Boston - Something About You Lyrics




When I was younger I thought I could stand on my own
It wasn't easy, I stood like a man made of stone

But there was something about you
I want you to know
It brought a change over me
It's startin' to show
I've got this feelin' inside
gotta have ya, have ya, ain't no good to hide

It isn't easy
To show what I'm feeling inside, girl
It isn't easy
I know, when you believe in a man like me

When I get angry I say things I don't wanna say
I really mean it, I don't want to leave you this way

I couldn't help my reaction
I want you to know
I lose control over you
I just wantcha to know
Got this feeling inside
gotta have ya, have ya, ain't no good to hide

It isn't easy
To show what I'm feeling inside, girl
It isn't easy
I k now, when you believe in a man like me

But there was something about you
I want you to know
It brought a change over me
It's startin' to show
I got this feelin' inside, gotta have you, have you
Ain't no good to hide.

It isn't easy
To show what I'm feeling inside, girl
It isn't easy
I know, to believe in a man like me
Like me, can'tch see
I gotta gotta have you

But there was something about
Yeah there was something about you.

  33. SuedeStonn

    I've never been much of a Boston fan as they didn't put out much content (I know the story), but "Something About You" is a Top-50 song. As Joe King says its perfectly crafted, but its also got the passion and emotion that puts it over the top and into the greatest of all time.

  34. Walter Mahr

    Favorite Boston song!! Cheers fellow fans!!! 🤘🤘🤘

  35. James Kennedy

    When I was younger / I thought I could stand on my own !!!!!!!!!

  37. johnny zell

    When I was younger I thought I could stand on my own
    It wasn't easy, I stood like a man made of stone
    But there was something about you (I want you to know)
    It brought a change over me (it's starting to show)
    I've got this feeling inside
    Got to have you, have you
    Ain't no good to hide
    It isn't easy to show
    What I'm feeling inside, girl
    It isn't easy, I know
    When you believe in a man like me
    When I get angry I say things I don't want to say
    I really mean it, I don't want to leave you this way
    I couldn't help my reaction (I want you to know)
    I lose control over you (I just want you to know)
    I've got this feeling inside,
    I got to have you, have you
    Ain't no good to hide
    It isn't easy to show
    What I'm feeling inside, girl
    It isn't easy, I know
    When you believe in a man like me
    But there was something about you (I want you to know)
    It brought a change over me (it's starting to show)
    I've got this feeling inside,
    Got to have you, have you,
    Ain't no good to hide
    It isn't easy to show
    What I'm feeling inside, girl
    It isn't easy, I know
    To believe in a man like me, like me
    Can't you see
    I've gotta, gotta have you
    But there was something about you
    Yeah, there was something about you

    Pete M

  44. bostonwhofan

    I'm pretty sure this is the greatest band from Swampscott, Massachusetts ever! I grew up in Lynn which borders with Swampscott. About 10 miles north of Boston. Boston's debut album is a masterpiece!

    The Grim Show

    no. there from Boston. believe it. (srry if im wrong, dont correct me, i want it to be true.)

    Pete M

    As is their 2nd

  45. BreAnna Culver

    What’s crazy is my dad jammed to this album as a teen, and all those years later so did I!!!

  46. Andrew Polkowski

    The Great Rock Music Renaissance of the 1970s / 80s and a great time to grow up in America. Thank you Lord God of The Universe for the harmony in the air and wishing the kids of Future Generations have it.

  47. monolocoful

    85 putos dont like this song. they are in the wrong channel. they like justin bieber.

    strom hd ilegal

  48. Jim Oberstadt

    The intro sounds a lot like Gimme Shelter by the Rolling Stones.

  49. Karlene Stinson

    Not a fan of the city because I'm from Pittsburgh but......LOVE the band Boston! Wow does this song take me back to my young carefree days. 👍😊🌈🌻

  50. James Kennedy

  53. NM156

    I was 10 when I bought this album, and this song is still my FAVORITE Boston song! Can't help but get in a good mood listening to it, something music today is REALLY lacking

  54. igman66

    awesome band

  55. Pim Slickin

    This is my cats favorite song. Everytime I whistle this tune she runs up to me purring.
    Literal pussy magnet.

  56. fscott0863

    I am trying to figure out why 85 people gave this a thumbs down?

  57. Gustavo Santos

    i love this album!

  58. ZACHARY SCHMIDT-GILLIAM

    This song is amazing!!!

  59. Kevin Tyler

    Timeless

  60. Clifford Anello

    Saw them in '78 in Hollywood, FL, and they were bad ass. I'm from Acton, Ma., 32 mi. west of Boston, so you know I love them.

  61. 82706527

    TS's bass lines are so goddamn tasty!!!

  62. cerealkiller96

    The reason I like this song is because it's inspiring. This is for anyone who has ever done anything difficult in life.

  63. carysatch

    THE ultimately completely classic rock song of ALL time!!! 🎸💞😎

  64. Marcelo Ramos Brandão

    Meu Deus, que música linda!!! Boston,... Eis aí uma banda que merecia muito, mas, muito mais do que recebeu!

  65. oakeysmokey

    this is one of the best rock albums of all time
    8 songs, not one dud, not one song that is not iconic on some level.

    Pete M

    Always thought so. EVERY track still gets radio play. What other album can make that claim?

  66. Cameron Shapiro

    His timing and phrasing is genius and perfectly executed, Brad delp was brushed over, few compare to his modern talent, Michael Jackson is one, musically he’s like Sinatra, he was the best

  67. dan poirier

    piercing lead vocals Delp...background harmonizing...crackin Boston

  68. Iconoclastic

    BOSTON RULES.

  69. James Kennedy

    I was seventeen.......

  70. The XRoyalProX

    Sent this to a girl that I used to talk to, she told me how much she liked this song even though she wasn’t the type of girl to ever like a song like this...

  71. Dino Morell

    00:01-00:27 best part.Very hypnotizing intro.

  72. Denise Hedden

    I love These Guys

  73. Popi

    I cannot believe anyone would give a thumbs down on this ! Lol

  74. Jon Elam

    If you listen to the demo verison on this song.. (look up boston found in a trashcan---seriously thats the search, I dont have the link) you'll hear the orignal version of it. The final version of it, the one on the record, the vocals change, the arrangement slightly changes. The final version sounds more "70's" than the original.

  75. Ding Bat

    If your listening to this now and truly smiling then your still alive. Time is tricky and fools you to believe years are the shackles that bind you but there truth your still the you you were then and will be till the end so smile were all going to party together !!! If say soon but time is irrelevant just know the feeling inside this is proof. Party on friends I can't wait to meet you all !!!!

  76. Angela

    To each their own, but I can't understand how anyone would give this a thumbs down!

  77. Lionel Villahermosa

    Excellent beautiful inmortal songs

  78. Jeremy Coffman

    That intro tho

  79. michael sinard

    I have the sheet music Columbia published book for their first album. This song is in E major, but the sheet music is in F major. They performed one year ago at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Their rock and roll has emotional drive. Love to jam/play guitar to their songs.

  80. James Kennedy

    Times of great music/ unlike these days.....

  81. erik von helms

    This song kicks ass, always has always will!

  82. SorrowCat

    Boston > Everything

  83. Owen Quinn

  84. Johnny Pimpinz

    It ain't so easy to show
    What I'm feeling inside girl
    It ain't so easy I know
    To believe in a man like me...




    But there was something about
