Anybody Listening?
You and I
Long to live like the wind upon the water
If we close our eyes
We'll maybe realize
There's more to life than what we have known

And I can't believe I've spent so long
Living lies I know were wrong inside
I've just begun to see the light

Long ago there was a dream
(Had to make a choice or two)
Leaving all I loved behind
(For what nobody knew)
Stepped out on the stage, a life
Under lights and judging eyes
Now the applause has died and I
Can dream again

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what's going on?
Read between the lines
Criticize the words they're selling
Think for yourself and feel the walls
Become sand beneath your feet

(Sand beneath your feet)

Feel the breeze?
Time's so near, you can almost taste the freedom
There's a warm wind from the south
Hoist the sail and we'll be gone
By morning this will all seem like a dream

And if I don't return to sing the song
Maybe just as well, I've seen the news
And there's not much I can do alone

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone who smiles without a mask?
What's behind the words?
Images they know will please us?
I'll take what's real, bring up the lights

Is there anybody listening?
Is there anyone that sees what's going on?
Read between the lines
Criticize the words they're selling
Think for yourself and feel the walls
Become sand beneath your feet

Close your eyes
