Branigan, Laura - I Found Someone Lyrics




Don't you know
So many things they come and go
Like your words that once rang true
Just like the love I thought I found in you
And I remember the thunder
Talkin' about that fire in your eyes
But you walked away when I needed you most
And maybe baby maybe baby

I found someone to take away the heartache
To take away the loneliness
I've been feeling since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

Dry your eyes
I never could bear to see you cry
Someday your love will shine through
And show you the feelings you never really knew
Baby don't you lose that thunder
Talkin' about that fire in your eyes
You're looking at me but you still don't believe
And maybe baby maybe baby

I found someone to take away the heartache
To take away the loneliness
I've been livin' with since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

Too long on the border line
Wonderin' if your love was really mine
But you left me with open eyes
And now I realize

I found someone to take away the heartache
To take away the loneliness
I've been feeling since you've been gone

I found someone to take away the heartache
To take away the loneliness
I've been livin' with since you've been gone
Since you've been gone
Since you've been gone

Branigan, Laura I Found Someone Comments
  1. nu shooz

    Laura or cher

  2. Loretta VaunBruan

    I will always feel that this is the best version, she put real emotion into her songs; something other singers only dream about.

  3. Константин Савельев

    Супер!!!

  4. FRANCISCO JIMENEZ

    Branigan's version is the original, but I think Cher's is the best, Cher puts more feeling to the song.

    Stewie dogg

    Sorry but Laura had a wider vocal range than cher. You can hear it in all of her songs. This version has more emotion than cher's version. Chers vocals sound a little flat...similar to michael bolton.

    FRANCISCO JIMENEZ

    @Stewie dogg I'm not an expert in singing, but the song is better known in the voice of Cher, it is heard on oldies radios.

    BxGirl Blazin'

    FRANCISCO JIMENEZ nah.

    Eliana

    @Stewie dogg yeah, but all that doesnt matter if the singer is not promoted properly.. I think that also Cher had an emotions... But Cher's emotions are the same in every song - of strong, independed, feministic woman... Laura brought more sweetness and vulnerability to her songs...

  5. slick jumped over the lazy dog

    love this song such much better than cherr

  6. Arsen Jaho

    This is the first version that I listened. But I have to admit that cher's version is better.

  7. slick jumped over the lazy dog

    I this better than the cher verson because there is just so much more amotion were as cher is so agressive as those she was going through heartbreak but its just to agresssve and very serfise

    BxGirl Blazin'

    SARAH Hepworth Cher does not show Emotion in her voice.

  8. Thom Alf

    Not going to lie: i like hers and chers version equally. RIP Laura

  9. Romani Gypsy

    Laura branigan one of the best voices. Sad she pass away

  10. Mirjana Jelicic

  13. Bill C

    I never knew she originally sang this song...

  14. Tshepo Motlaesi

    This kind of music has a strong message, one can leave you and all of a sudden you get the best.....don't hang much to the past because it has nothing new to offer.....enjoy the today.....there will be always that someone that will come along to take away the loliness that was created by someone who did not deserve you in the first place....just move on because it will be a good thing to do.....Happiness counts....

  15. Fran Smith

    LAURA HAD A BEAUTIFUL VOICE. BUT BETTER THAN CHER. NEVER! MY OPINION.

  16. Char Curib

    Excellent! as always IDOL Laura Branigan

  17. Unleashedrap

    #queenofpop

  18. Paul Jamieson

    💙💙💙💙💙💙💙

  19. Илья Я.

    the melody at the beginning and outro fade out is amazing. there is so much potential to make a mind blowing song out of it. if i only knew how to skillfully extend and enhance it so it doesnt become boring and repetitive

  20. Liane Barrett

    Great song from Laura this video is odd.

    Luis Enrique Perez

    These are clips puts together from videos of her other songs.

  21. brittany michelle

    It's always baffling when a star records a song, it's not promoted, then there's no mention when someone else has a hit version within a few years. Gladys Knight was not happy that Bette Midler's version of "Wind Beneath My Wings" was such a hit when hers was not(it was originally recorded by someone else as a country song, but still). When Whitney Houston had a smash hit with "The Greatest Love of All," I remember hearing zero times that George Benson had cut that side seven years before. I remember hearing once when Cher's version of this came out that Laura Branigan had cut this side, then I heard years later that it had never been recorded before Cher's version...

