Lately I've been hard to reach, I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world, where they can be alone
Are you calling me? Are you trying to get through?
Are you reaching out for me, and I'm reaching out for you
A sample from the Queen + Paul Rodgers version of “Reaching Out”, originally by Rock Therapy.
This sample was used to show that Eminem has taken a hiatus from rap and his fans were waiting for him to come back on the spotlight.
“I’m reaching out for you” also states that he is trying to regain contact with his fans, that he missed them
Ironically, at one time Eminem had mentioned how Detroit was once an enormous trade center for the world. To him Detroit is still beautiful and partially inspired the song.
