When Somebody Cares
 
Tho, you’ve met with great misfortunes,
And no doubt many times felt blue,
Tho, your plans for life got side tracked,
And your dreams didn’t prove true,
Tho, you’ve toiled, praying, struggling,
At the bottom of the stairs,
You will find it helps an awful lot,
When you know that somebody cares.
 
I know that this world isn’t all sunshine,
For many a days a dark cloud does disclose,
But there’s a cross for every one of us,
And for everyone there is a rose,
Yet the cross isn’t so grievous,
Nor, the thorn the rose bed wears,
And it really makes a difference,
When you know that somebody cares.
 
It will send a thrill of rapture,
Through the brave work of your heart,
And it will stir the inner being,
Til’ the teardrops want to start,
Yet this world is worth the living,
When in your sorrow someone does share,
And the clouds have silver linings,
When you know that somebody cares.
