"Somebody to love me" as written by Keinan Warsame, Andrew Wyatt, Cathy Dennis, Jason Sellards, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando, Homer Steinweiss, Alex Greenwald, Nick Movshon and Thomas Brenneck....
I don't wanna see you go,
I want somebody to love me,
Why'd it take so long to know?
I want somebody to love me,
I want somebody to be nice,
See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
Nobody's gonna save my life

We are wicked men,
Looking for our buckles to loosen,
By the count of ten,
I wanna see somebody human,
And I lost what it was, in the teenage dust of a downtown Romeo,
In a couple of weeks, you can tell all the freaks, how you carried my body home

But tonight, I crossed the line,
Dear Mr Lonely, how much do they know me?
I could find lessons in life,
But, once you've earned it, you've already burned it

I don't wanna see you go,
I need somebody to love me,
(Need somebody, oh)
Why'd it take so long to know?
I need somebody to love me,
(Need somebody, oh)
I want somebody to be nice,
See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
Nobody's gonna save my life

Got my ticket man, and I'm looking for somebody to use it,
I know we pretend, but one of these days we're gonna lose it,
And I once left town, when the leaves turn brown,
With a couple of souvenirs,
She was in my car, when we hit that wall,
Yeah, you could of moved me to tears

But tonight, I crossed the line,
I used to know her, when my house was sober,
I could find lessons in life,
Over and over, is it really over?

I don't wanna see you go,
I need somebody to love me,
(Need somebody, oh)
Why'd it take so long to know?
I need somebody to love me,
(Need somebody, oh)
I want somebody to be nice,
See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
Nobody's gonna save my life

But tonight, I crossed the line,
I used to know her, when my house was sober,
I could find lessons in life,
Over and over, is it really over?

I don't wanna see you go,
I want somebody to love me,
(Need somebody, oh)
Why'd it take so long to know?
I want somebody to love me,
(Need somebody, oh)
Yeah, I want somebody nice,
See the boy, I once was in my eyes,

    General CommentI tried to decipher the lyrics when I first heard it and this is pretty much exactly what I got, except I thought it was "We are wicked men, looking for buckles to loosen".
    I think it's about someone leaving you because you've fucked up your life, and you're thinking that this person is going to make everything better when in reality, all you need is someone to be nice and love you and accept that no one can fix your life.
