Some people's lives run down like clocks
One day they stop and that's all they've got
Some lives wear out like old tennis shoes
No one can use, well, it's sad but it's true

Didn't anybody tell them?
Didn't anybody see?
Didn't anybody love them
Like you love me?

Some people's lives fade like their dreams
Too tired to rise, too tired to sleep
Some people laugh when they need to cry
And they never know why

Didn't anybody tell them
That's not how it has to be?
Didn't anybody love them
Like you love me?

Some people ask if the tears have to fall
Then why take your chances? Why bother at all?
And some people's lives are as cold as their lips
They just need to be kissed

Doesn't anybody tell them?
Doesn't anybody see?
Doesn't anybody love them
Like you love me?
'Cause that's all they need

Songwriters
FLEMING, RHONDA KYE / IAN, JANIS
