Let Somebody Love You

  • I am a poet in New York City
    You can see your face in my shoes
    I'm young and I'm alive, I've got nothing to lose
    A dream, a broken lie, a kiss, so much to resist
    And then I find you

    I am fire, you are water, nothing we can do
    I walk into the room and light your fuse

    Love is revolution
    War and famine too
    Feed the hunger in your heart
    Let somebody love you
    Let somebody love you

    Now I'm in the wilderness, somewhere in the heart of Spain
    Youth lights it up with a smile saying "Sing it again"
    A dream, a broken lie, a kiss, so much to resist
    And then I find you

    I am fire, you are water, nothing we can do
    I walk into the room and light your fuse

    Love is revolution
    War and famine too
    Feed the hunger in your heart
    Let somebody love you
    Let somebody love you

    Live [?] got a boy or a girl in your hand
    Could it be something I did or something you said
    Live [?] got a boy or a girl in your hand
    When the two sevens come together
    I'm gonna love you forever and ever

    I am fire, you are water, nothing we can do

    Love is revolution
    War and famine too
    Feed the hunger in your heart
    Let somebody love you
    Let somebody love you
    (Let somebody love you)

    A dream, a lie, a [?] kiss (Let somebody love you)
    So much to resist, yeah (Let somebody love you)
    Gotta let someone love you (Let somebody love you)
    Need to let somebody love you (Let somebody love you)
