(andrew kastner, larry mcnally, max gronenthal)

Must be a million girls in this great big city
I know that one of them is just right for me
I've looked uptown, downtown, all around searchin'
I know she's out there waiting for me

Somewhere, somebody, lookin', longin'
Somewhere, somebody, waitin' for me
Somewhere, somebody, searchin', prayin'
Tell me where in the world can this girl be

You know street lights shine in those passin' faces
I keep tryin' to catch somebody's eye
But all the shoulda been's, the woulda been's, the mighta been's and the coulda been's
Slippin' away and just walk right on by

Somewhere, somebody, lookin', longin'
Somewhere, somebody, waitin' for me
Somewhere, somebody, searchin', prayin'
Tell me where in the world can this girl be

I walk in the rain that's fallin'
Some voice in the distance callin', why
I run to the empty doorway waitin' for the sun to shine
When will love be mine

Somewhere, somebody, searchin', prayin'
Tell me where in the world
Somewhere, somebody, searchin', prayin'
Tell me where in the world

Must be a million girls in this great big city
I know you're out there waiting for me
