"Somebody" as written by and Robert Ellis/anderson Orrall....
I sit alone
A dark theater watchin' the people go by
Hand in hand
Everybody but me
Oh

I stay behind
Watchin' the credits roll by
Roll roll roll right by me

I know, I won't cry
'Cause there is somebody somebody somebody waitin' for me
Out in the rain

Won't cry
Not tonight
Because there is somebody waitin' for me
Oh yeah

I take a walk
The streets are busy tonight
And I am searching for you
Waiting to brush your shoulder
But I'm alone
I watch the faces roll by
Roll roll roll right by me

But I know, I won't cry
'Cause there's somebody somebody somebody waitin' for me
Out in the rain

Won't
Not tonight
Because there is somebody waitin' for me

How many words will go unspoken
Til I hear knocking upon my door,
I'm losing track of the nights I spend heartbroken
but tonight I know I won't cry no more
Oh

I lie awake
I left the porch light on
I hope it helps you to find your way
Outside
I hear the thunder roll by
Roll roll roll right by me

But I know, I won't cry
'Cause there is somebody somebody somebody waitin' for me
Out in the rain
Not gonna cry tonight
No cause there is somebody waitin' for me
Not gonna cry tonight
No
No no no no
Oh
Not gonna cry
Not tonight cause there is somebody waitin' for me

I stay behind
Watchin' the credits roll by
Roll roll roll right by me

    General Commentthis song's lyrics are by far the best ever. I can totally relate to them, and i'm sure everyone else can too. the lyrics are saying that there's someone out there even though it may not seem like it. we just have to be patient and keep looking and not feel so alone.

    General CommentThis sounds like a song that would be played during movie credits, especially romantic comedies.

    General Commenti'm totally addicted to this song. she has an amazing voice. i love how it's quietly optimistic...even though she's rather depressed about being alone, she knows her "somebody" is out there somewhere, she just has to find him.

    General Commentthis is a song everyone can relate to. we've all walked down the streets feeling like the people passing by could walk right through you. i like the song bc it conveys lonliness but strength to get through it, well, the night atleast. =)

    Lyric CorrectionI sit alone, dark theatre watchin' the people go,
    hand in hand everybody but me.

    Won't cry, not tonight,
    cause there is somebody waiting for me.

    -

    How many words will go unspoken,
    'til I hear knocking upon my door,
    I'm loosing track of the nights I spend heartbroken,
    but tonight I know, I won't cry no more

    they're the correct lyrics otherwise :)
