"Someone"

[ from the album "20 Vodka Jellies" (1996) ]

Lyrics

I've been walking round the town looking for someone just you
I've been sleeping on my own dreaming of someone just like you
I've been spinning in my sleep dreaming of someone just like you
I've been asking every creep if they know someone just like you

I know that girls like you exist
I'm an eternal optimist
I'm confused, I'm still true

Overground underground all the time looking for someone just like you
Round and round on the Circle Line looking for someone just like you
I've been spinning all night long looking for someone just like you
I've turned London upside down looking for someone just like you

Maybe I was chasing my shadow as it flickered by on the wall
Maybe I was chasing, chasing after nothing at all

I've been yearning every day for someone just like you
I even get down on my knees and pray sometimes for someone just like you

I know that songs like this exist
I'm just an old post-modernist
It's been used, it's still true

Maybe I was chasing my shadow as it flickered by on the wall
Maybe I've been chasing, chasing after nothing at all

I'm probably mad
I'm probably mad
Mad
I'm probably mad
I'm probably mad
