Lyrics


Words and music by Michelle Malone

Standing in the remnants of a runner
Feeling like I missed the starting gun
How is it that I didn't see it coming?
I stared too long at the sun
Oh how the ashes smolder
and i’m getting older

I just want somebody to love me
I just want somebody to love and to shake it, shake it

Staring at the tree top from the gutter
My heavy heart is keeping me from sleep
I wish that I could butterfly already
You sew it, reap it and weep
Oh how the ashes smolder
and i’m getting older

I just want somebody to love me
I just want somebody to love and to shake it, shake it

shake it, shake it
shake it down, my sweet baby, cmon and shake it

Lying in the middle of the highway
i’m happy that at least i got the chance
i dont want to tell you my life story
or stay too long at the dance

I just want somebody to love me
I just want somebody to love and to shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it
