Thinking alone in the dark of a room
On a street in a run down town;
Lying awake with the hum of outside
Running 'round and around and around in my mind.

Lament for the Lonely,
Lament for the Lonely
Lonely and I.

There's little relief socialising with those
Who hardly remember your name.
The music you play is all you can trust
Though grows stale played again and again...

Sight can seem so dark.
Life can be so dark.
Night is oh so dark,
For no reason why.

I can hardly remember the last time I felt
On top of the world and alive;
Without someone to comfort me
I lay down as though to die.
No one asks why.
