I've been roaming around, always looking down at all I see
Painted faces fill the places I can't reach
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you
And all you know and how you speak
Countless lovers undercover of the street
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you

Off in the night while you live it up, I'm off to sleep
Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
Well, I hope it's gonna make you notice
Well, I hope it's gonna make you notice

Someone like me
Someone like me, use somebody

I'm ready now
I'm ready now

Someone like use somebody
Someone like use somebody
Somebody like use somebody

I've been roaming around, always looking down at all I see

    General CommentI agree, I too love this song.
    This is an amazing song and Paramore did a great job covering it.
    Nice to know that newer bands still appreciate good music, even if its old.

    General CommentI had no idea this even existed until I was browsing Paramore lyrics.... coincidentally I had just found this sight because of KOL lyrics hahahaha....creepy. anyways, she sings this beautifully. I wish it was a little louder, especially the back up vocals. But it's their version and it still sounds great.

    General CommentI think Hayley covered this very tastefully, I don't think I'd be able to stand anyone covering it. Kings Of Leon are my favourite band, I'm glad Paramore covered it and didn't destroy the song.
