Send Somebody

(Colin Hay/Michael Georgiades)

Hello to who I’m talking to no more automation
I’m hoping you can walk me through and solve my situation
It’s after midnight and I’ve been on hold so long
You  broke through the silence now I’m not alone

You’re asking me to help you see the words begin to flow
This was not my plan or my intention how was I to know
For such a short time feel I’ve known you for so long
And I don’t think I can make it all on my own

So send somebody ’cause I’m stranded and there’s no place left where I can run
Send somebody ’cause I’m hanging by a thread now the whole damn thing’s undone

You have to know I can’t let go now I’ve made this connection
It’s either love that runs the show or random speculation
In my desperation I’m a danger to myself
I need your direction yeah I need someone else

So send somebody ’cause I’m stranded and there’s no place left where I can run
Send somebody ’cause I’m hanging by a thread now the whole damn thing’s undone

From my window as the leaves begin to fall
Before the cold wind comes please hear my call

And send somebody ’cause I’m stranded and there’s no place left where I can run
Send somebody ’cause I’m hanging by a thread now the whole damn thing’s undone

Send somebody ’cause I’m stranded and there’s no place left where I can run
Send somebody ’cause I’m hanging by a thread now the whole damn thing’s undone

Somebody, send somebody, send someone…
