Somewhere Out There


Songwriters: James Horner, Barry Mann, Cynthia Weil
Performers: Phillip Glasser/Betsy Cathcart, Linda Rondstadt/James Ingram
Category: 80s

This sweet ballad first came out with the 1986 animated movie An American Tail, featuring a pair of mice named Fievel and Tanya Mousekewitz. In the movie, the mice are brother and sister and they sing the song hoping to be reunited one day. The Top 40 version (by Linda Ronstadt & James Ingram) is geared more toward two lovers separated by distance and longing to be together again.

It won two Grammys in 1988 - Song of the Year and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television , and a Golden Globe and Oscar nomination in 1987 for Best Original Song.

LYRICS

Somewhere out there
Beneath the pale moonlight
Someone's thinking of me
And loving me tonight

Somewhere out there
Someone's saying a prayer
That we'll find one another
In that big somewhere out there

And 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 wind
Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping
Underneath the same big sky

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

And 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 wind
Starts to sing a lonesome lullaby
It helps to think we're sleeping
Underneath the same big sky

CHORUS
