about

The lead single from Melanie's upcoming EP We Got This - Side Two.

lyrics

Still got the same phone number
Still drives like a maniac
She still leaves the porch light on
To guide your way back

You told yourself you had to play it safe and you did
But deep down don't you wish you had just let her in cuz

Everybody wants to be somebody's somebody
And sometimes somebody is hard to find
Everybody wants to be somebody's somebody
So won't you tell me why your wasting time
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody

If this were a movie
This would be the final scene
Where you chase her to the airport
Then get down on one knee

You told yourself you had to draw the line and you did
But deep down don't you wish you had just let her in cuz

Everybody wants to be somebody's somebody
And sometimes somebody is hard to find
Everybody wants to be somebody's somebody
So won't you tell me why your wasting time
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody

(Ba da) Do you wanna look back and say
(Ba da) I could have had it all but I was afraid?
(Ba da)Do you wanna look back and know
(Ba da)You could have had it all but you let her go oh

Everybody wants to be somebody's somebody
And sometimes somebody is hard to find
Everybody wants to be somebody's somebody
So won't you tell me why your wasting time
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody (you are)
Somebody's somebody
Somebody's somebody (you are)

(Ba da)Do you wanna look back and say
(Ba da) I could have had it all but I was afraid?
