"Everybody Wants Somebody" as written by and Patrick Stump....
I, tonight, I feel like being alone
If you don't mind, if you don't mind
Would you please be so kind
To close the door behind you

It's been a long, long time
Since I've had this line of doubt
Out loud

So I deny I feel like
I feel like, I feel, baby now

Everybody wants somebody
Who doesn't want them,
Or wants somebody else, baby
You want somebody?
Oh, you want someone?
Somebody else, somebody else

Listen up
Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get
Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get

A young man is a pull pin
Looking for a grenade, yeah
A young woman will drive you places
You never meant to go
But epiphany is such a cliche
Well, there's plenty of fish in the wrong sea
Like there's a premium on mystery again

Hold me, distract me
Dress me up in bubbles, baby
Save me from the troubles
Of my own skin, yeah

Everybody wants somebody
Who doesn't want them
Or wants somebody else, baby
You want somebody?
Oh, you want someone?
Somebody else, somebody else

Listen up
Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get
Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get

So I, tonight, I feel like
I feel like, I feel

Everybody wants somebody
Who doesn't want them
Or wants somebody else, baby
You want somebody?
Oh, you want someone?
Somebody else, somebody else
(Somebody, somebody)

Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get
Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get

Everybody
Everybody wants somebody
Who doesn't want them
Or wants somebody else, baby
You want somebody?
Oh, you want someone?
Somebody else, somebody else

Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get
Don't get hurt, don't you get hurt
Don't get hurt, don't you get

    General CommentThe song is basically about how some people "like" or have feelings for other people, but the ones they like don't ever like them back, and maybe someone likes the singer, but he doesn't like them. It's just a way of saying we don't always get the people we "like" or have feelings for. "Don't you get hurt" simply means to be careful and not put yourself out there too much, and an even deeper interpretation is to maybe give a person that likes you, but you just think is "okay", a chance to be with you, but in the end, be sure to be careful and don't let your guard down easily.
