************************************

/Verse 1/
My head feels tangled up
like the headphones in my pocket
Two words and you got me
Two nights and you told me that

/Verse2/
Once the time is counting down,
it's impossible to stop it
Three words that we need to save
Three weeks till you move away

/Pre-Chorus 1/
So go, go oh oh oh oh oh
Your heart has to be followed
Woah oh oh oh oh oh oh

/Chorus 1/
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
So please, be somebody with me

/Verse 3/
Piles of magazines left from two months ago
I'm clinging to old news
Memories I'm scared to loose

/Verse 4/
Now I find reminders down the sofa and under the bed
Three words could've made you stay
Three words that I left to late

/Pre-Chorus 2/
So go, go oh oh oh oh oh
Your heart has to be followed
Woah oh oh oh oh oh

/Chorus 2/
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
So please, be somebody with me

/Bridge/
If you feel like running
The grass is greener inside your heart
And I'll be there if it falls apart
Love who you're becoming
Sometimes we win but sometimes we fall
Story still remains untold

/Pre-Chorus 3/
So go, go oh oh oh oh oh
Your heart has to be followed
Woah oh oh oh oh oh

/Chorus 3/
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone 
'Cause we (oh oh oh) got a dream (oh oh oh)
Gotta be somebody, be someone
So please, be somebody with me

I did not really understand it. I think it's easier with chords. And i don't have 15 words to write...
