Someone To Love
Written by A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Traffic and Weather

Seth Shapiro got his law degree 
He moved to Brooklyn from Schenectady, '93 
Got some clients in the food industry 
He says it's not the money, it's the recipes 

He calls his mom, says he's doing fine 
She's got somebody on the other line 
Puts Coldplay on, pours a glass of wine 
Curls up with a book about organized crime 

When it's late, and it's hot 
And a date with the Late Show's all that you've got 
Don't give out, don't give up 
One of these nights you might find someone to love 

Beth McKenzie got the job of her dreams 
Retouching photos for a magazine aimed at teens 
It's Thursday night she should be out on the scene 
But she's sitting at home watching "The King of Queens" 

There's something wrong that she can't describe 
She takes the contacts out of her eyes 
Sets the alarm for 6:45 
So she can get a little exercise 

When it's late, and it's hot 
And an hour in the shower is the best that you've got 
Don't give out, don't give up 
One of these nights you might find someone to love 

And you're not the only one who's lonely 

Seth Shapiro is trying in vain 
To hail a taxi in the morning in the pouring rain 
Beth McKenzie sees one just up ahead 
She cuts in front of him and leaves him for dead