  22. Shore Design

    Laura is forever the greatest women singer ever ... I loved her

  23. 10000liverpool

    sounds way better than the cher version

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @alexe. The only wrong one here is your dumb ass.

  24. Crazy Talk

    Michael Boltons version is best.

  25. Grabbed You By The Pussy

    Cher can only dream that she had a voice like Laura!

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @streetsjr44 LOL, dumb shit.

    alexe.

    Harry Williams Cher’s version has more vocal runs. she made it her own. plus the instrumentation in her version is much better

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @alexe. No, moron. Take your Cher goggles off.

    Leo Sarkisian

    Did you hear Cher sing this song live? No? So then shut up!

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @Leo Sarkisian Yeah I have, and it sounded like SHIT compared to Laura, dumb ass.

  26. Kimberly Warrlock

    Cher sucks Laura is way better

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @alexe. Lol just stop you ugly inbred looking bitch. You are wrong.

  27. Gordon M

    Beautiful singer. Michael Bolton wrote this.. So sad that Laura died.

    Unleashedrap

    Yes😥💔

    mwduck

    She was way underappreciated

    Unleashedrap

    @mwduck *underrated

    mwduck

    @UnleashedrapThat, too.

  28. Joseph Clark

    Laura Branigan RIP great voice wonderful talent.

  29. Elsie Hendricks

    love her. she is forever Young in spirit world.

  30. A Penandroll

    she went to soon.....she had so much more to give...love this lady...a dream of a woman

    Bonus Baby

    Laura Branigan was criminally underrated. She should have had a string of hits stretching halfway to the damn moon. Some of it was because she was not considered "hollywood beautiful"...But I found her absolutely gorgeous & extremely sexy without having to show everything. The only thing sadder than her passing is that she will probably be forgotten & never get the recognition she deserves.

    Eliana

    @Bonus Baby she was definitely much more beautiful naturally than Cher, for exampe, who underwent gazillions of plastic surgeries to create hersrlf a "perfect and forever young looks", (still, I think she was much prettier before them) and Madonna, who was simply plain (both physically and vocally) and made it to the top by sleeping around and behaving provocative (she had a goon songs, though, during the 80's and early 90's). But Laura... She should have been in their league, an international superstar with plenty of hits and shows. Shame on her label, management, MTV, and all those who decided for us that we have to stick on with gimmicks, pornography and glossy emptiness...

  31. Juan Dilver Cornejo Coa

    Hermosa canción. más hermosa la cantante, un ángel que ahora está en el cielo... Fiel expresión de mi época, años 80´...

    Juan Rios

    Juan Dilver Cornejo Coa totalmente de acuerdo contigo..Fueron mis mejores epocas los 80's tambien

  32. David Marino

    Great version but chers has more punch to it and an overall better production a better sound but still love this

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    Laura's sounds far better than Cher's. Cher's lacks the emotion with her deep hoarse voice. Not good.

    alexe.

    @Grabbed You By The Pussy wrong

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @alexe. WRONG. The only wrong one here is your dumb ass. Laura's is better than Cher's. Laura also has a better voice than Cher, you idiot.

  33. Juanito I. M.

    She doesn't have the power of Cher's version... It's good but not enough....Cher is better

    Eliana

    @Bonus Baby Cher does have powerfull voice, thats no one can deny. But it lacks vulnerability and tenderness, that Laura had. Her voice fits her persona perfectly - strong. Cher indeed is very strong and I'd say strict person. Maybe these qualities helped her to stay on top for 6 decades...

    Jason Strader

    @Eliana I agree, hate to say this because I like both Cher and Laura. However, Laura could sing Cher under the table. Laura's vocal range is far greater than Cher's. It would be a close one, but I think Laura would come out on top.

    Eliana

    @Jason Strader unfortunately or fortunatelly, Laura didnt have the most important feature for success in show business - ambitions, self center and "diva" attitude. What Madonna or Cher always had. She also didnt have a husband producer, who could have made her great star, like Celine Dion, for example. Too bad, that such a talented, authentic, charismatic artist as Laura hadn't realized even tenth of her potential(((

    alexe.

    @Jason Strader then explain why, unlike Cher, Laura didn't showcase that "far greater" vocal range?

