Love Songs: If you Love Somebody Set Them Free & other Somebodies

I really "love" this song...

Released in the 1985, near the time Sting broke up with The Police permanently, Dream of the Blue Turtles was his initial effort solo. If you love somebody (set them free) was his big pop hit from it. (Fortress Around Your Heart is another song from it.) With famous musicians Kenny Kirkland and Brandford Marsalis (who was musical director for the Tonight Show with Jay Leno) playing alongside him on the Nothing Like The Sun tour(Shakespeare's Sonnet), I got to see "If you love somebody", and many, many others performed in a top-notch manner.

Here are the lyrics to "If you Love Somebody":

If you need somebody,
call my name
If you want someone,
you can do the same
If you want to keep something precious
You got to lock it up and throw away the key
If you want to hold onto your possession
Don't even think about me

If you love somebody, set them free

If it's a mirror you want,
just look into my eyes
Or a whipping boy,
someone to despise
Or a prisoner in the dark
Tied up in chains you just can't see
Or a beast in a gilded cage
That's all some people ever want to be

If you love somebody, set them free

You can't control an independent heart
Can't tear the one you love apart
Forever conditioned to believe that we can't live
We can't live here and be happy with less
So many riches, so many souls
Everything we see we want to possess

If you need somebody,
call my name
If you want someone,
you can do the same
If you want to keep something precious
You got to lock it up and throw away the key
If you want to hold onto your possession
Don't even think about me

If you love somebody, set them free





Queen's Somebody to Love



Queen's Lyrics:
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
Each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
Take a look in the mirror and cry
Lord what youre doing to me
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just cant get no relief,Lord!

Somebody, somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard every day of my life
I work till I ache my bones
At the end I take home my hard earned pay all on my own -I get down on my knees
And I start to pray
Till the tears run down from my eyes
Lord - somebody - somebody
Can anybody find me - somebody to love? (he works hard)
Everyday - I try and I try and I try -But everybody wants to put me down
They say Im goin crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Got no common senseI got nobody left to believe

Yeah - yeah yeah yeah
Oh lord
Somebody - somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat
Im ok, Im alright
Aint gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
Someday Im gonna be free, lord!

Find me somebody to love
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

And lastly, 'Somebody' by Depeche Mode:


Lyrics too:
I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She'll get my support
She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general

Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She'll hear me out
And won't easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she'll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought and
With every breath
Someone who'll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don't want to be tied
To anyone's strings
I'm carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I'm asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it

KEEP IT FRESH TO DEATH!!!!
