Is Anybody There?

Well I'm out here on my own
Followin' a star
Asking on my knees, for some direction, please,
And, God, you know that's hard

Cause I'm such a stubborn man
Lord, I'm stubborn as a mule
Even though I struggle some, I believe a change will come
And I hear you love a fool
I see a road and a flash of lightning
Let me tell you it's frightening

[Chorus]
Is anybody there?
Oh, I need somebody tonight

To care
I'm feeling alone and it just don't seem right
Is anybody there?
Oh, I need somebody to be
To know that I'm good enough for love
To walk beside me

And as a woman in this world
Well you must have felt like this
That a man might come along
With another hard luck song
And betray you with a kiss

But would you reconsider me
Though I know I've caused you pain
I've taken vows with you
I believe them to be true
Now can we take a little rain?

We could hit that road in a flash of lightning
Maybe it won't be so frightening

[Chorus 2x]

I'm gonna keep on walking, baby
