"Is There Anbody Out There" as written by and John Bettis Burt Bacharach....
You can say goodbye
To all the things that you have ever known.
You can say goodbye
And leave behind the life that you have grown.
What's the point
You try to start from scratch
But get let down

You can say goodbye
Just to realise there's no-one left around.
So what am I fighting for.

Tell me
Is there anybody out there
Am I swimming through this empty sea alone
Am I looking for an answer
Or am I trying to find a way to get back home.
Is there anybody out there
Would you hear me if I screamed or if I cried
I'm looking for an answer
And just trying to find a way to survive.

You can live or die
Without the chance to find out what your worth
You can live or die
And never find the one that she'd deserve
You can walk alone
And live behind the shadows in your heart

You can say goodbye
Or live and find out you've been alone right from the start
So what am I fighting for.

Tell me
Is there anybody out there
Am I swimming through this empty sea alone
Am I looking for an answer
Or am I trying to find a way to get back home.
Is there anybody out there
Would you hear me if I screamed or if I cried
I am looking for an answer
And just trying to find a way to survive.

Never thought I would end up all alone
Every day I am feeling further away from home
I can't catch my breath
But I am holding on.

Is there anybody out there
Is this the last time I have to say goodbye
Am I staring at my future
Is it time to take charge of my life

Is there anybody out there
Am I swimming through this empty sea alone
Am I looking for an answer
Or am I trying to find a way to get back home
Is there anybody out there
Would you hear me if I screamed or if I cried
I am looking for an answer
And just trying to find a way to survive
A way to survive
And I am holding on.

    General Commentfor me this song isn't very metaphorical, i think it's pretty self explanatory. And yet again it's another one I can relate to very well. It's about someone taking a step back to look at their life, and they suddenly realize how alone they are. And like the title says - the person doesn't really think there's anybody out there. They're calling, and trying to find someone who really cares. They are asking themselves "what am I fighting for". This person though is staying strong though - "...but I am holding on."


    "Am I staring at my future,
    Is it time to take charge of my life"

    They realize they need to take charge of their life and change the path they're on, or they'll end up alone forever.

    GOOD SONG
