  • [Intro: Nelly Furtado]
    I don't wanna be left
    In this war tonight
    Am I alone in this fight?
    Is anybody out there, yeah
    Don't wanna be left, left in this world behind
    Say you'll run to my side

    [Verse 1: K'naan]
    Something 'bout Mary
    Never won a pageant
    Never felt pretty
    Never looked like Cameron
    Diaz was her last name
    Always been abandoned
    Keep your head up
    Baby girl this is your anthem
    There goes Hannah
    Showin' off her banner
    Rocking that crown
    Make them boys go bananas
    When you're insecure about yourself
    It's a fact
    You can point a finger
    But there's three pointing back

    [Pre-Hook: K'naan]
    I can see her crying out, yeah
    Is there anybody out there?
    She's really counting on your love
    Still struggling uphill
    But you act like you don't care
    Right now she could really use a shoulder
    Hanging onto the edge til it's over
    She's crying for your love tonight
    Loneliest is hard to survive, she said

    [Hook]

    [Verse 2: K'naan]
    His name was Adam
    When his mom had him
    Dad was a phantom
    Never took a look at him
    Grew up mad and
    Antisocial
    Hated outdoors
    Always in playing madden
    Adam was lonely
    Drugs were the only
    Way out of his own life
    Now he's slowly
    Losing his fire
    Close to retire
    With one last hope
    He puts his arms up higher

    [Pre-Hook: K'naan]
    I can see him crying out, yeah
    Is there anybody out there?
    He's really counting on your love
    Still struggling uphill
    But you act like you don't care
    Right now he could really use a shoulder
    Hanging onto the edge til it's over
    He's crying for your love tonight
    Loneliest heart to survive, he said

    [Hook:]

    [Bridge: Nelly Furtado]
    If you feel the way I feel
    Like you've been talking to yourself
    Well this one's for everyone who's felt invisible
    Lonely in a crowded room
    Searching for someone like you
    Can't do it all alone (no one can baby)
    Can't do it all alone (no one should baby)
    Is anybody out there?
    (somebody, anybody)
    Is anybody out there?
    I'm right here for your
    Is anybody out there?

    [Hook:]
