Steve Earle

Somewhere out there in the world tonight

Just out of my reach

I hear your heart beat

Comin' in loud and clear tonight

Poundin' in my brain

Callin' out your name

In the darkness something binds you to me

So that I can find you

When you want me

I will be there

Waiting on you

Somewhere out there

In there in your heart tonight

Where I have never gone

You are not alone

It is tearing me all apart alright

But girl what can I do

When I'm so far from you

And when I lay me down to sleep

My one and only prayer is you'll keep

Safe from harm until I get

Wherever you are

Somewhere out there

If you're sad or if you're lonely

If you're scared, if you're only

Tired of fightin'

Seekin' shelter

Just hold on I'm

Somewhere out there

Somewhere out there in the world tonight

Just out of your reach

You'll hear my heart beat
