I've Been Spurred

Paul Westerberg
"Waiting For Somebody"
Listen | Buy

NOTES: In keeping with the I WILL GET ENGAGED IN 2006 EVEN IF IT KILLS ME OR SOMEONE LIKE ME kick, here's a hopelessly hopeful little paen to solitude by the former frontman of one of my adolescently favorite bands, The Replacements.

All my life
Waiting for somebody
Come and take my hand
All my life
Waiting for somebody
Whoa, yeah

Been down so long
Doesnít really matter
This downtown home
Been kicked and Iíve been spurred
You comin' along?
It doesít really matter
I go it alone
Doesnít even hurt

All my life
Waiting for somebody
Whoa, yeah
All my life
Waiting on somebody
Ooh, yeah

Iím waitin' for the day
Waitin' for the day
That you come my way

I know down deep
I made a big decision
I'm going to sleep
I'm going there alone
I know damn well
I'm tired of all this cryin'
On my feet as far as I can tell

I'm waitin' for the day
Waitin' for the day
That you come my way

Somebody
Somebody
Somebody
Somebody

Waitin' for somebody
Waitin' for somebody
I'm waitin' for somebody
All my life

I love this song. It totally reminds me of my freshman year of college. I had the "Singles" poster on my dorm wall. :) I've always kind of thought of it as one of my theme songs, too.
