Radiohead Lyrics

Somebody

I made one true day
I may buy you all the things you need
and sleep with you and call you names

but deep down inside
grab a apple on a naked tree
and nothing will ever change

’cause there’s somebody else
though I don’t know who the hell she is
and maybe I love her
but I’m back in my head
I’m somebody else’s buddy prick
won’t somebody just might compromise who I am

there’s somebody there
they were knocking on my forehead
and talking from inside my brain
they’re guiding my thoughts
they’re watching me play with you
and they’ll never go away

’cause there’s somebody else
though I don’t know who the hell she is
and maybe I love her
but I’m back in my head
I’m somebody else’s buddy prick
won’t somebody just might compromise who I am

there’s somebody there
they were knocking on my forehead
and talking from inside my brain
they’re guiding my thoughts
they’re watching me play with you
and they’ll never go away

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: 1990
Found on: 1990 Summer Demo

“Somebody” was recorded and included on a 1990 demo. At the time, the band had stopped using the name On A Friday and had temporarily settled on Shindig, but that was soon dropped and they reverted back to On A Friday before ultimately choosing Radiohead in 1992.

Because Phil Selway was temporarily living in Ireland at the time, the band used a Portastudio 4-track and a drum machine.

    Isn’t this called ‘Somebody Else’?
