Save Somebody Lyrics

by Janis Ian

In the heart of the city
Is the beat of a soul?
And it stares out the window
As the cars come and go

And it hungers for heroes
And it dreams of open skies
And theres no expectation
That the sun will rise

You better save somebody
Save somebody
Before the moment slips away
You better save somebody
Wholl be lonely?
When you walk away

Theres a crack in the heavens
And a tear in the sky
It cuts through the shadows
Living in her eyes

And the gates of the city
Are closed until dawn
When the ghosts of midnight
Have come and gone
And the hearts of the weary carry on

You better save somebody
Save somebody
Before the moment slips away
You better save somebody
Wholl be lonely?
When you walk away

And Im thinking of your silence
How the memory lingers on
And I wonder do you miss me
Now that I am gone, now that I am gone

You better save somebody
Save somebody
Before the moment slips away

You better save somebody
Wholl be lonely?
When you walk away
