Met an old man yesterday
Next to me on a westbound plane
He said "I was married sixty years
I swear it feels like she's still here."
Then he took out a picture

Staring at that black and white
The tears filled up in his eyes
I said "You were a lucky man."
He said "I feel like I still am."

When he told me her name
I heard myself say

I wanna be Somebody's Chelsea
Somebody's world
Somebody's day and night
One and only girl
A part of a love story
That never has an end
You know that's what every woman wants to be
Somebody's Chelsea

He made me laugh when he talked about
Their first date and her father's doubts
He said "Even as her hair turned gray,
She still took my breath away."
And that it never changed with time
That's when I closed my eyes

I wanna be Somebody's Chelsea
Somebody's world
Somebody's day and night
One and only girl
A part of a love story
That never has an end
You know that's what every woman wants to be
Somebody's Chelsea

And when we finally said goodbye
I hugged him and said "I'll never forget
How you showed me what it means"

To be Somebody's Chelsea
Somebody's world
Somebody's day and night
One and only girl
A part of a love story
That never has an end
You know that's what every woman wants to be
And I wanna be
Somebody's Chelsea
Somebody's Chelsea
Somebody's Chelsea
Somebody's Chelsea

    General CommentI really like this song. I only wish I had heard it before now when I was single, because it gives hope to those who haven't found the "right one."

    General CommentOkay so...FridayThe13thNik.That was a Horrid interpretation. Ha ha, no offence...but not everyone cares about the bra ;). AND they don't get married. the last we see of them they'r crouching on the ground picking up spilled coffee (you could take that pretty dirty)...no but its a cute song.
