Just Too Many People

Album: Melissa (1975)
Charted: 30
  • Somebody told me a long, long time ago
    Oh baby - I feel a change in me
    Is comin' on
    I've found the strength I need
    To carry on
    Something's come over me at last

    Sweet darlin' - long as you stay by me
    I'm halfway home
    I can see brighter days before me
    Though it's been stormy
    At least I know I'm not alone

    'Cause there's just too many people
    In this world
    Who are undecided
    There's just too many broken people
    Afraid to take a stand
    There's just too many lonely people
    Livin' in a house divided
    By loneliness and sorrow
    I'll never understand

    Somebody told me a long, long time ago
    Remember when you need something to believe in
    Look in my eyes to find your heaven
    I'll make it happen
    I need to know you're there

    'Cause there's just too many people
    In this world
    Who are undecided
    There's just too many broken people
    Afraid to take a stand
    There's just too many lonely people
    Livin' in a house divided
    By loneliness and sorrow
    It's more than I can stand Writer/s: MELISSA MANCHESTER, VINCENT JR PONCIA
