Do Your Best

Someone,
Someone's alone,
In the city tonight,
You've gotta do what's right,
In the city tonight,
Someone's alone,

Reach out your hands to the one alone,
In your city tonight,
You gotta do whats right,
In your city tonight
Someone's alone,
Someone's alone,
In your city,

Someone's alone,
Someone's alone,
In your city tonight,
You gotta do what's right,
In the city,
Reach out your hands to the one alone,
In your city,
Reach out your hands to the one alone,
In the city, in the city, in the city.

albeit petty, i hear "You" instead of "You've" the three times in the song.
anyone else?
