  • I don't wanna see you go,
    I want somebody to love me,
    Why'd it take so long to know?
    I want somebody to love me,
    I want somebody to be nice,
    See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
    Nobody's gonna save my life

    We are wicked men,
    Looking for our buckles to loosen,
    By the count of ten,
    I wanna see somebody human,
    And I lost what it was, in the teenage dust of a downtown Romeo,
    In a couple of weeks, you can tell all the freaks, how you carried my body home

    But tonight, I crossed the line,
    Dear Mr Lonely, how much do they know me?
    I could find lessons in life,
    But, once you've earned it, you've already burned it

    I don't wanna see you go,
    I need somebody to love me,
    (Need somebody, oh)
    Why'd it take so long to know?
    I need somebody to love me,
    (Need somebody, oh)
    I want somebody to be nice,
    See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
    Nobody's gonna save my life

    Got my ticket man, and I'm looking for somebody to use it,
    I know we pretend, but one of these days we're gonna lose it,
    And I once left town, when the leaves turn brown,
    With a couple of souvenirs,
    She was in my car, when we hit that wall,
    Yeah, you could of moved me to tears

    But tonight, I crossed the line,
    I used to know her, when my house was sober,
    I could find lessons in life,
    Over and over, is it really over?

    I don't wanna see you go,
    I need somebody to love me,
    (Need somebody, oh)
    Why'd it take so long to know?
    I need somebody to love me,
    (Need somebody, oh)
    I want somebody to be nice,
    See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
    Nobody's gonna save my life

    But tonight, I crossed the line,
    I used to know her, when my house was sober,
    I could find lessons in life,
    Over and over, is it really over?

    I don't wanna see you go,
    I want somebody to love me,
    (Need somebody, oh)
    Why'd it take so long to know?
    I want somebody to love me,
    (Need somebody, oh)
    Yeah, I want somebody nice,
    See the boy, I once was in my eyes,
