Somebody To Love

Album: Pageant Material (2015)
  • We're all hoping, we're all hopeless
    We're all thorns and we're all roses
    We're all looking down our noses at ourselves
    We're all flawed and we're all perfect
    We're all lost and we're all hurting
    And just searching for somebody to love

    We're all liars, we're all legends
    We're all tens, I'd want elevens
    We're all trying to get to heaven, but not today
    We're all happy, we're all hatin'
    We're all patiently impatient
    And just waiting for somebody to love

    We're all good, but we ain't angels
    We all sin, but we ain't devils
    We're all pots and we're all kettles
    But we can't see it in ourselves
    We're all livin' 'til we're dying
    We ain't cool, but man, we're trying
    Just thinking we'll be fixed by someone else

    We all wrangle with religion
    We all talk, but we don't listen
    We're all starving for attention then we'll run
    We're all paper, we're all scissors
    We're all fightin' with our mirrors
    Scared we'll never find somebody to love

    We're all good, but we ain't angels
    We all sin, but we ain't devils
    We're all pots and we're all kettles
    But we can't see it in ourselves
    We're all livin' 'til we're dying
    We ain't cool, but man, we're trying
    Thinking we'll be fixed by someone else

    Just tryin' to hold it all together
    We all wish our best was better
    Just hopin' that forever's really real
    We'll miss a dime to grab a nickel
    Overcomplicate the simple
    We're all little kids just looking for love
    Yeah, don't we all just want somebody to love? Writer/s: SHANE L. MCANALLY, SAM HUNT, JOSH OSBORNE
