Somewhere, a lonely girl lies weeping,
A lonely man tries sleeping,
But he's getting nowhere...
Sometime, it may be close to morning,
She thought she heard him calling,
But there's nobody there...
And somehow, somehow, he knows he's got to try to
Hold on, somewhere she's crying for him,
Hold on, someday her smile will call him.
Hold on, there's someone out there trying for him.
Somehow, sometime, somewhere...
Somewhere, again she sleeps alone,
He is reaching for the phone,
But he's calling no-one...
Oh sometime, she's dreaming of her lover,
It really can't be over,
We've only just begun...
And somehow, somehow, I know I've go to try to
Hold on, somewhere she's crying for me,
Hold on, someday her smile will call me,
Hold on, there's someone out there trying for me.
Somehow, sometime, somewhere, hold on, hold on,
Somehow, sometime, somewhere.
"God, that's an old one! I've got to think about that. It's just about two peolpe who got separated - maybe they had a quarrel - and the man is trying to get through to his woman saying 'Look - just hang on.' If you actually look at the first verse, then it explains what I'm attempting to remember after all these years!"
