Communication: Journal Prompt 24 – Lyrics to short story title

Journal Prompt 24

Pick a song, a favorite or completely at random, and use a line of lyrics as a title of a short story. Write about whatever the lyrics bring to mind.


When I opened my iTunes to choose a song, the last song I listened to was still on the screen so I just went with that song.

The line of lyrics I chose from this song:

“All I wanna know, is that you care, that you love me, that you need me.  Somebody.  Somebody. Somebody.  How can I believe?”

This particular lyric makes me think of people who once in a while need reassurance that they are loved by somebody.

Some days I wonder if anyone has ever loved me.

Here is the full song from Youtube, take a listen at this oldie from 1979.
