Someone There You Know - Lyrics by Barclay James Harvest, The


I've been looking for a place that i know well
It's a long long way from here and when i get there
I will tell, i will tell
I've been looking for a time that i once knew
I could spend some happy hours just being there with you
It doesn't matter where you go
As long as there is someone there you know

So if you need a friend you can depend on me
'cause i know what it feels to be alone
And in the darkest night you need a light to see
Your shadow's sinking low
Just like a stone
Feels like a broken bone
Guess i'll go on home

I've been looking for someone i know so well
She's a long long way from me and when i find her
I will tell her
It doesn't matter where she goes
As long as there is someone there she knows
