  • When you're alone and in a corner
    Your only mourner, is the face that
    Appears in the nearest mirror
    You've gotta get it going and somehow knowing
    You're gonna have it better than you ever had it, because
    Everybody needs somebody
    Everybody's got the right to love

    If it were me, say I
    I'd say I
    But if it's you, say you
    Cause if you could give in for a minute
    Put your soul in it
    We could get it together and forever love
    So what's the use of running boy
    You know there ain't no point in running
    You need somebody, somebody to love you
    Cause everybody needs somebody
    Everybody's got the right to love
    You got the right to say I, need somebody
    I need you, he needs me
    Come together, talk to me, oh yeah

    You can have all the things that you desire
    But without love you just can't survive
    Cause you need love to warm your heart at night
    When you're all alone and no comfort's in sight
    You need somebody
    Everybody needs somebody, oh yeah
    Everybody's got the right to love
