"wating for somebody" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
All my life, waiting for somebody
Ah ha ha, come and take my hand
All my life, waiting for somebody
Ah ha ha, whoa, yeah

Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha

Been down so long, doesn't really matter
This downtown home, been kicked and I've been spurred
You comin' along? It does't really matter
I go it alone, it doesn't even hurt

All my life, waiting for somebody
Ah ha ha, whoa, yeah
All my life, waiting on somebody
Ah ha ha, ooh, yeah

I'm waitin' for the day
Waitin' for the day that you come my way

Hey, hey, ah ha ha
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha

I drove down deep, I made a big decision
I'm going to sleep and I'm going there alone
I know damn well I'm tired of all this cryin'
On my feet as far as I can tell

I'm waitin' for the day
Waitin' for the day that you come my way

Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody

Waiting for somebody
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha
I want somebody
Ah ha ha
Ah ha ha
Waiting for somebody
Ah ha ha
Waiting for somebody
Ah ha ha
I'm waiting for somebody
All my life (ah ha ha)
Hey, hey, hey, ah ha ha, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

    General CommentPretty basic... he's waiting for his soulmate to come along and meet him. Seems to be having a rough time waiting it out though.
    The last verse is a little less straitforward, but I think he's passing up being with someone whom he knows isn't really the one for him, yes is attracted to him.

    Good song. Seems like this one could have become a hit... oh well.

    General CommentGreat song. Some have speculated the "going to sleep, going there alone"line is a suicidal reference.

    General Commenti read the last line as also meaning that everyone dies alone in the end, so what is the point of crying about not having someone ?

    i do think this and dyslexic heart are also to be heart in the context of the SINGLES movie. more in line with the movie and its characters.
