Lyrics with pictures

Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moonlightBeneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me
And loving me tonight
Somewhere out there someone's saying a prayer Somewhere out there
Someone's saying a prayer

That we'll find one another
In that big somewhere out there.

And even though I knowAnd even though I know
How very far apart we are.
It helps to think
We might be wishing
On the same bright star.
And when the night windAnd when the night wind
Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping
Underneath the same big sky.

Somewhere out there
If love can see us through
Then we'll be together
Somewhere out there
Out where dreams come true.
