Someone Else
Lyrics
Someone Else

Why do we have to say goodbye to someone else?
And why do the ships sail out to sea
For someone else not me
Maybe love will do the same
I'll be all alone again.

Why is so damned hard to find someone else?
Why do the girls/guys walk on by?
To someone else's arms
Guess I mustn't make the grade
Ill be all alone again

Here am I shooting arrows at the sky
Cupid doesn't work for me

Why do the clouds go sailing by to somewhere else?
And why do the planes leave vapour trails to places I can't see
That's for someone else not me
Was I born to be lonely?

Here am I firing missiles at the sky
No one seems to notice me
(Guitar solo)

Hear am I with my tears left high and dry
Will someone come to rescue me?

Why do I try so hard to find someone else?
Why do I have to share my dreams with someone else's dreams?
I will have to think it through
It would help if you would too
