Can Anybody Hear?

She left that small town
In search of dreams
Looking for something
In which she could believe
Instead she found tears

She'd cry herself
To sleep at night
When she's alone thats
The only time it's alright
She held these fears

She was always taught
To be brave, to be strong
And if she would break down
She thought it was wrong
But does anybody hear?

Can anybody hear
This call from the darkness
Cause its trying to find its voice
Can anybody hear
This cry from the hopeless
As they try to make a choice
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear
All these silent fears?

He left for the city
Heart full of hope
He thought he was wise
He thought he could cope
But it pulled him down

He was afraid
And he was confused
Battered and broken
He felt so used
And he wanted to drown

So he did in a bottle
When he was alone
He wanted to leave
But he hated home
Made himself a clown

Can anybody hear
This call from the darkness
Cause its trying to find its voice
Can anybody hear
This cry from the hopeless
As they try to make a choice
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear
All these silent fears?

Then Confused Boy found Dreamer Girl
And for a moment the world made sense
And Confused Boy he was so happy
He could think of nothing else

But then fate it played a joke
And it interceded
And the boy he lost hope
When hope was all he ever needed
Hope was all he ever needed
All he ever needed

Well does Anybody hear
This call from the darkness
Cause its trying to find its voice
Can anybody hear
This cry from the hopeless
As they try to make a choice
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear?
Can anybody hear
All these silent fears?
All the pain and all the tears
Well can anybody hear?
