Bareilles, Sara - Someone Who Loves Me Lyrics




Could I rest here for a while
Near that medal 'round your neck
St. Jude's wearing a smile
He wouldn't mind I bet
I can't go face the world
My bones won't hold me up
So tell the saint of lost souls where to find me
Softly sleeping here in the deep end of someone who loves me

You'll let me cry it out
Because you know that sometimes I can't stop and
Still I'm seeking how
To stand up when the bottom drops
The weight of all the world
Can blind me to its beauty
But every time I need to be reminded
I know you will and say you're still someone who loves me

I try to push it down but it comes back faster and harder
Tides are changing on a dime and I'm just trying to keep my head above the water...

Surrender's just a word
Till you try it out
And see how hard it is to hurt
With someone else around
I'm the worst I've ever been
Afraid of almost everything
The skies are clear but storms are always comin'
Your gift to me
Is just to be
Bracing for the winds I always summon
My home, my heart
Thank God you are
Someone who loves me

    Songwriters: Sara Bareilles

  2. NX74656CUBE

    Perfect!

  3. Darlene McHenry

    Sara has the voice of an angel!

  4. Aleyna Çiftçi

    Perfection. Her voice, her skill of song-writing, her lyrics, the melody. It's just perfect. She's such a talented woman. <3

  5. usagicassidy

    I’ve been a fan of Sara’s for over 15 years, and I just didn’t think at this point I’d be “surprised” by her. When I got to this track, I sobbed. It is one of the best songs I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing, and I love that it’s kind of shown both hers and my growth as humans. I used to love the sad ballads of unrequited love that she wrote, I mean who doesn’t love Gravity, but this is a hopeful and optimistic song shrouded in the weight of your demons. This is a song about someone who feels broken, who feels like getting out of bed sometimes is a struggle, but that they have the warmth and compassion and trust of someone who will be there to support them and even though I feel that way but don’t have someone in my life to support me, I feel comforted just knowing that someone out there feels the same way, and is taken care of. It’s a weird comfort and maybe the best song I’ve ever heard.

  6. Yawpism

    I wasn't expecting to sob today. Thank you for such a beautiful song!

  7. Cursed Maiden

    Cant wait to see her on October 5th 😍😍😍

    Tom Sturgis

    Election Day in Raleigh on 08Oct and I’ll be working (sadly) until 9PM.

  8. Nick Caffrey

    All by herself, Sara is becoming an entire genre. Her music and voice are peerless.

  10. Kristin TAYLOR

    Beautiful♡♡♡

  11. Gilbert Quintana

    I was so excited when this album came out, I gave it the old high school-style listen. Waited till everyone was asleep, turned the lights out, put my headphones in and just listened. When I got to the end of this song, I just remember sitting on my couch, sobbing. At the people in my life the lyrics remind me of, of the beautiful melody and music, and Sara's immense gift. This entire album is gorgeous piece of art. She keeps getting better.

  12. K M

    Jesus loves me. ♡ He loves you too. Everyone.

  13. Kyrel Rosli

    Listening to this at 2:40 am

  14. Kristina Darling

    Sara sweet girl.

  15. Whosyourdoctor10

    St. Jude is the patron saint of lost causes...

    Enribel Blanco

    She thinks of her as a lost cause but her lover sees everything beautiful in her and she's deeply thankful of it.

  16. Queen Canis Lupus of The Wolf Pack

    And God loves Me!!! Hahahahahaha!!! Yesssss!!!! The Lord has got me on the outside looking at it all and laughing!!! What a fiasco!!! Hahahahaha!!! Love you!!

  17. Erica Horne

    She just gets it. What I really understand is that we are all just people trying to be happy. We think fame and fortune will make us happy but real musicians, artists, writers, are the beautifully broken ones. We are the ones who are brave enough to share our pain with the world. I am proud to be in that category. I feel your pain, I understand it, you are not alone. Don't ever give up. You are loved. Thank you for being brave Sara.

