  Used to be Somebody
Used to travel, used to strut
Used to turn the head
Used to talk and get response

One day all changed
Turned the corner on 50
Became invisible
Became the walking lonely

You only call when you want compassion
You only look when you want pity
You only know the depth of my despair
When you look into the eyes of someone

Who use to be Somebody

Pretty good! Sad to say that it's often so true. Thanks Christine
