To Love Somebody [Bee Gees]

[Covers]

The original song by the Bee Gees is in a major key and very up-sounding, and I knew it wouldn't fit that way. So I slipped it all into a minor key, so it's the same melody but sadder. We finished the demo and my engineer thought it was one of the best things we've ever done -- and that was just the demo. So I'm pretty good friends with Robert Smith from the Cure who were a big influence on me. We're not just rock buddies, we sort of have a loving relationship from afar. So I called Robert up and said, "Will you sing on my record?" He said, "Sure, whatever you want." I said, "It's a Bee Gees song." Over the Transatlantic line I hear Robert Smith going "The Bee Gees?" I said, "Trust me, just do your thing and it will be fine." He did and it was great. (BC, SheKnows.com interview Aug. 2005)

 

Lyrics

there's a light
a certain kind of light
that never shone me on
i want my life to be
lived with you, lived with you

there's a way
everybody said
to do each and every little thing, yeah
but what does it bring
if i a'int got you, a'int got you

you don't know what it's like
you don't know what it's like
to love somebody, to love somebody
the way i love you

it's the same
i see your face again
i know my frame of mind, yeah
you a'int got to be so blind
am i so blind, blind to believe

i'm a man
can't you see
this is what i am, yeah
i live and breathe for you
but what good does it do
if i a'int got you?

you don't know what it's like
you don't know what it's like
to love somebody, to love somebody
the way i love you

you don't know what it's like
you don't know what it's like
to love somebody, to love somebody
the way i love you

to love somebody, to love somebody
the way i love you
