Oh yeah
(Try to get up, try to get up)
(Try to get up, try to get up)

Wait and see because you know you need somebody

I said, the lovin' you lost is just one of the costs
When you're livin' in the streets and you're runnin' from cops
And everyday, it's just the price you pay
When you're livin' by the words and the things you say

And if your mother only knew
That all these things you say you know are true

c'mon and a little woman, yes, the one you wanted
The type of woman leave you brokenhearted
Got the type of body that you can't ignore

Said, you got a lot of money but you can't afford
A little lovin' from the wrong side
Of the bed you sleepin' for the long night

Wait and see because you know you need somebody

(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah
(Try to get up, please somebody)

You're sayin' that you're leavin', baby
I don't think that you're comin' back
And nothing's meant to last forever
Let me know what you think about that

'Cause taking time to think about it
Only means that you'll work it out
Said thinkin' that you need her
And what it's all about, c'mon and

If your mother only knew
That all the things you say you know are true

And if you're thinkin' that you need someone new
You'll have to wait and see because you know you need somebody

(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah
(Try to get up, please somebody)

    General CommentThis song, whoa. It's amazing. He says "And if you're thinking that you need someone new
    You'll have to wait and see because you know you need somebody" meaning okay, yeah you want somebody different. But find them before you leave the one you have. And talking about if your mother only knew part, is saying that your opinions are based on real things, and sometimes parents honestly just can't understand.
    But I also see it in a different light at the same time. He says she's leaving. So I would think that the "someone new" is a rebound. And rebounds are not good. ;)
