I rediscovered this song a couple months ago and have been meaning to post it. Mostly just so I remember this obsession of mine (with the song, not dude's hair in the video, believe me. Yikesah). But this is also for your benefit. It's a good song. (And everyone should remember these horrible styles and to keep them from ever repeating.)

"Somebody" by Depeche Mode

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 
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
And in a place like this 
I'll get away with it

  1. good song. I can't believe that people thought those styles were cool just over 20 years ago...
