I want somebody to share Share the rest of my life Share my innermost thoughts Know my intimate details Someone who'll stand by my side And give me support And in return She'll get my support She will listen to me When I want to speak About the world we live in And life in general Though my views may be wrong They may even be perverted She'll hear me out And won't easily be converted To my way of thinking In fact she'll often disagree But at the end of it all She will understand me Aaaahhhhh
I want somebody who cares For me passionately With every thought and With every breath Someone who'll help me see things In a different light All the things I detest I will almost like I don't want to be tied To anyone's strings I'm carefully trying to steer clear of Those things But when I'm asleep I want somebody Who will put their arms around me And kiss me tenderly Though things like this Make me sick In a case like this I'll get away with it Aaaahhhhh

Charby Owens from Louisiana Who wrote the Lyrics for the song somebody? A friend of mine says he entered a poetry contest that Rolling Stone Magazine posted and his poem got chosen for the song “Somebody” Are the words to “somebody” used by Depeche Mode from his poem? They were with Sony Records during this time. This is amazing to me. Thanks

Shandroise De Laeken from Davao City, PhilippinesI love many things about this song, but I love its meaning the most (in my own view). I love how this song portrays the woman the man hopes for in emotional and personality aspects, not in physical aspects which happens so often. I also love how the composer emphasises he won't force his ideas on the woman; he rather delights on the clash of their opinions and adds in the end, they'll still understand each other. Then it shows the complementary aspect of a relationship between a man and a woman. That one may be weak at times, and there the other one will always be there around. Lastly, there's the emphasis on "no controlling each other". No controlling each other, no forcing of ideas on one another... the composer tells that he wants a relationship where they love one another, accepting & respecting each other's differences. No matter what difficulties they would encounter due to that, they'll still love each other and remain together through the years... Brilliant composition there, Martin Gore. But, I'll add, in every relationship, one shall change their very bad side for the relationship to keep living and growing : ))
This is a classically timeless song because it hits the heart of the listener. Still much requested in my country. (07-25-2015)
Rick from Diamond Bar, CaA dear friend of mine at the time this came out played this song for me when I was really down at the end of a relationship. One of the best platonic relationships I ever had.
Robert from Bellevue, NeThis song is wonderful I am a big fan of Depeche Mode and i feel it is the kind of relationship most people are looking for. Very Deep
Chuck from Socal, CaI sang this song to my wife during our wedding ceremony in 1990. Still married today.
Kristen from Clawson, MiThis song is so beautiful and honest re. how relationships ought to be. You're going to have fights, disagreements and heartache no matter what kind of relationship you're in, as this song can attest. When I listen to the song, I usually end up crying.
