"Nobody Not Really" as written by Alicia J Augello-cook and Taneisha Smith....
Who really cares?
Who really cares?
When I talk?
What I feel?
What I say?

Nobody, not really
Who wants to take
The time to understand?
I would like
Someone to heal me with some empathy

But I can't find
(Nobody, not really)
Maybe I'm invisible to the world
Does anyone in the world even think of me
As more than just a hopeless cause
Maybe the world is not my block
My stoop
My life, my dreams
My anything, anything

Who wants to help?
Momma but she's so tired
Papa but you're not here
I'm alone in a big empty space with
(Nobody, not really)

    General CommentThis song really should open everyone's eyes to the reality that in the end, all you have to survive is yourself, and that if youre not strong enough, that wont help you much, either.

    *Alicia Keys will soon reign as the next Queen of Soul*

    -Probably not your number one fan, but I like you alot *wink*

    General CommentThis song to me sounds like the danger of depression. When someone is in need of help, and no one is around, they feel like they don't belong in this world, and no one really cares. Mama and Papa don't even have the time or will to be concerned. Teenager's athem!

    General CommentThis song is just like "Prelude to a kiss" a window into the personal life of a celebrity. It still gets lonely.
