Somebody's Chelsea

Album: All The Women I Am (2010)
  • Met an old man yesterday
    Next to me on a westbound plane
    He said "I was married sixty years
    I swear it feels like she's still here."
    Then he took out a picture

    Staring at that black and white
    The tears filled up in his eyes
    I said "You were a lucky man."
    He said "I feel like I still am."

    When he told me her name
    I heard myself say

    I wanna be Somebody's Chelsea
    Somebody's world
    Somebody's day and night
    One and only girl
    A part of a love story
    That never has an end
    You know that's what every woman wants to be
    Somebody's Chelsea

    He made me laugh when he talked about
    Their first date and her father's doubts
    He said "Even as her hair turned gray,
    She still took my breath away."
    And that it never changed with time
    That's when I closed my eyes

    I wanna be Somebody's Chelsea
    Somebody's world
    Somebody's day and night
    One and only girl
    A part of a love story
    That never has an end
    You know that's what every woman wants to be
    Somebody's Chelsea

    And when we finally said goodbye
    I hugged him and said "I'll never forget
    How you showed me what it means"

    To be Somebody's Chelsea
    Somebody's world
    Somebody's day and night
    One and only girl
    A part of a love story
    That never has an end
    You know that's what every woman wants to be
    And I wanna be
    Somebody's Chelsea
    Somebody's Chelsea
    Somebody's Chelsea
