Sing along to 'Somebody': Lyrics

Polish Lyrics

We’re caught in
Dark nights in the silence
Drowning in the deep end
Calling to the sky
Too many times
As roses
Can grow beneath a pavement
I’d swim a hundred oceans
You’ll never walk alone
I’ll be there

Nikt nie będzie czuł się sam
W ramionach utuli nas ten dobry świat
Ponad tym, co budzi strach
Ja czekam na ciebie
i jestem

Proszę, usłysz mój głos
Zaczekam
Noc zamieni się z dniem
Ja czekam
Na ciebie warto, to wiem
Poczekam

Teraz żeglujemy w przyszłość
Mamy w sobie miłość
Która burzy mur gorzkich słów
Co będzie,
Czy to jeszcze ważne?
Prawda nas odnajdzie
I poprowadzi tam, gdzie nigdy już

When your heart’s too heavy to hold
And you can’t find the words to tell me
I’d run every mile between us now
Just to let you know somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting for you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting
Somebody’s waiting for you
I’m waiting

Time goes by
Don’t be afraid anyway
I know what is bad will pass
Sometime someone
Same as us
He told me
That anything is possible
Oooo-ooo-oo-ooo
Oooo-ooo-oo-ooo
Please hear my voice
I’ll wait
The night will turn into the day
I’m waiting
You’re worth it, I know that
I will wait
Somebody’s waiting for you

English translation

We’re caught in
Dark nights in the silence
Drowning in the deep end
Calling to the sky
Too many times
As roses
Can grow beneath a pavement
I’d swim a hundred oceans
You’ll never walk alone
I’ll be there

Nobody will feel alone
This good world will hold us in her arms
Beyond what inspires fear
I am waiting for you
and I am

Please hear my voice
I’ll wait
The night will turn into the day
I’m waiting
You’re worth it, I know that
I will wait

Now we’re sailing into the future
We have love in us
Which breaks down the wall of bitter words
What’s going to be,
Is it still important?
The truth will find us
And it will lead where never again

When your heart’s too heavy to hold
And you can’t find the words to tell me
I’d run every mile between us now
Just to let you know somebody’s waiting

Somebody’s waiting for you
I’m waiting
I’m waiting for you
I’m waiting
Somebody’s waiting for you
I’m waiting

Time goes by
Don’t be afraid anyway
I know what is bad will pass
Sometime someone
Same as us
He told me
That anything is possible
Oooo-ooo-oo-ooo
Oooo-ooo-oo-ooo
Please hear my voice
I’ll wait
The night will turn into the day
I’m waiting
You’re worth it, I know that
I will wait
Somebody’s waiting for you
