Let the lies go

Let

He's everybody's token, on everybody's wall
Blessing all the papers, thanking one and all
Hugging all the babies, kissing all the ladies
Knowing all that you think about from writing on the wall

He's so divine, his soul shines
Breaks the night, sleep tight
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race
He says, "I'm somebody"

He's got his eye on your soul
His hand on your heart
He says, "Don't hurry, baby
Somebody up there likes me"
(Somebody)

He's the savage son of the TV tube
Planets wrote the day was due
All the wisest men around
Predicted that a man was found

Who looked a lot like you and me, yeah
Everyone with sense could see
Nothing left his eye unmoved
Had the plan, he had to use

(Somebody)
He's so divine, his soul shines
(Somebody)
Breaks the night, sleep tight
(Somebody up there)

(Somebody)
His ever loving face smiles on the whole human race
(Somebody somebody)
Somebody up there

(Somebody)
He's got his eye on your soul, his hand on your heart
He says, "Don't hurry, baby"
Somebody up there
(Somebody)

Somebody plays my song in tune
Makes me, makes me, makes me stronger for you, babe
Was a way when we were young, that
Any man was judged by what he'd done
But now you pick them on the screen
(What they look like)
Where they've been

He's got his eye on your soul
His hand on your heart
He says, "Don't hurry, baby"
(Don't hurry, baby)
Somebody up there please go
(Somebody)

And who are the people that given time, please go
(Somebody somebody)
Tell me, can they hold you under their spell
Or can they walk and hold you as well as a
Smile like Valentino could he sell you anything?
(Somebody somebody)

Keep your eyes on your soul
Keep your hand on your heart
(Don't hurry me, baby)
Don't hurry, baby
Somebody up there likes me
(Somebody)

Somebody somebody
Somebody somebody
Somebody somebody
Somebody somebody

Somebody somebody somebody
(Somebody somebody somebody somebody)
Somebody somebody somebody
(Somebody somebody somebody somebody)

Can't remember
Peace so well
(Somebody somebody)
Oh, space to ramble
Space to boogie
(Somebody somebody)

Soul shine
(Somebody)
So divine
(Somebody)
Somebody
(Somebody)

Soul shine
So divine
Somebody

(Somebody)
Somebody somebody somebody
(Somebody)

Yeah, get me man, place your man
Get me man, space your man
(Somebody)
Get me man, space your man
Soul shine
(Somebody somebody)

Soul shine
So divine
Somebody
(Somebody)

Soul shine
So divine
Somebody
