"Someone's Watching Over Me" as written by and John/dioguardi Shanks....
I found myself today
Oh, I found myself and ran away
But something pulled me back
The voice of reason I forgot I had

All I know is you're not here to say
What you always used to say
But it's written in the sky tonight

So I won't give up, no I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Someone's watching over me

I've seen that ray of light
And it's shining on my destiny
Shining all the time, and I won't be afraid
To follow everywhere it's taking me

All I know is yesterday is gone
And right now I belong
To this moment, to my dreams

So I won't give up, no I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Someone's watching over me

It doesn't matter what people say
And it doesn't matter how long it takes
Believe in yourself and you'll fly high
And it only matters how true you are
Be true to yourself and follow your heart

So I won't give up, no I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe

So I won't give up, no I won't break down
Sooner than it seems life turns around
And I will be strong even if it all goes wrong
When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
Someone's watching over me

Someone's watching over
Someone's watching over
Someone's watching over me
Yeah, oh, oh,
Someone's watching over me

    General CommentI did cry.

    I sang this song at my grade six graduation. Lots of people were crying.. The principal, my MALE teacher. So many people in the audience. I didnt cry on stage, but i did cry.

    General CommentHil's voice is pretty clear and not so computer generated sounding in this song. It's just a song that makes you think about how if even someone you loved is no longer around....you know they and everyone else we always be there watching over you.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite Hilary Duff songs. You rock girlie!

    "So I won't give up
    No I won't break down
    Sooner than it seems life turns around"

    No matter what happens when things are going wrong, You won't give up or break down because sooner than you think, everything will be good again.

    "When I'm standing in the dark I'll still believe
    That someone's watching over
    Someone's watching over
    Someone's watching over me

    Someone's watching over me"

    Even when you think you're alone, You're alone.. But not. Someone out there that loves you is watching over you and will protect you.

    General CommentThis is one of the songs I heard recently (from the movie "Raise Your Voice"). I didn't hear all the lyrics during the movie -- but read it while listening to the song the second time (incidentally, I am listening to it right now, while writing this), and *loved* it.

    This is also a great 'inspiring' addition to my collection. Everyone feels down one time or the other -- and songs like these lift up your mood!

    I think it means that no matter what life gets better sooner than you think and that someone is always watching over you so you don't have to worry about it.

    General CommentI first heard "Someone's Watching Over Me" on a preview for "Raise Your Voice". I think that this song means just to follow your dreams even if you think everything will go wrong, and even if they do, you should still believe that you can achieve it.

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song, it's sad, because it's about someone that's died, someone really important to the person that sang it. but it's a really nice song, with a simple tune. this parts really strong to me
    'So I won't give up
    No I won't break down
    Sooner than it seems life around'
    it's a song with a great moral, and yeah, hilary duff should be looked up to by young girls.
