"Is There Life Out There" as written by and Richard C./longacre Giles....
She married when she was twenty
She thought she was ready
Now she's not so sure
She thought she'd done some living
But now she's just wonderin'
What she's living for
Now she's feeling that there's something more

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin
Is there life out there

She's always lived for tomorrow
She's never learned how
To live for today
She's dyin' to try something foolish
Do something crazy
Or just get away
Something for herself for a change

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin
Is there life out there

There's a place in the sun that she's never been
Where life is fair and time is a friend
Would she do it the same as she did back then
She looks out the window and wonders again

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin
Is there life out there

Is there life out there
So much she hasn't done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She's done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn't want to leave
She's just wonderin
Is there life out there

    General CommentThis sonf means SO much to me. This completely describes my mom and I think of her everytime I hear it. Reba is a phenomonal singer and only she could do this good of a job.

    General CommentThis is by far my most favorite song.. Ever. I can't believe more people haven't commented on it. This song is truely amazing, as is Reba McEntire. Whenever I hear it, many people come to mind, namely my grandmother. I love this song to death.. by far Reba's best!

    General CommentYou don't have to be a housewife to appreciate this. Men also can be in the same situation- Just becuase you leave the house to work doesn't mean you're out there. There could always be something else you can be doing.

    General CommentI really like this song because I found myself in the same situation.

    My boyfriend wanted to get married/have a family and to do that he thought I should drop out of college. I didn't agree and after hearing this song on the way back to school I broke it off with him.

    I also love the music video

    Thank You Reba..haha :)

    General CommentI am fullfilling this one right now. I have gone back to school. It is not that I want to leave my marriage, but that I want to find other life in my working career.

    Just because you are wondering if there is life out there doesn't mean you are looking to leave your marriage/relationship or your job.
