Hunter Hayes is set to release his fifth single “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me” to country radio. This single will be a follow up to his three consecutive number ones on the charts. Hayes wrote the song with Dave Brainard and Jennifer Zuffineti.
Jason Mraz duets with Hunter on the song. The two men sound very similar vocally, but the pairing works. In fact, the track sounds like it would fit in perfectly on any Jason Mraz record.
The song has a happy go lucky, free and easy feel. You can easily sing along to the “ohh ohh ohhs” with the song flowing out your speakers. But the lyrics could not be anymore different from the feel of the song. “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me” is lyrically not an upbeat tune. It is about someone who is no longer in a relationship, how he misses the person and wishes they could try again. It truly seems “everybody’s got somebody” but him.
"I wish the couple on the corner would just get a room
Seems like everyone around me's on their honeymoon
I'd love to take a pin to a heart-shaped balloon
Everybody's got somebody but me
And I miss you
Without you I just don't fit in
I know we're through
But I'm wishing we could try it again
Yeah, I don't know if I'll ever find another you"
The song has the sound of a hit, possibly being Hayes’ fourth number one.
The track is available on the album Hunter Hayes Encore and at digital retailers everywhere.
