Francesca Battistelli - Where Were You Lyrics




Calling and calling, nobody home
It feels like I'm falling alone
Out on an Island, there's a voice on the beach
Watching your plane pass over me

How could you miss me?
With my hands in the air
I thought you were listening
I thought you'd be there!

Where were you?
When I had no one to turn to
Where were you?
When my worst fears were coming true
Where were you?
I thought you'd come to my rescue
Where were you?

One set of footprints, on the path I'd been on
But you say you've been here all along, oh
If you really loved me, like nobody else
Why was I walking through hell

How could you miss me?
With my hands in the air
I thought you were listening
Oh, I thought you'd be there!

Where were you?
When I had no one to turn to
Where were you?
When my worst fears were coming true
Where were you?
I thought you'd come to my rescue

When my prayers bounced off the ceiling
I was facing down my demons
When my legs gave up beneath me
And I fell into your arms

Where were you?
When I had no one to turn to
You carried me through
On your shoulders, black and blue
I never knew
The footprints in the sand were you
Were you

One set of footprints, on a path I'd been on
Now I know they were yours all along

Francesca Battistelli Where Were You Comments
  1. Robert Taylor

    Was feeling this way when i lost my dad to cancer. I hated god for taking him away from me and for not saving him from the cancer. Took me while for me to know he did save him and that hes still with me.

  2. Ruban Samson

    Love this song

  3. Annabelle Frederick

    God is with us even when it doesn't feel like it

  4. Kristen Lockamy

    Where we u

  5. Santigo Gonzalez

    My grandfather died about a month ago and I’m still grieving. But this song proves that even in our darkest hour, God is always with us when someone we love is no longer with us. He knows what I’m going though, but I know that I’m not alone, for Jesus Christ is with me, and will always lift me up from the pit of sadness.

  6. TYB

    I dont know where to go. I dont know who to talk to. Stuck betwixt hard places and rocks.

    My hands are figuratively in the air. Just waiting for time to take me away. No matter what I do, I'm wrong somehow. And somehow I'll suffer. And I am causing someone else anguish in the mean time

  7. Repent and GOD will forgive you

    stay away from thisssssssssssssssss movie

  8. Merhaba Tsegai

    Wonderful song! But I always wander why this days songs don't have the words, God, Jesus, Lord, Holy Spirit🤔

    Melissa Herzberger

    I believe the reason artists don't refer to Him as "Jesus", "Lord", "Christ", "God", "Abba" "Father" or refer to the Holy Spirit in songs anymore is so their music can be considered pop, country, ect & can be played on various stations under a variety of genres so not to be labeled exclusively Christian music and played solely on Christian stations. That's jmo.

    Merhaba Tsegai

    @UCrLBfG_poaG73Vd1xNVE4iw I totally understand! You are right. But, it would rather be neglected because of it's content "God, Jesus, HolySpirit" and have the devine Power than being accepted by all liberal groups. I guess, we christians are compromising a lot to attract the outsiders (the world) and lose our stand...

  9. Tonya Threadgill

    I felt this way years ago. But God has shown me that he has always been there no matter where I was or am. He loves us all! He's always with us!

  10. Lovely Ladee

    How could you miss me, with my hands in the air ?I thought you were listening, I thought you'd be there🎼🎶🎵🎵🎶🎶🎤 This part hit home for me.

    Very beautiful song means alot because i have been through unimaginable stuff as a young kid

  24. The Gill Family Magic

    Why do I cry everytime I hear this.. my father was an alcoholic and would beat my mom so bad... I would pray to God to take him away... the scars are so deep. I can see it clearly in the way I am with my oldest daughter... I wish I could show her my pain that I have like when McKenzie saw his father being afraid

    Ella Ruthig

    Skaap Bra I’ll pray for you and yours, that healing would be evident in your lives.

  31. john 3.16

    Great movie for false Christians, who love the hippie Jesus and the love movement- with other word Christians that never read the Bible Kjv . God is not a woman - Blasphemy at it's best

    Alissa Roberts

    Thessalonians 2:10-12 while the movie was very inaccurate to the Bible it was still an amazing movie and it had an amazing story behind what the movie was showing.

    If you watch the movie, you know why one of his MANY forms was a woman.
