Hyman, Phyllis - Let Somebody Love You Lyrics




You been lost inside yourself left your feelings on the shelf
For so long second nature now
You're afraid of promises
You never let a stranger in your wondering arms
Someone worth your down
Anything that time might change you will eventually
Swear that love will never be sincere
Given all just half a chance, keep an open heart
You can't be happy the way you are

You should let somebody love you
Let a true love find you
Let somebody love you
It's not too hard to do if you try
Ooh, if you try

Your desires need a home
They will just wait there alone
Without someone you can share them with
Why put on that same old act
Face up to the natural fact
That everyone needs some love to live
You're not fooling anyone saying you're complete
You're only half of what you need to be
Given all just half a chance, keep an open heart
You can't be happy the way you are

You should let somebody love you
Let a true love find you
Let somebody love you
It's not too hard to do if you try

(You must, you must)
Let somebody love you

(You must, you must)
You should let somebody love you
Ooh, let a true love find you
Come on and let somebody love you
It's not too hard to do if you try

(You must, you must)
Let somebody love you
You got to let a true love find you
Oh, let somebody love ya
It's not so hard to do if you try

(You must, you must)
Let somebody love you

    but soon after her death Arista put out a CD of her best work.  They just cared about making money.  He should have supported her in the jazz, r%b arena.  he only cared about POP success.

    @MotownMs ~ I love the vibraphones in the intro; this song always reminds me of lying on the beach in St. Thomas. Long live the memory and artistry of Phyllis Hyman!

  23. port2344chester

    Quality trax that takes you on that time machine journey!
    I fell in love with Phyllis Hyman from day 1... mu family members were so lucky to share some down time with this LEGEND..during may of her concerts.... my sister & aunts followed her around the N.Y.C jazz/rb scene. Phyllis would always come over & same hello & during the Jackie Robinson jazz fest my sister hooked up some fried chicken & im sure sweet potato pie & of course Phyllis saw them came over & stated to eat with my family! R.I.P

  24. llehcin

    One of my favs too. I bet she did this in 1 take.

  25. Queen of the Grandenites

    the strings sound like Keisha Cole may have sampled it for her "Sent From Up Above."

    Angel Johnson

    Queen of the Grandenites yes beautiful

  26. akaziaj

    Great song from the incomparable "Pepper H".

    Stormy D.

    This reminds me....I saw her pull some lemon pepper out her purse. Told her I hated that stuff. I think she had a cutlery knife and all kinds of other on-the-go stuff in that bag . Probably a can of unleaded gas in case they ran out too. The best was when she stopped her limo in front of the Fox Theatre in Detroit and had the driver run in the pizza joint for a stick of butter. I asked what the H she was doing and she flung the door open and asked if I was coming over to the hotel, not before inquiring if the sound was perfect during her show though.
