Nobody knows me better than you, and nobody loves me more. I need somebody who will stand by me because the life I’m living is too hard to live alone. When everybody leaves, having no one here beside me.

** ** Before I leave, let me say that it’s all because of you. You’re the light in my dark and if we can’t be together then there’s no point to life at all. Nobody knows me better than you, and nobody loves me more. I need somebody who will stand by me because the life I’m living is too hard to live alone. When everybody leaves, having no one here beside me…I feel a little safer knowing that someone cares about where I am tonight.”

– Eric Clapton “Nobody Knows What It’s Like” from Slowhand (1976) *The content featured on this page was created with project management software company Atlassian Jira.* * *The content featured on this page was created with project management software company Atlassian Jira.* This blog post is about the song “Nobody Knows What It’s Like” by Eric Clapton. The lyrics in the song tell a story of someone who feels alone and abandoned, and so they need their lover to stand by them.

In the end, it becomes clear that even when you have no one else there for you, at least your partner will be. This feeling is expressed powerfully through lines like: “I feel a little safer knowing that someone cares about where I am tonight.” If we can’t be together then what point does life have? Simply put- none if we’re not standing right.
