  Only the Lonely  
 

Only the lonely

Can hear a heart beat

In an empty room.

Only the lonely

Look for a kindly light

To pierce their darkest gloom.

Only the lonely

Know the taste of tears

As they reminisce without a friend.

Only the lonely

Endure those silent days

That never seem to end.

Only the lonely

Know that emptiness

Can fill a broken heart.

Only the lonely

Never say goodbye

For from whom shall they depart?

Only the lonely

Speak with a silent voice

Of their heartaches and their fear

Only the lonely

Converse with immobile lips

For who else is there to hear?

Only the lonely

Stare into the flickering flames

With their thoughts of long ago.

Only the lonely

Know of the daily pain

That they must undergo.

Only the lonely

Dream of another's arms

And the warmth of an embrace

Only the lonely

Pray for that welcome reprieve

And the sight of a friendly face.
