(Susan longacre, rick giles)

She married when she was twenty
She thought she was ready
Now she's not so sure
She thought she'd done some living
Now she's just wonderin'
What she's living for
Now she's feeling that there's something more

Chorus:
Is there life out there,
So much she hasn't done?
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home?
She's done what she should,
Should she do what she dares?
She doesn't want to leave,
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there?

She's always lived for tomorrow
She's never learned how
To live for today
Oh, she's dyin'
To try something foolish,
Do something crazy,
Or just get away
Oh, something for herself for a change

Chorus
Is there life out there,
So much she hasn't done?
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home?
She's done what she should,
Should she do what she dares?
She doesn't want to leave,
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there?

There's a place in the sun that she's never been
Where life is fair, and time is a friend
Would she do it the same as she did back then?
Oh, she looks out her window and wonders again

Is there life out there,
So much she hasn't done?
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home?
She's done what she should,
Should she do what she dares?
She doesn't want to leave,
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there?

Oh, she doesn't want to leave,
She's just wonderin'
Is there life out there?
