Somebody To You - The Vamps ft. Demi Lovato


The Experience: All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah is somebody to you... Love isn't about what I feel or want. Love means two people: me becoming somebody to you...


Music video: The Vamps discover the girls of their dreams... and Demi Lovato sings about the boy of her dreams from the other side of the Atlantic. Simple summer video... but the final shot of the band - as they leave the beach alone - begs the question: did it work out or not? Are they somebody, or nobody?


The Meaning of Somebody To You: The Vamps get a lot of things right in this summer hit, not least of which is reminding us that people - somebody to you - are far more important than money and everything it brings - everybody's trying to be a billionaire but every time I look at you I just don't care. The question is, how deep do the lyrics go? The Vamps could just be saying that hot trumps rich. Or they could be saying that in true love, the person you love is much more important than their money or lips.

Ask yourself: Are you in love with the money? The lips? Or with an actual person?


LYRICS:

[The Vamps]

Yeah you!
Yeah you!

I used to wanna be
Living like there's only me
And now I spend my time
Thinking 'bout a way to get you off my mind
(Yeah you!)

I used to be so tough
Never really gave enough
And then you caught my eye
Giving me the feeling of a lightning strike
(Yeah you!)

Look at me now, I'm falling
I can't even talk, still stuttering
This ground of mine keeps shaking
Oh oh oh, now!

All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you

Everybody's trying to be a billionaire
But every time I look at you I just don't care
Cause all I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
(Yeah you!)

[Demi Lovato]

I used to ride around
I didn't wanna settle down
But now I wake each day
Looking for a way that I can see your face
(Yeah you!)

I've got your photograph
But baby I need more than that
I need to know your lips
Nothing ever mattered to me more than this
(Yeah you!)

[The Vamps]

Look at me now, I'm falling
I can't even talk, still stuttering
This ground of mine keeps shaking
Oh oh oh, now!

All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you

Everybody's trying to be a billionaire
But every time I look at you I just don't care
Cause all I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
(Yeah you!)

Look at me now, I'm falling
I can't even talk, still stuttering
All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah you!)

All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
(Yeah you!)

All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
All I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
(Yeah you!)

Everybody's trying to be a billionaire
But every time I look at you I just don't care
Cause all I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
(Yeah you!)

Cause all I wanna be, yeah all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you
(Yeah you!)

Yeah you!
