"Are You There?" as written by and Dewey Bunnell....
The day we lost our voice with little choice, I can't explain
An act of agony
And someone told me too that it's true when you call aloud
It's only destiny
Or is it mystery
But then we came around and sang our song and acted proud
And posed for memory

We made a cry to the underground
Are you there
I looked and saw that they were still around
But do you care

I drank a little bit, so underlit to see it now
The show was never seen
And all the time I lost is never lost
It's only thumbing through eternity

We made a cry to the underground
Are you there
I looked and saw that they were still around
But do you care

Who are you going to see
What are you going to be

You made a cry to the underground
Are you there
I looked and saw that they were still around
But do you care

Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there)
Are you there (are you there) ...

    General Comment‘"Are You There" is an unusually pained but melodic rap by Dewey. He explained something about how that song came about:
    "Are You There" on the Harbor album was one of my real strong songs. That's kind of a good example because the song came straight out of the gut. We were on tour, and it was half way through the tour, and through physical abuse, basically, and some natural illnesses, we had to cancel. Daniel was one of the "illees," Gerry was sick too, and I felt this sort of "coitus interruptus" of the tour. You know, you just start rolling and WHAM! the tour is cancelled! So I came home and wrote the song -- it was like: "The day we lost our voice with little Joyce [choice], I can't explain, an act of agony." And that just came out at one sitting.’
