Lyrics

Somebody by Ileana Burdine

She feels invisible except for her dress
That holds all her courage in place
She tries to pretend to her awkward group of friends
Her id's not all that she fakes
He instantly knows how to convert
Her need is borne like a cross
She longs to be someone's one and only
Worth it at any cost ohh

He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at, he looks at
He looks at me like I'm somebody

She prays to him on her knees every night
And afterwards he drives her home
She confesses to him that she's not very pretty
Her penance to wait by the phone
She tells all her friends that he likes her best
Too young to know she's lost her pride
He may not be much but it's something to hold to
When there is nothing inside ohh

He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at, he looks at
He looks at me like I'm somebody

Deep down she knows it's not really enough
She's smarter than this
But her defense is that

He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at, he looks at
He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at me like I'm somebody
He looks at, he looks at, he looks at me like I'm
He looks at, he looks at, he looks at me like I'm
He looks at, he looks at
he looks at me like I'm somebody
