I'm Looking for Someone to Love
Buddy Holly Lyrics


Stayin' at home waitin' for you
Just won't get it 'cause you say we're through

I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here my baby I don't care
Because I'm lookin' for someone to love

Playin' the field all day long
Since I found out that I was wronged

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here my baby I don't care
'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

Caught myself thinkin' of you
You can't love me and another one too

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
Yeh I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here my baby I don't care
'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love

Drunk man, street car
Foot slipped, there you are

Well I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
Well if you're not here my baby I don't care
'Cause I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love
I'm lookin' for someone to love

'Drunk man, street car; foot slipped, there you are now'...
One of the their best songs, but then again, the Crickets never had a bad song!!!

Jared Tomlin

Never a bad song, that's why Buddy will always be my favorite!

His brother Travis wrote that line of the song

Shankill road Peace line

He wrote this while travelling to studio to record that il be the day and his brother gave him that line which was something their mother used to say. Watch documentary and Gary and Roma tollett explained the story .

greil marcus: There’s the lack of care in the singer’s plea, the plea of someone looking for love, bereft, alone, but also cruising, not in any hurry, laughing at himself—and it’s the lack of care that makes the room in the song, room in its story, in its heart, room, in this case, for the cool walk of the last verse, which turns out to be as complete a definition of rock ’n’ roll as Holly’s guitar solos, the verse that was nothing but a Holly family saying, which here seems a Zen koan, a frontier password, and lines left out of “Not Fade Away” all at once: “Drunk man / Street car / Foot slip / There you are.”

Cat McNichol

Great song that I had on an original EP, along with Not Fade Away, Oh Boy and That'll Be the Day.  Does it get any better than that?  I don't think so.

What a fine guitar player he was.

Buddy Holly was well ahead of time in his music.Ive been an avid fan of his music, for over 50 years now, and I'm still drawn to The Chirpin Crickets L.P. of which my late brother owned, what fantastic arrangements there were on that Album, all those years ago, absolutely "BRILL" R.I.P.

THIS SONG SHOWS JUST HOW BUDDY'S GUITAR PLAYING/STYLE SOMETIMES GETS OVERLOOKED FOR HIS SINGING/SONGWRITING BUT HE WAS A WICKED GUITARIST ORIGINAL STYLE/SOUND

Aléxandros Hispanikós

james lindstrom He was good indeed. Unique mainly cause he tended to use the same type of licks and strumming patterns that at list made his sound distinctive......especially that clean, jangling twang on his Stratocaster!
