Back to Someone To Love lyrics

Someone To Love

Seth Shapiro got his law degree
He moved to Brooklyn from Schenectady, '93
Got some clients in the food industry
He says its not the money, its the recipes

He calls his mom, says hes doing fine
Shes got somebody on the other line
Puts Coldplay on, pours a glass of wine
Curls up with a book about organized crime

When its late and its hot
(When its late and its hot)
And a date with the Late Shows all that youve got
Dont give out, dont give up
(Dont give out, dont give up)
One of these nights you might find someone to love

Someone to love
Someone to love
Someone to love

Beth McKenzie got the job of her dreams
Retouching photos for a magazine, aimed at teens
Its Thursday night she should be out on the scene
But shes sitting at home watching 'The King Of Queens'

Theres something wrong that she cant describe
She takes the contacts out of her eyes
Sets the alarm for 6:45
So she can get a little exercise

When its late and its hot
(When its late and its hot)
And an hour in the shower is the best that you've got
Dont give out, dont give up
(Dont give out, dont give up)
One of these nights you might find someone to love

Someone to love
Someone to love
Someone to love

And youre not the only one whos lonely
And youre not the only one whos lonely

Seth Shapiro is trying in vain
To hail a taxi in the morning in the pouring rain
Beth McKenzie sees one just up ahead
She cuts in front of him and leaves him for dead

Someone to love
Someone to love
Someone to love
