"I Want Someone Badly" as written by and Nathan Larson....
Now I want someone badly
Got a girl here tonight
Wants someone new
Someone new
A little cry wants someone badly
I want to know if this is a bad lease on me

I want to know
I want to know
Am I sure that I heard you right
I want to know
If you're leaving just do it tonight

Now I want someone badly
To burn in here with me
But listen baby
'cause I cry all over madly
Don't do anything do it for/with me

Ooh I want to know
Am I sure that I have your love
I want to know
If you're leaving just make sure it's right

Now I want someone badly
Could it be true
That someone is you

    General CommentUmm... right on the money, but Jeff had absolutely no part in writing this song. The folks at Shudder To Think had their own version and there's the version they have with Jeff on vocals. His version is much better. It evokes more emotion.

    General CommentThere is no way anybody can listen to the first line of this song and NOT fall in love with it... Jeff Buckley's voice was so incredibly beautiful! "Could it be true, that someone is you"...

    General CommentI think anything said about this song will never say how grear it really is. I seriously think that Jeff Buckley was the most talented artist in the world. No words can give him justice...

    that someone is you

    i love the way he sings this part.. he's one of the only singers I've ever heard where you actually believe he means what hes singing. and i know he didn't write this song but he sings it so amazingly you could believe he did
