Lonely Hearts...
Lonely hearts cry at night as the night gets cold
Crying in the darkness, as the night grows old
If you listen to the sound of the lonely heart
You'll hear pieces thundering as it breaks apart

Reaching out for someone, crying out for love
Reaching in the moonlight shining from above
No one pays attention to the lonely heart
Even though they hear it as it breaks apart

Lonely hearts break at night, and try to heal all day
Lonely hearts cry at night, but you just turned away
A lonely heart will cry until the morning light
Don't let it pass you by, a lonely heart at night.

The pain is hard to bear, but still they must go on
Reaching out for someone, but everyone is gone
If you ever turn your back on the lonely heart
You'll hear pieces crumbling as it breaks apart

And when the night is silent, and it's getting warm
You can't hear the thunder of that distant storm
Finally someone heard the sound of the lonely heart
And then caught all the pieces, as it broke apart

Lonely hearts break at night, and try to heal all day
Lonely hearts cry at night, but you just turned away
A lonely heart will cry until the morning light
Don't let it pass you by, a lonely heart at night.
