Charted: 55 95
  • Dear God, is there somebody out there
    Is there someone to hear my prayer
    I'm a simple man with simple words to say
    Is there some point in asking
    Asking for more only got us where we are today
    Lost and alone and afraid

    Give me, love for the lonely
    Give me, food for the hungry
    Give me, peace in a restless world
    Give me, hope for the children
    Give me, a worldwide religion
    Give me, peace in a restless world

    Dear God, can you hear me crying
    A whole world crying
    Looking for something to say
    We had it all and we threw it all away
    Is there somebody watching
    Somebody watching over the mess that we've made
    We're lost and alone and afraid

    Give me, love for the lonely
    Give me, food for the hungry
    Give me, peace in a restless world
    Give me, hope for the children
    Give me, a worldwide religion
    Give me, peace in a restless world

    And we need to know there's something good
    Though all our years of solitude go on and on and on

    Give me, love for the lonely
    Give me, food for the hungry
    Give me, peace in a restless world
    Give me, hope for the children
    Give me, a worldwide religion
    Give me, peace in a restless world

    Dear god, is there somebody out there
    Is there someone to hear my prayer Writer/s: ELTON JOHN, GARY ANTHONY OSBORNE
