To Love Somebody [Live][#]
by Janis Joplin



There's a light, a certain kind of light,
Never ever, honey, it never shone on me, no, no.
Babe and I want, honey I want my whole life
To be lived with you, babe,
'Cause all what I want, oh,
Was to be living and loving you.

There's a way, oh everybody say
You can do anything, you can do everything, yeah.
But what good, what good,
Honey, what awfully good can it ever bring
'Cause I ain't got you, honey, my love,
I said and I can't find you baby, but I been lookin' around for you, yeah.

You don't know, you don't know what it's like,
No, you don't, no, no, no, you don't know,
Honey, you don't know what it's like
Oh, to love anybody.
Oh honey, I said I want to talk about holding you now
The way I love you, babe,
And I've been loving you, babe.

In my brain, oh, honey, I can see your face again,
I know, I said I feel like I ought to know my own frame of mind.
Oh, but nobody, nobody has to ever be so goddamn blind,
Honey like I was, honey, I tell you that I was,
I said I know that I was, I was very, very blind.
Oh wo wo, but I'm just a girl,
Can't you just take a look at me and tell,
Tell that I live, honey, and I breathe for you,
Don't you know I do, yeah!

Honey, what good, what good,
Honey, what awfully good could it ever bring
'Cause I can't find you,babe, I can't find you,
Honey, if I ever find you I'll reach out to hold on to you, yeah.
You don't know, you don't know what it's like,
No you don't and you never ever did.
You don't know, you don't know what it's like
Oh, to love anybody.
Oh, honey I've got to talk about it now
The way I tried to love you, baby,
Honey, I just want you to know I tried.

Oh, I know that there's a way
Honey, 'cause everybody came to me one time and they said,
"Baby, you can do anything,
You can do every thing," and I think I can, I said I know I can.
Honey, what good, oh what good,
Honey, what good can it ever bring,
'Cause I ain't got you, you're all I ever wanted,
And I ain't got you, babe, honey and I've looked around.

But you don't know,
You don't know what it's like,
No, you don't and you never never, never.
You don't know, honey,
You don't know what it's like
Oh, to love anybody.
Oh, honey I said I want to talk about it now.

Oh, babe, babe, babe, yeah,
'Cause you don't know,
You don't know what it's like,
No, you don't and you never ever did,
You don't know.
I tried to show you, darling,
I tried to hold you, darling,
But you never ever, no you never ever,
No you never ever, no you never ever,
I know that, you know that
No you never ever, ever, ever,
Oh, let me throw my love,
Throw my love all around you.
