Rock Sunday: Use Somebody by Kings of Leon


Normally, I'd have a J-Rock or J-Pop song in my Sunday posts, like here. But notice the omission of "J-"? Because today I have a song by the American alternative rock band, Kings of Leon!

Use Somebody is the second track from their 2008 album Only by the Night. I don't really remember when or where I first heard this song but I was like "Whoah!" -- great music, great lyrics, great vocals... Needless to say, at that moment, Kings of Leon became my favorite band! They're also one of my inspirations in picking up and playing bass.

 This is one of the first songs I learned to play, and I really felt so excited when I was told we're gonna cover it for the Christmas party! Hmm... Maybe I'm gonna post our video here, but only once I get the good copy from my bandmate.

Okay, here are the video and lyrics for the song.





"USE SOMEBODY"
Kings of Leon


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 make you notice
I hope it's gonna make you notice

Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me, somebody

I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now, I'm ready now
I'm ready now

Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody

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