The Lemon Twigs – Somebody Loving You


I told you not to wait for me to come home
To love another’s worse than being alone
She said through the phone
Talking and talking away

I didn’t hear a single word that she said
Her heart remained with me while mine was in bed
With some other head
Lying a pillow away

You can’t handle somebody loving you
I can’t hear you with my fingers in my eardrums
You can’t catch someone who relies on you
I can’t fear what I’ve never experienced

I live with someone but it’s always been me
I closed my heart so I could have you for free
Unchained but not free
A weed in a garden divine

I should feel one with all but now I’m just one
I’ll either find my love or find me some fun
Nothing I’ve done is bringing me closer at all

You can’t handle somebody loving you
I can’t hear you with my fingers in my eardrums
You can’t catch someone who relies on you
I can’t fear what I’ve never experienced

You can’t handle somebody loving you
I can’t hear you with my fingers in my eardrums
You can’t catch someone who relies on you
I can’t fear what I’ve never experienced

You can’t handle somebody loving you
I can’t hear you with my fingers in my eardrums
You can’t catch someone who relies on you
I can’t fear what I’ve never experienced
