lyrics

[Hook: Bekah]

Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you,
Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you

[Verse 1: Cee]

At the crack of the down, the alarm breaks the silence of the morning,
He awakens to another laborious day of boredom,
The monotony of everyday life killed his dreams off,
The last trace of his ambition, it seems gone,
Now emotions run raw, always seesaw,
It's like he's living hypothetically, by default,
Just the threat of being broke keeps him motivated,
But his broken soul is slowly fading and he fuckin' hate it,
He wanna quit but the mortgage and bills call,
Plus the boss insisting on daily busting his steel balls,
(Yes sir) And he says it with a smile,
And every time that he try, he dies a little bit inside,
And it seems so hopeless, he'll never get in front of,
Having too much month left at the end of the money,
And then his girl has enough of him, she falling out of love again,
Thinking of maybe dumping him, she sick of all the struggling,
But all he needed was to wake up man,
The day his missus nearly left him was a kick up the ass,
And looking back, a decade he wasted, old path, he changed it,
New man that he created became him,
And so, his dreams moved from dormant to more important,
And now he's looking forward to waking up in the morning,
As he types his resignation, he's buzzin', 'Fuck y'all!',
New plans so the man that he wasn't would come forward and um

[Hook: Bekah]

Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you,
Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you

[Verse 2: Bekah]

Life can get a little tough sometimes,
And it's those special ones that push you through,
You always say not to thank you,
But I gotta let you know I'm so grateful,
I don't know what it is (I don't know what it is),
I know I can make it (yes I can),
May not be on my own (own),
A nudge from you, it's game on (on, it's game on),
Life's a pleasure with people like you (people like you),
You cry and laugh, but you get through (get through),
Everybody needs that somebody (ay),
People like you

[Hook: Bekah]

Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you,
Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you

[Verse 3: Hugo1]

Round 1, the bell tolls for the formerly proud son,
Eternally searching for the first door to pound on,
A prodigal in a corridor, a recurring dream with a groundhog,
And an agent saying 'What good's a phone call with your mouth gone?'
The sound's on but the tape's melting, record skipping,
Can't tell if it's the next one or the same day just ending,
Feeling demented, germinating the seeds of an evil tendency,
A weakened predator on the receiving end of a feeding frenzy,
Hyenas they came pretending, invisible waves ascending,
Attempting to make him cave in to elevated tension,
Left him in the paternal hands that bruised him,
Cigarettes from figureheads pushed the cancer through him,
A phantom grew in him, a panther chewin' him,
Catholicism just offered him optimism and a false sense of absolution,
Absolutely abject, sins so sinister revolving,
Around his future coffin so no minister could ever absolve him,
And too often new taunts bringing through thoughts grew some new monsters,
Too lost in gruesome shots locked into nuance of what his crew wants,
And who wants to live in a shoebox with two locks,
Serving a few twats, drinking soupcons and soup with croutons,
He lose the plot, the monster grows his actions,
We need someone, he met his on the road to Damascus,
To know his moments of lapses, and help his fortune flip,
He chose a better course in this, a metamorphosis

[Hook: Bekah]

Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you,
Everybody needs that somebody to help you through,
Everybody needs that somebody, someone like you
