Secret Garden – I Heard Someone Crying lyrics

Mary: I heard someone crying, who though could it be?
Maybe it was mother, calling out come see.
Maybe it was father, all alone and lost and cold
I heard somone crying, maybe it was me.

Archie: I heard someone singing, who though could it be?
Maybe it was Lily, calling out to me
Maybe she's not gone so far away as I've been told
I heard someone singing, maybe it was she

Mary: Maybe it was someone I could find and have a cup of tea '
Maybe it was someone who could bring the tea and come find me

Lily: I heard someone crying, though I can't say who
Someone in this house, with nothing left to do.
Someone like her father, left alone, his love grown cold
I heard someone crying, maybe it was you

Mary and archie: Maybe I was dreaming of a garden growing far below
Maybe I was dreaming of a life I will never know

Mary: Someone's crying, who though could it be?
Someone in this house, that no one seems to see
Someone no one seems to hear, except for me
I heard someone crying, maybe it was me

Men: I heard someone crying, who else would it be?
Surely it was Mary, why can no one see

Women: Crying for her mother, for the like she's never known

Archie: So lost, see her lying in her room
