Nobody

Nobody

Emmylou Harris

Ridin' on her bicycle to school
A little girl out breakin' all the rules
She don't care about the birds and the bees
She's too busy skinnin' both her knees
With the arms of a loving childhood
Wrapped around her
All the wonders of the world surround her
And with the angels up above her soul to keep
In her bed down here below she falls asleep

She don't need nobody
She don't need nobody
She don't need nobody now

All grown up and livin' on her own
She goes to work and then comes home alone
But she believes someday her prince will come
There's a lot of life to go at twenty one
With nothing but her faith in love to guide her
She'll follow the young heart that beats inside her
Walk right through that door and bet it all
Confidant she can take the fall

She's ready for somebody
She's ready for somebody
She's ready for somebody now

As the years go by
The woman's not so sure
She feels an ache inside
That seems to have no cure
How did life get so long
Does no one ever stay
Was the dream of one true love
Just lost along the way
But she believes she has so much to give
Is there any other reason why we live

She stills want somebody
She stills want somebody
She stills want somebody now

Now that little girl is growing old
All of her sad stories have been told
But there are no regrets, she'll place no blame
She knows for everyone it is the same
Even when the well runs dry and the bread's unleavened
And she wonders if there really is a heaven
She finds her way back to that little girl
And wraps her empty arms around the world

She don't need nobody
She don't need nobody
She don't need nobody now
