Not enough just to say that I miss you
Calling up from a special area code
Is there anybody out there listening
On the receiving end of the phone?

Just to hear your voice for a moment
You should know I miss that everyday
And although we are oceans apart now
Maybe you might hear this distress signal

Is there anybody out there listening?
Is there anybody all alone?
You only get one last shot to make it
(In a war on a foreign soil)
Is there anybody?

Take me home, far away from the fighting
Load my bags, they're packed and ready to go
Had enough of the desert sand and roadside
Bombs away, let's send our soldiers home

Johnny went off to war at just 19 years old
Julie, his teenage bride of six weeks was due
He got caught up in an enemy fire and died beside the road
He never knew his own daughter

Is there anybody out there listening?
Is there anybody all alone?
You only get one last shot to make it
(In a war on a foreign soil)
Is there anybody out there?

(Is there anybody out there listening?)
We're alright tonight
(Is there anybody all alone?)
I can hear, I can hear, I can hear you now
(You only get one last shot to make it)
To make it on your own
(Is there anybody out there?

Take me home, far away from the fighting
Load my bags, they're packed and ready to go
