How Do You Love Somebody?

from by Jim Reed



If I’d never left home would we have met
I don’t like looking back, I don’t like regret
Last New Year’s eve my life looked set
But still I hadn’t found you yet
I don’t have money coming out of my ears
All I got on you girl are a couple of years
If you’re looking for someone to ease your fears
Honey, I’m gon’ be right here

How do you love somebody
And not try to change them
How do you love somebody
And stay their friend
How do you love somebody
Who you’re having sex with
How do we love
And pretend
That it won’t end

You might be a Yankee, it don’t bother me
You might be living another reality
All I have is faith that you see what I see
And that’s why it’s so scary
You make me feel clean, you make me feel good
When I talk I feel understood
Any day now it might go wrong, yeah it could
Honey, love burns like firewood

I don’t ever want to stand in your way
God knows you’re smarter than the things I say
God knows we’re not the kind of people that pray
So I’ll see you in hell one day
I love how your eyes shine
I love how your hand fits in mine
You’re pretty good at hitting the ball down the line
Honey I think we’ll be fine
