  • Are you there?
    Are you watching me?
    As I lie here on this floor
    They say you feel what I do
    They say you're here every moment
    Will you stay?
    Stay till the darkness leaves
    Stay here with me
    I know you're busy, I know I'm just one
    But you might be the only one who sees me
    The only one to save me

    Why is it so hard?
    Why can't you just take me?
    I don't have much to go
    Before I fade completely

    Can you feel how cold I am?
    Do you cry as I do?
    Are you lonely up there all by yourself?
    Like I have felt all my life
    The only one to save mine

    How are you so strong?
    What's it like to feel so free?
    Your heart is really something
    Your love, a complete mystery to me

    Are you there watching me?
    As I lie here on this floor
    Do you cry, do you cry with me?
    Cry with me tonight

    Are you there?
    Are you watching me? Writer/s: Aben Eubanks, Kelly Brianne Clarkson

  • Justin from New YorkThis song is so vulnerable, so pure, true and the reasoning behind it so meaningful. I met her in person and love her!
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThis song has Kelly's best vocals, the lyrics tear my heart out.
  • Meaghan from Spring City, PaThis song is about the saddest, most hopeless moment of someone's life, and their conversation with God (whatever you want to call him, as Kelly says). It's not religious at all, but rather it's philosophical, doubting, and questioning.
