Lyrics

Someone somewhere’s fallin’ asleep
In a chair in front of the tv
‘Cross town somebody’s
Up and walkin’ the floor at a quarter to three.

In some little corner of the world
A forgotten soul is waitin’ by the phone
And right down the hall someone’s in there feelin’
Like cryin’ ’cause they’re livin’ all alone.

Somebody’s needin’ somebody the way I do
Somebody’s wantin’ somebody they can hold on to
To be loved by somebody that’s the way it should be
Oh, there’s got to be somebody somewhere waitin’ for me.

Late at night it’s lonely and I wonder how I’ll ever get through
There’s got to be somebody somewhere who’s feelin’ it too
Hurtin’ inside, goin’ through the motions, it’s so hard to live
So many feelin’ so lonely when they got so much to give.

Somebody’s needin’ somebody the way I do
Somebody’s wantin’ somebody they can hold on to
To be loved by somebody that’s the way it should be
Oh, there’s got to be somebody somewhere waitin’ for me.

To be loved by somebody that’s the way it should be
Oh, there’s got to be somebody out there waitin’ for me…
