She Can't Help Herself
by Level 42



When she was a baby the world was a picture
One twist of fate took her parents away
On a highway, they're not coming home
She's alone
Then strangers appeared gave her love that she needed
Over those green hills and so far away
Like an echo, in the night she'd scream
In her dreams

She can't help herself, she can't help herself
She can't help herself crying alone
But there's so many crying like you

When nearly a woman a friend of the family
Took that away that was precious to give
She pretended nothing happened there
Through the years

She can't help herself, she can't help herself
She can't help herself crying alone
But there's so many crying like you

Now she walks alone down the lane made for lovers
Too scared to open her heart to someone
Close the door and push away the pain, once again

She can't help herself, she can't help herself
She can't help herself crying alone
All her bridges were burned long ago
She can't help herself, she can't help herself
She can't help herself crying alone
But there's so many crying like you

Don't cry, leave a light on the landing hall
Don't cry, there's a rainbow behind that door

Just when you can't take anymore
. . . there'll be someone to help you
To break down the walls
Just when you can't feel anymore
. . . there'll be someone
To help you to even the score
Just when you can't give anymore
. . . there'll be someone
To help you to break down the walls
Just when you can't take anymore

. . . there'll be someone for sure
