Somebody's Somebody

Written By: Jennifer Brantley Lisa Shafer & Gerald Smith

There she's sitting in her family room
With her brother, sister and mother and her daddy too
All of a sudden they all disappear
and she's back in her room at the Safe Haven Orphanage
Just her and her tears
She want to be Somebody's Somebody
not just in make believe
Somebody'e little girl some momma's whole world
all she want to be is somebody's somebody
Right down the street there's a woman in a nursing home.
Wanting somebody to drop by and say hello
She had a lot of friends but most of them are gone
and her kids dont realize how much she sits there alone.
She wants to be somebody's somebody
a friend is all she needs
to talk to now and then make her feel alive again
all she want to be is somebody's somebody
At the school on the corner
there'a a boy with special needs
hes got a heart of gold but he still gets teased
He just want to fit in thats all he'd like to do
He just wants to be treated like me and you
He wants to be Somebodys somebody
loved uncondtionally treated with respect
not differant from the rest
all he wants to be is sombody's somebody
somebody's somebody
