looking because maybe who your looking for is

Somebody in the next car
Somebody on the morning train
Somebody in the coffee shop that you walk right by everyday
Somebody that you look at but never really see
Somewhere out there is somebody

Across town in a crowded elevator
He can't forget the things that waitress said
He usually reads the paper
But today he reads a strangers face instead
Its that blue eyed girl from two floors up
Maybe she's the one
Maybe he could fall in love with

Somebody in the next car
Somebody on the morning train
Somebody in the coffee shop that you walk right by everyday
Somebody that you look at but never really see
Somewhere out there is somebody

Now they laugh about the moment that it happened
The moment they both missed until that day
When he saws his future in her eyes
Instead of just another friendly face
And he wonders why he searched so long
When she was always there at that diner waitin' on

Somebody in the next car
Somebody on the morning train
Somebody in the coffee shop that you walk right by everyday
Somebody that you look at but never really see
Somewhere out there
Oh somewhere out there, is somebody.

    General CommentI really like this song. I only wish I had heard it before now when I was single, because it gives hope to those who haven't found the "right one."

    General CommentOkay so...FridayThe13thNik.That was a Horrid interpretation. Ha ha, no offence...but not everyone cares about the bra ;). AND they don't get married. the last we see of them they'r crouching on the ground picking up spilled coffee (you could take that pretty dirty)...no but its a cute song.
