(omitting background "choir")

Ohhhh, when he calls my name, I will ah-ah-a-answer,
When he calls, calls me yeah, I will ah-ah-a-answer,
When he calls my name, I will ah-ah-a-answer,
Wanna be somewhere, yeah lord, call my name!

I wanna be somewhere, lord, yeah lord call my name.
Wanna be somewhere-hair yeah lord call my name.
On that day we shall rise, wipe the tears from my eyes,
I wanna be somewhere, yeah lord call my name!

Mmm, I say "lord, you know I don't have no friend like you,
If heaven's not my home, please tell me what shall I do? "
Somebody sendin' for your child to lay heaven, oh but soon
I'm goin' to be somewhere, yeah call my name.

Oh, I wanna be somewhere, lord when he calls my name,
I wanna be somewhere, lord when he calls, calls my name,
Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down, sometimes leveled to the ground,
I wanna be somewhere, somewhere! Somewhere! Somewhere!
Somewhere! Somewhere! Somewhere!
Call my name, my name.
