"Somebody" - Depeche Mode for my husband

My husband and I met 15 years ago in Denver - that is a whole other blog post but on this Valentine's Day (and our 4th wedding anniversary no matter what the Bush administration says, we have a marriage license from San Francisco) I want to showcase him and his favorite song that says everything about him and our relationship.
His favorite all time song is "Somebody" by Depeche Mode and if you listen to it, there is so much that says what we all agree with.
To my soul mate, as you read this....I love you.

If you click on the title of this post it will take you to a video for the song and here are the lyrics modified for gay unions instead of the original straight pronouns:

I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who'll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
He'll get my support
He will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general
Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
He'll hear me out
And won't easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact he'll often disagree
But at the end of it all
He will understand me

I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought
With every breath
Someone who'll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don't want to be tied
To anyone's strings
I'm carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I'm asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I'll get away with it
And in a place like this
I'll get away with it