  18. Nadia Elsa

    uhhh sooo beautiful ❤️

  19. Kathie Neff

    No words. Perfection.

  20. Angela Arnold-Cruz

    I'm the worst I've ever been
    Afraid of almost everything
    The skies are clear but storms are always comin. . .

  21. Noviana Herawati

    😭😭😭😭😭im crying too..

  22. G M

    Such a beautiful song. ❤️ Makes me cry every time lol i cant help it.

  23. Adi Amirudin

    I like this song but I don't have anyone to sing this song to, it wreck me down a little bit. I want someone who loves me too, why can't I? ah this is miserable.

  24. Kayla Watt

    For my husband. For my soon to be lost love.

  25. alfa

    Soo jason mraz's voice heard there.

    Lovely. Warm.

    Myeonie Cotton

    I heard it too🤔

  26. Cindy Marie

    Oh my god, @sarabareilles thank you so much for this beautiful rendering of the exact words in my heart at exactly the right time in my life! I believe you are my sister & kindred spirit in this universe. ❤

  27. Lisa Rainbird

    Such a beautiful, clear voice full of emotion without artifice. Thank God for Sara!

  28. Mark Ups

    I'm 24 but this is kind of music I like.. Perfect!

    Anastacia Wowor

    Mark Ups me too

  29. tsteele65

    The live version with the Milk Carton Kids is even better.

  30. kevinlortie54

    Your fame and songs come @ a high price, I’m sure of that.

  31. Meleika

    "I can't go face the world,
    My bones won't hold me up"


    I cannot.... too many feels Sara!!

  32. Meleika

    Oh my god.
    This makes me feel extremely emotional and vulnerable. OH MY GOD.
    MY HEART. Soothing my anxiety yet i'm fully about to cry.

  33. SLBlogger Beasty

    beautiful

  34. Michelle Contois

    I wonder how many HSP’s relate deeply to this beautiful song.

  35. Robert Pearson

    Gorgeous🎶🎶🎶✌️

  37. Fatima Zahra

    This song is like a giant warm hug

  38. PennyLane2102

    I heard her album litterally in the Amidst Of Chaos of my life... and thank you Sara.. you saved me!

  39. Phil Bates

    One of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Made me cry 😄❤️☯️🙏

  40. macksiangco

    In love with the Album #AmidstTheChaos and this is one of my favorites ❤️❤️❤️

  41. Enrique Von Quin

    You are a goddess and a queen! Your music is so criminally underrated, it's ridiculous!

  42. Jim downey

    Sara had me at “sunburnt skin and handlebars.” An estimable woman.

    DOG DAYS ARE OVER [TheSchwaWasntHere]

    Jim downey A reference to Once Upon Another Time! :0

  43. brandy hazlett

    Wow this song is really deep Sara Bareilles keep up the amazing work

  44. Gemma Clement

    Thank you so much Sara for this beautiful song. I don't know what it is about this song but it just gave me the courage to come out of the closet to my parents this morning.

  45. Jessica Lawrence

    This song is beautiful and simply put but the lyrics are SO deep and moving! It’s my favorite on the album but not surprisingly not rated so well by critics. Those critics don’t understand how those of us who struggle with depression and anxiety, like myself and others NEED open and honest song writing like this. It is truly helpful to have those around you who love you to help you keep going despite all of it and who do see the best in you, even when you cannot see it yourself. Thanks Sara!

    Patch Dizon

    Listen to ease my mind by ben platt! - they have the same theme and both are so heartwarmingly beautiful.

    Jessica Lawrence

    I love Ben Platt too! Yes they do have similar tones to their voices. I would LOVE to see them do a duet together some day.

  46. Judy Firzlaff

    Amazing!

  47. freebs

    Such an awesome song... what more can I say...

  48. kevinlortie54

    There are so very many faceless someone’s out there who appreciate your works of art (and the price you must pay) and would be happy to help you weather the next storms.

  49. Ben

    Best song on the album by a mile. And that's saying something since so many of them are great.

