Ever get a feeling like everything is wrong
Everybody joined the club and you just don’t belong
You’re cold and lonely on the outside looking in
When you’re racin’ down a dead end road where do you begin

Help somebody it’ll turn your world around
Help somebody get your feet on solid ground
When you’re down and out and upside down reach out to someone else
Help somebody and you help yourself
Help somebody and you help yourself

Got a God shaped hole and I can’t fill it with food
Can’t plug it up with money or drown it in booze
I dreamed someone could love me and make me someone new
Then a blackbird sang in the dead of night and I knew what I had to do

Help somebody it’ll turn your world around
Help somebody get your feet on solid ground
When you’re down/out upside/down reach out to someone else
Help somebody and you help yourself
Help somebody and you help yourself

Maybe you think I’ve got it all together
Don’t believe what you think you see
Because we could both get to feelin’ better
If you’ll help somebody like me
