Somebody Nobody Knows - The Everly Brothers



Somebody Nobody Knows
Alone in a bar room, a young girl is sitting
And smiling, at nothing at all
And she stares now and then, at the eyes of the men
In the mirror that hangs on the wall
She's waiting for someone and knowing there's no one
Who cares if she comes or she goes
Just a soul in the shadows the world never sees

She's somebody nobody knows
Someone no one's ever known
Cryin' where no one can hear
Somebody's dying alone
In a city, where nobody cares

Down in the gutter, an old man had fallen
Like someone the world threw away
And the late crowd was leaving, and nobody even
Took time to look down where he lay
The old man was crying and helplessly tryin'
To wipe off the stain from his clothes
Just a soul in the shadows, that life left behind

He's somebody nobody knows
Someone no one's ever known
Cryin' where no one can hear
Somebody's dying alone
In a city, where nobody cares
in a city, where nobody cares
