  • All my life, waiting for somebody
    Ah ha ha, come and take my hand
    All my life, waiting for somebody
    Ah ha ha, whoa, yeah

    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha

    Been down so long, doesn't really matter
    This downtown home, been kicked and I've been spurred
    You comin' along? It does't really matter
    I go it alone, it doesn't even hurt

    All my life, waiting for somebody
    Ah ha ha, whoa, yeah
    All my life, waiting on somebody
    Ah ha ha, ooh, yeah

    I'm waitin' for the day
    Waitin' for the day that you come my way

    Hey, hey, ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha

    I drove down deep, I made a big decision
    I'm going to sleep and I'm going there alone
    I know damn well I'm tired of all this cryin'
    On my feet as far as I can tell

    I'm waitin' for the day
    Waitin' for the day that you come my way

    Somebody
    Somebody
    Somebody
    Somebody

    Waiting for somebody
    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha
    I want somebody
    Ah ha ha
    Ah ha ha
    Waiting for somebody
    Ah ha ha
    Waiting for somebody
    Ah ha ha
    I'm waiting for somebody
    All my life (ah ha ha)
    Hey, hey, hey, ah ha ha, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey Writer/s: PAUL WESTERBERG

  • Brian from Boston, MaPaul Westerberg is one of the most underated song writers of all time.His songs are honest and real. When I think of all the American idol showtune dance "I want to be a star" bulls--t that is music today I realize Paul is the antidote to all that. When I hear his songs I wonder where the hell has rock and roll gone today.
  • Tony from Sunshine Coast, Qld, AustraliaIn addition to being on the soundtrack of the Cameron Crowe film "Singles", this song also appeared as a B-side to the single "World Class Fad".
