LSS: Use Somebody by Kings of Leon

Among the eleven tracks in their album Only by the Night, “Use Somebody” was the song that gave me goose pimples. It has a unique effect on me. It helped me re-evaluate the people around me. Ultimately, people who genuinely care about you are within arm’s reach. Looking further will only prolong the emptiness that one feels. Somehow, that was the effect it had on me.

Use Somebody
Songwriters: Followill, Caleb

I’ve been roaming around, I was looking down at all I see
Painted faces fill the places I can’t reach
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
Countless lovers under cover of the street
You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you

Off in the night while you live it up I’m off to sleep
Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
I hope it’s gonna make you notice
I hope it’s gonna make you notice

Someone like me, someone like me
Someone like me, somebody

I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now, I’m ready now
I’m ready now

Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody

I’ve been roaming around, I was looking down at all I see
