I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.
The mist is lifting slowly,
I can see the way ahead
And I've left behind the empty streets
That once inspired my life
And the strength of the emotion
Is like thunder in the air
'Cos the promise that we made each other
Haunts me to the end.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

The secret of your beauty
And the mystery of your soul
I've been searching for in everyone I meet
And the times I've been mistaken
It's impossible to say
And the grass is growing
Underneath our feet.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

The words that I remember
From my childhood still are true
That there's none so blind
As those who will not see
And to those who lack the courage
And say it's dangerous to try
Well they just don't know
That love eternal will not be denied.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

Yes, I know it's going to happen,
I can feel you getting near
And soon we'll be returning
To the fountain of our youth
And, if you wake up wondering
In the darkness, I'll be there.
My arms will close around you
And protect you with the truth.

I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere,
Somewhere you can hear my voice.
I know I'll find you somehow,
Somehow, somehow.
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you.

    General CommentThis is the first song I've ever heard by them...they are one of the few British invasion bands to acheive major fame in the 1980's. I think this song's message is straightforward. I love their early stuff and their later stuff.

    General CommentIn order to evolve to the next level, one must understand that their unique self is part of a higher order. This order invloves everyone and those who allow their hopes and dreams rule their actions realize that if we dig deep enough, all of our dreams would lead to a place I would refer to as home. Once one establishes contact with a fellow human and they both see that they can rebound off the strength of each other to pursue the inner/outer peace. This is primarily attempted through a bond named marriage. Although with a community style viewpoint, one could recognize that those closest around you could also share these dreams of a world without pain. Make no mistake, a perfect utopian society would be near impossible to achieve; we all in a sense get distracted at times. Even though the fire(passion) isn't yet realized in most people, we must find those that are already seeking answers to questions that may never be answered. But we will try, accepting each others faults through forgiveness, because we too get distracted from the dream. There has to be a goal for actions to take place, or there is no moving ahead. To seek out the truth through love and creativity we once lived by when we were younger, is the future of tomorrow. Believe that and let your dreams take you for that journey, that river and let the music guide you every step of the way.