  50. Whinxie Dixie

    Listen to Orpheus after this song and you'll see a beautiful love story of people seeking comfort and giving comfort through love, support and assurance even though life is giving struggles. 😊
    I just interpret it that way. 😍

    Monique Saunders

    so its miss simone this then orpheus then poetry by dead men then if i cant have you

  51. Ingrid perkusic

    💕... so warm

  52. Wibble Wobble

    What a beautifully gentle song. Its like a perfectly soft, supportive warm hug when you're just done and don't have anything left to give.

  53. Dave C

    That pause after "water" is for all the tears falling to the ground.

  54. Jennifer Leeland

    You sing my heart for me.

  55. Cee E

    Omg my 💓! Lives upto its title ..beautiful ooft 💖💖💖

  56. kevinlortie54

    Yet another lovely duet.

  57. culota

    oh my God this new album is just... heaven's gift to all fans. Sara. You are a blessing.

  58. Lucille Soriano

    She looks like lady gaga 😳

  59. José Luiz Engelke

    To much Agreeable
    To much beautiful
    To much charmy
    To much DIVA
    WHAT A VOICE!

  60. Faith Nester Poltic

    I'm getting The Milk Carton Kids vibes, is this a collab? Either way, you never disappoint <3
    Thank you for painting beautiful pictures with your words, and capturing the most human experiences thru your music. You are a gift.

    Alice SongBird

  61. bouna bouna

    Epic song!!!!! Love, light, and blessings to you all always!!!!!

  63. EMIRIANO ROCHA CLUBEAMIGOS

    one of the best songs in this álbum ... but not so long as the others

  64. Vero Santillan

    Like si llegaste hasta aqui porque lo posteo ana brenda contreras en su igs!!

  65. Santhia Morales

    This song is so real. I think is my favourite love song now

  66. Jim Laguna

    WHO ELSE CRIED?? DON'T TELL ME I'M THE ONLY ONE!??! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  67. Nike Calunsag

    i want you to sing along...so here you go...


    Could I rest here for a while
    Near that medal 'round your neck
    St. Jude's wearing a smile
    He wouldn't mind I bet
    I can't go face the world
    My bones won't hold me up
    So tell the saint of lost souls where to find me
    Softly sleeping here in the deep end of someone who loves me

    You'll let me cry it out
    Because you know that sometimes I can't stop and
    Still I'm seeking how
    To stand up when the bottom drops
    The weight of all the world
    Can blind me to its beauty
    But every time I need to be reminded
    I know you will and say you're still someone who loves me

    I try to push it down but it comes back faster and harder
    Tides are changing on a dime and I'm just trying to keep my head above the water...

    Surrender's just a word
    Till you try it out
    And see how hard it is to hurt
    With someone else around

  83. Andrea Keresh

    Sara & Jason ❤️ those voices, i couldnt ask for more! Beautiful song!

  84. Joana Freitas

    This song is the perfect depiction of the turmoil inside of an insecure, anxious, vulnerable person who decides to trust someone's love. You struggle to allow yourself to be sheltered, cared for and happy but "the skies are clear but storms are always comin’" so you need someone who is "bracing for the winds I always summon".


    Always amazing how Sara captures overwhelming feelings and turns them into heart-healing beautiful music.

    Alice SongBird

    It was like somebody was singing about my depression

    Joana Freitas

    @Eera Rosli it's just too real. Sara is so gifted she can transport reality into her songs and make us feel less alone.

    Joana Freitas

    @Alice SongBird same!

    Adam.J. Raja

    Its a Gift - all of it - l cant Believe how Couragous, kind, Talented & amazing this one women Truly is. Not a bad song here & never a weak Album ever - She writes what she knows & performs like she lives & means every word & Raw Emotion. A Tonic for our pain, a remedy for our Soul. Sara Bareilles Heals the Hurt & allows us to be born again 💎

  85. Inggani Masitha

    I'm in love all over again with her voice, the music, everything.. You will always be my top favorit Sara ❤️
