Lyrics
Somebody's cryin' to be heard
And there's also someone who hears every word

Sail across the ocean with your back against the wind
Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird
And when the rain begins to fall, don't you start to curse
It may be just the tears of someone that you never heard

Somebody's cryin' to be heard
And there's also someone who hears every word

Reflected in the water is a face that you don't know
And isn't it surprising when you find out it's your own
And so you try to find out whether it is friend or foe
And what it is it wants from you, and what it wants to know

Somebody's cryin' to be heard
And there's also someone who hears every word

Well, you're wrapped up in your little world and no one can get in
You sit and think of everything, then you wonder where you've been
Put the blame on someone that you've hardly ever known
And then you realize too late the blame was all your own

Somebody's cryin' to be heard
And there's also someone who hears every word

Sail across the ocean with your back against the wind
Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird
And when the rain begins to fall, don't you start to curse
It may be just the tears of someone that you never heard

Somebody's cryin' to be heard
And there's also someone who hears every word