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @alexe. LOL! Your ugly inbred looking ass again. Just stop talking you dumb shit. Laura HAS showcased her far greater vocal range. Have you heard her songs; Gloria, Solitaire, How am I supposed to live with you, Especially her singing "POWER OF LOVE"? Look up Laura Branigan singing "Power of Love". DO IT. Educate yourself before talking you moron.

  34. Antoinette Bradley

    Laura is phenomenal....

  35. Natacha Briceño

    I lovet always at Laura Branigan my favourite Singer

  36. daveheel

    i didn't know laura sang this first. i do like her vocals. cher's works better as a pop song though production may be the reason for that.

  37. Robert Werynski

    Laura did an amazing job on this. People who say it sounds cheap get better ears. Cher's voice in this song when she sang it sounded like a dying whale. Not to be rude. But Laura added emotion and emotion is an important thing in music. Laura did a much better job.

    Daz Burnside

    The composition is better on Cher’s version

    Eliana

    @Grabbed You By The Pussy totally agree. Her label was lame and caused more damage than good. Its only her incredible talent and sence of music that let her stay on top for some time. But in some point, unfortunately, it wasnt enough, and she needed a little push from smart management. Sadly, she didn't find it...

    康嘉宜

    totally agree~

    Sophie B

    The reason Cher's version was more popular was because she (or whoever advised her) simplified and commercialised the melody.

    She made it more "catchy" and easier to sing along to.

    In terms of the sheer quality of the voice and the range of emotions displayed, however, this is better.

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @streetsjr44 No, fool.

  38. J S

    Cher did a way better version of this song dont get me wrong Laura did a good job i just dont think its fits her as well as it did for Cher

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    Cher's version sucks. This song is purely Laura Branigan, Laura has the emotion in her voice that Cher wishes she had.

    Eliana

    @Grabbed You By The Pussy I disagree. Cher does have an emotion - the same emotion that always, in all her songs - the one of strong, feministic woman, who doesn't give a f***k about anything or anyone and does what she wants. Laura is quite an opposite.

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @Eliana Cher doesn't have emotion in her voice. She just shouts the songs she sings.

  39. paul gibson

    both hers and Cher's rock Bolton's version is different hell I like all the versions 😀

  40. scalyface

    Michael Bolton wrote this and his version is better than this. However, Cher's version is better than both by miles.

    claus stimpfig

    lauras the best version

    tanner1ie

    Well (according to Wikipedia at least) it was specifically, " written and composed FOR Laura Branigan by Michael Bolton and Touch keyboardist Mark Mangold." :) .

    Ultraaman Lustral

    Yeah sorry. I way don't agree. I like Cher's version for its power but this one has more feeling.

    horrorflickguy

    @Ultraaman Lustral I agree. Cher has a distinctive voice. There's no mistaking who she is when one of her songs start playing. However, if she tries to sing pass that half an octave range that she has, she ends up doing that weird billy goat thing.

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @Jacob Skinner You sound like a whiney little cry baby. Go play in traffic you sook.

  41. Leandro Medina

    Don't you know
    So many things they come and go

  42. rawn4203

    Both versions are good but gotta go with the Cher version. I didnt even know cher did a remake of this one.

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    This version is best. Cher sounds like a dying cow singing this song.

    BxGirl Blazin'

    rawn4203
    Bc she never gave credit to Branigan and Michael Bolton.

  43. Mary Cope

    So much better than Cher's version.... Of course I'm know fan of hers. 〽️

    Sean Roach

    Mary Cope *No

  44. Camila Ailén

    I like Cher

  45. jj Tyson

    HQ my arse

  46. Ray Bailey

    Lots better than Cher's version in my opinion I love anything Laura Branigan sang

    BxGirl Blazin'

    Ray Bailey Cher is an absolute nut job. She’s an egotistical maniac. I like this version better.

  47. pietro5000pp

    Great song!

  48. Nostal Jack

    This wasn't for her - plain and simple. Her vocal isn't the greatest here. She did a FAR better job on "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You". The production here is just wretched and her producers didn't have a clue what to do with this. Turns out Cher was the right vocalist for this and Bolton was the man to produce. He produced it as a Rock tune and Branigan's producers added silly synth textures that just don't belong. This was an extremely minor chart entry (#90) and justifiably so.

    Nostal Jack

    +Vinicius PF In my opinion, Laura's just too stately here. She doesn't really let go like she could. Cher does and it benefitted the tune. Most often, Laura's production let her down. They got cheesy with the ridiculous synths and bad drum machines. No different here. "Power of Love" suffered from this too.

