"Never Had Nobody Like You" as written by and M. Ward....
Well, since time I had a mind, I been lazy
And times before that I was cruel
And times before that I was lean, I was mad
Honey, I ain't never had nobody like you

And the times before that, well, I was crazy
I saw the dark side of the moon
And the stars in the sky, they never caught my eye
'Cause I ain't never had nobody like you
I ain't never had nobody like you

Now it's just like ABC
Life's just like 123
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Ah oh

I watched my own habits die and its painful
sometimes its painful in the light of the truth
but you can be faster than light
I'd like to thank you tonight
Honey, I ain't never had nobody like you
I ain't never had nobody like you

And it's just like ABC
Life's just like 123
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Ah oh

I trusted liars and thieves in my madness
Honey I was wasting away in the room
But now that I been through that hell I got a story to tell
Honey, I ain't never had nobody like you
I ain't I never had nobody like you
I ain't never had nobody like you

    General CommentNot really much to analyze here. Just a good old fashioned love song. But, it's so infectious. I could listen to this song all day long. It's terrific.

    General CommentI think it's an homage to songs or artists that he admires.
    Time out of mind...Bob Dylan
    Dark Side of the Mind...Pink Floyd
    ABC 123...Jackson 5
    Old Habits (Die Hard)...Rolling Stones

    and maybe there are more that I didn't get.
    "Never Had Nobody Like You"...maybe it's a nice compliment to musicians so excellent and (in their time) unique. I really dig it.

    General CommentFew corrections to my ears:

    Well, since time out of mind, I been lazy

    But you kept me fast to the light

    And I'm not sure about the first two lines of the last stanza...don't sound quite right to me, but can't make them out

    General CommentI love Zoey Deschanels back up vocals. Pretty simple, yet great song.. he was unhappy with his life until he met a certain someone.

    General CommentHey all, I'm posting the slightly corrected lyrics here. I mainly just added where delia forgot the "honeys" and the "ain'ts".

    Well since time out of mind I been lazy
    and times before that I was cruel
    and the times before that
    I was mean, I was mad
    Honey I ain't never had nobody like you

    And the times before that well I was crazy
    I saw the dark side of the moon
    And the stars in the sky
    They never caught my eye
    Cuz I ain't never had nobody like you
    I ain't never had nobody like you

    But now it's just like ABC
    Life's just like 1...2..3

    I watched my old habits die & it was painful
    Sometimes it's painful in the light of the truth
    But you kept me fast to the right
    And I wanna thank you tonight
    Honey I ain't never had nobody like you
    I ain't never had nobody like you

    But now it's just like ABC
    Life's just like 1...2..3

    I trusted liars and thieves in my blindness
    Honey, I was wasting away at the root
    But now that I've been through that hell
    I got a story to tell
    Honey I ain't never had nobody like you
    I ain't never had nobody like you

    General CommentA love song from one musician to another. The relationship goes back many years and covers a lot of painful times for the speaker. The beloved has been patient through it all and it's time to say thank you and sorry.
