Lyrics

Katy Perry's version

I'm gonna use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you
Someone like you

Original version

I've been roaming around, always 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 shape the poet and the beat
I hope it's gonna to make you notice
I hope it's going to make you notice

Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me
Somebody
Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me
Somebody

Go and let it out
Go and let it out
Go and let it out
Go and let it out

Someone like you
Somebody
Someone like you
Somebody
Someone like you
Somebody

I've been roaming around, always looking down at all I see
