Prince “Somewhere Here on Earth”

Prince looked like perfection as he performed ‘Somewhere Here On Earth’ on Jay Leno. His makeup was flawless and his hair looked like it had been cut and styled by angels. Prince was 50 years old at the time and his birthday was just days away. But Prince had no worries and he looked as if he’d lured father time into a basement and had tied him up. The 2009 Jay Leno performance came almost two years after the release of Prince’s thirty-second album “Planet Earth.” The album debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts when it was released on July 15, 2007. The album sold 96,000 units in one week with little to no promotion. There are several standout tracks from the album including “Guitar,” “Chelsea Rogers,” and “Future Baby Mama” which earned Prince the 2008 Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

“Somewhere Here On Earth”
From the Album “Planet Earth”
Released July 15, 2007

Lyrics
I know you are out there
I can feel your eyes on me
Seen that face a thousand times
If only in my dreams
I know you really want me
I can feel your hands on me
I really want to touch you to
In a way I’m much to shy to speak
And even though
I’m all alone
For what it’s worth
You’re somewhere here on Earth
And I like it
I know you’re out there
I can feel you getting closer to me
I’m just wondering what you’re waiting for
You know I am free
In this digital age, you could just page me
I know it’s the rage, but it just don’t engage me
I like the face to face
Do you want to do this at yours, or my place?
It’s been so long
Since I been with somebody
Like a million years
Now you’re here on Earth
You’re here, you’re here
Somewhere here on Earth
And I like it, I like it
Listen
I know you hear me
Like a whisper in your ear
You don’t have to fear me
You’re everything I hold so dear
I know you already love me
You’re probably just to cool to say
Somebody somewhere put you down
But that’s ok, that’s ok
‘Cause whatever you feel
It’s time to heal
No, no more hurt
As long as I’m here on Earth.
