Somebody's gettin' outa bed
Somebody's gettin' herself dressed
Somebody's combin' back her hair
Somebody's dancin' down the stairs

And on the T.V. and in the magazines
She sees the people she would like to be

Somebody steals away her dreams
Somebody ? race is all they see
Somebody take(s) away her pride
Somebody don't know wrong from right

See how we are
There ain't no 4-leaf clover
In the blink of an eye
Everything changes
We gotta start all over

Down in that deep muddy river (so long ago)
Blood is much thicker than water (the angels know)
Love is the ocean we swim in (so long ago)
Carry us to our beginning (the angels know)

Somebody take(s) away my name(s)
Somebody tell me who I am
Somebody testify for love
Somebody where are you tonight?

Down in that deep muddy river (so long ago)
Blood is much thicker than water (the angels know)
She hears a voice sweetly singing (so long ago)
Down in that deep purple ocean (the angels know)
But we never know where we're goin' (so come on home)
And carry us to our beginning (the angels know)
