To Love Somebody

Barry Alan Crompton Gibb b. 1 September 1946, Robin Hugh Gibb b. 22 December 1949 originally recorded by the Bee Gees (1967).

There's a light - Certain kinda light
Never ever - Never shone on me - No, no.
Hon, I want - I want my whole life to be
Lived with you, babe.
That's what I want - Oh,
Was to be livin', lovin' you.

There's a way - Oh everybody say
You can do anything - Every thing, Yeah.
But what good - What good,
Honey, What good could it ever bring
'cause I ain't got you with my love
And I can't find you babe, No I can't.

You don't know - You don't know what it's like
No you don't - Honey no, You don't know
You don't know what it's like
To love anybody.
Oh hon I wanna talk about love
And trying to hold somebody
The way I love you babe.
And I've been loving you babe.

In my brain - Oh I can see your face again.
I know my frame of mind, Yeah.
But nobody - Nobody has to ever be so blind
Honey like I did - I know I was blind.
Hon I tell you that I was - I was very, very blind.
Oh-woa-woa, But I'm just a girl
Can't you just take a look at me and tell ?
Tell that I live - Honey I live and I breathe for you
Don't you know I do ?

But what good ? - What good ?
Honey, what good can it ever do ?
'cause I ain't got you - That's all I ever wanted
And I ain't got you, babe - Oh but I've been looking 'round.
But you don't know - You don't know what it's like
No you don't - No, No, No - You don't know
Honey, you don't know what it's like
Oh to love anybody.
Oh hon I wanna talk about
Trying to hold somebody when you're lonely
The way I love you, babe
And I just want you to know I tried.

Oh I know that there's a way
'cause everybody came to me one time and said
Honey you can do anything
Every little thing - and I think I can.
Oh, but what good ? - What good ?
Honey what awfully good can it ever - Ever bring ?
'cause I can't find you with my love
And I can't find you babe, Oh anywhere.

Oh, But you don't know
You don't know what it's like
No you don't and you never ever did.
You don't know
Honey you don't know what it's like
Oh, To love anybody
Oh hon I wanna talk about trying to hold you.

Oh babe, babe, baby, yeah
But you don't know
You don't know what it's like
And you never ever, ever did
I said I - I tried to throw my love around you
And I tried to help you darling.
But you never ever - No you never ever
No you never ever - No you never ever
I know that - You know that
No you never ever, ever
Oh let me throw my love
Throw my love all around you, yeah. ¥Ç¥