    Andrew Shearin

    There's a live one that's much better than this.

    Andrew Shearin

    I like Cher's version more by the way.

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    Laura Branigan sings this best.

    claus stimpfig

    no ist lauras Version which [email protected] Shearin

  49. 80s guru

    I like Cher too,listening to them both over and over again back in the day and I'd have to say Cher could have used some music lessons from Laura,a whole other level was Branigans voice on.

  50. Michael Mathuba

    What a hit,miss you Laura but with your music you are with me all the time

  51. HUGUINI

    I think this Version is the best of the 3. Her Voice and the Passion she displays are beautiful

  52. Gambler77713

    I like Cher's remake and also Laura's.  Laura I'm betting needed no auto-tuning, Cher I'm willing to bet needed a little help.

    Dave S.

    Well this song was written for her originally by Michael Bolton along with a few others. Cher was a cover although charted better. Personally I like this version better.

    Jason Marcel

    When you listen to the Cher version, it's clear she needs no auto-tuning whatsoever. Cher was at in the prime of her power as a singer when she recorded this. It's only been in the last 15 years that they've auto-tuned the shit out of her voice, which is a shame. But the work she did in the 80's and early 90's in my mind is the best, most arresting stuff she ever did. 

    Victor R.

    +Jason Marcel I also like the rock material so much better than her dance stuff, If I could Turn Back Time,.Save Up All Your Tears, or this are amazing songs/vocals.

    alexe.

    Cher never needed autotune tbh. I don't even think they intended Believe to be such a huge hit

  53. bonnie bianco

    this is a diamond compared to the turd that is the cher version . laura has the voice and emotion . 

    alexe.

    uhhh Cher performed so much better in her version. better vocal runs, better arrangement

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    @alexe. Lol, you are so stupid. Get your inbred looking ass out of here you ugly troll.

  54. Craig Brown

    My favourite song of hers, like all other versions but her emotion just shines through.

  55. Steve H

    Love this and the Cher version equally. The production on Cher's version has more punch to it (you can hear the Bon Jovi/Sambora influence on hers, quite a bit). But Laura has a lot of emotion in her voice. Awesome.

    Nostal Jack

    +Branigan4ever Laura can do no wrong in your eyes and that's fine. You can enjoy her without needlessly and inaccurately slamming Cher in the process. Cher's career began well before Laura's and she knew success decades earlier. She continued to be successful into the late 90's musically. By the unfortunate end of Laura's life, she was no longer musically relevant. Laura only had a few bonafide hits. Cher has had dozens. Cher has been able to sing for ages so I disagree with you there too.

    Steve H

    +Nostril Jacker Hi Nostril Jacker, I didn't slam Cher nor Laura. I complimented both versions, as I like each version and artist on their own merits. Was your post for me or the person below?
    --edit-- Oops! Sorry, I see it was not meant for me. Cheers!

    Nostal Jack

    @Steve H I tagged @*****.  It wasn't intended for you.

    김정태

    Couldn't have said it better myself

    Stewie dogg

    @Nostal Jack Laura's career could have easily lasted as long as Chers or anyone's elses career for that matter. But unfortunately, Laura left the music industry for a while to take care of her husband who had gotten cancer (and died a few years after.) It took years for her to move on before deciding to return and record music again but unfortunately, she passed away before she could regain her career. Laura had a wider vocal range than Cher and I like this version better. It has more emotion, you can feel it in her voice.

  56. Susan Szabo

    Cher sings this the best!!!!!

    Grabbed You By The Pussy

    Nope Laura does.

  57. Barbara Lauro

    She's not cher but she's laura branigan!

  58. Valdoran

    what are u talknig about?sorry but i dont know the story u say.....

  59. Laura Branigan Forever - RunAndPlay

    This arrangement was too fast. I wish she'd had another pass at it, when she was more established. More power to choose. Atlantic tanked this, and Laura had to watch a real music company give it treatment, and have a hit. Something she was learning to get used to. Though it still broke her heart.

    Eliana

    Why the hell didn't she left them???

    Do you know, how Laura reacted when she heard her song in Cher's rendition? Did it really broke her heart?

  60. Sagittariustsai

    Luv her!

  61. Robert Pereira

    Beautiful!
