the song from whence the MSN argument derived...


Being Alive from Stephen Sondheim's Company, 1970

Somebody hold me too close
Somebody hurt me too deep
Somebody sit in my chair
And ruin my sleep
And make me aware of being alive

Somebody need me too much
Somebody know me too well
Somebody pull me up short
And put me through hell
And give me support for being alive
Make me alive
Make me alive
Make me confused
Mock me with praise,
Let me be used
Vary my days,
But alone is alone, not alive.

(Somebody hold me too close
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there
As frightened as you of being alive
Being alive, being alive

Someone you have to let in
Someone whose feelings you spare
Someone who, like it or not
Will want you to share a little, a lot of being alive
Make me alive, make me confused
Mock me with praise, let me be used
Vary my days, but alone is alone, not alive)

Somebody crowd me with love
Somebody force me to care
Somebody make me come through
I'll always be there
As frightened as you to help us survive
Being alive, being alive,
Being alive, being alive.


these are the words off the michael crawford album, which are slightly different to the actual ones. ("somebody" instead of "someone to" in the first two verses, but nothing else) - also, the bracketed section is just because those verses aren't on there, either ;)
