I can see the path you're cuttin,
it cost me a little piece of my heart.
I can see the doors you're shuttin,
cause they were open at the start.

Baby loving you has been hard on me.
You're such a tough little sister,
just looking for Mr. Right,
on the wrong side of town.

You better love somebody,
it's late.
You better love somebody,
don't wait.
You better love somebody,
don't tempt fate.
You're gonna push it just a little too far one night.

Your eyes are wild, your skins so white.
You're under-nourished and overfed.
She's got the teeth, she knows how to bite,
cause when you bit, I bled.

You got the perfect image of the perfect man.
You're a tough little sister,
but you'll settle for a mister tonight,
but you're running out of time.

You better love somebody,
it's late.
You better love somebody,
don't wait.
You better love somebody,
don't tempt fate.
You're gonna push it just a little too far one night.

I'm only saying what I feel,
you think I'm wrong, I know.
You thought I was sleeping at the wheel,
I thought that you were driving.

You better love somebody...
You better love somebody...

You better love somebody,
it's late.
You better love somebody,
don't wait.
You better love somebody,
don't tempt fate.
You're gonna push it just a little too far one night.

One night - oh oh oh oh, one night - oh oh oh oh
One night - oh oh oh oh, one night - oh oh oh oh

    My InterpretationThe name of this song is actually just "Love Somebody", from the "Hard to Hold" soundtrack (I've never seen the movie but I've heard it's pretty bad).

    The lyrics seem pretty straight forward -- sung from the perspective of a guy who loves a woman who won't love him back because she's fixated on finding "the perfect man", and the guy is warning her that she better "love somebody" before it's "too late".

    Although the first few lines make it clear that he's been personally affected by her lack of love, the fact that he says "you better love somebody" instead of "me" indicates he has already moved away from the idea that they'll ever be together, but is still frustrated by her attitude and wants her to open her mind.
