Is Anybody Out There Lyrics

[nelly furtado]
I don't want to be left
in this war tonight
am i alone in this fight?
is anybody out there, yeah
don't want to be left, left in this world behind
say you'll run to my side
[k'naan]
Something 'bout Mary
never won a pageant,
never felt pretty, never looked like Cameron
Diaz was her last name
always been abandoned
keep your head up baby girl, this your anthem
there goes hannah
showing off her banner
rocking that crown, make them boys go bananas
when you're insecure 'bout yourself it's a fact,
you can point a finger but there's three pointing back
i can see her crying out yeah
is there anybody out there?
she's really counting on your love, still struggling uphill
but you act like you don't care
right now she could really use a shoulder
hanging on to the edge 'til it's over
she's crying for your love tonight,
lonely is hard to survive,
she said
[nelly furtado]
I don't want to be left
in this war tonight
am i alone in this fight?
is anybody out there, yeah
don't want to be left, left in this world behind
say you'll run to my side
is anybody out there yeah yeah yeah yeah
is anybody out there yeah yeah (somebody, anybody) yeah yeah

his name was adam
when his mom had him
dad was a phantom, never took a look at him.
grew up mad and antisocial
hated outdoors, always in playing madden.
adam was lonely,
drugs were the only way out of his own life
now he's slowly
losing his fire, close to retire
with one last hope he puts his arms up higher
i can see him crying out yeah
is there anybody out there?
he's really counting on your love, still struggling uphill
but you act like you don't care
right now he could really use a shoulder
hanging on to the edge 'til it's over
he's crying for your love tonight,
lonely is hard to survive,
he said

I don't want to be left
in this war tonight
am i alone in this fight?
is anybody out there, yeah
don't want to be left, left in this world behind
say you'll run to my side
is anybody out there
if you feel the way i feel,
like you've been talking to yourself,
well this is for everyone who's felt invisible,
lonely in a crowded room,
searching for someone like you
can't do it all alone (no one can baby)
can't do it all alone (no one should baby)
is anybody out there (somebody, anybody)
is anybody out there
is anybody out there (oh!)
I don't want to be left
in this war tonight
am i alone in this fight?
don't want to be left, left in this world behind
say you'll run to my side
is anybody out there yeah yeah yeah yeah
[k'naan]
i don't want to do it all alone (i don't want to do it all alone)
i need your love to take me home (i need your love to take me home)
no on said you should be alone (no one said you should be alone)
i'm right here
is anybody there
