  • Show me the meaning of being lonely
    So many words for the broken heart
    It's hard to see in a crimson love
    So hard to breathe
    Walk with me, and maybe
    Nights of light so soon become
    Wild and free I could feel the sun
    Your every wish will be done
    They tell me

    Show me the meaning of being lonely
    Is this the feeling I need to walk with?
    Tell me why I can't be there where you are
    There's something missing in my heart

    Life goes on as it never ends
    Eyes of stone observe the trends
    They never say forever gaze upon me
    Guilty roads to an endless love (endless love)
    There's no control
    Are you with me now?
    Your every wish will be done
    They tell me

    Show me the meaning of being lonely
    Is this the feeling I need to walk with?
    (Tell me why) tell me why I can't be there where you are
    There's something missing in my heart

    There's nowhere to run
    I have no place to go
    Surrender my heart, body, and soul
    How can it be
    You're asking me
    To feel the things you never show

    You are missing in my heart
    Tell me why I can't be there where you are

    Show me the meaning of being lonely
    Is this the feeling I need to walk with?
    (Tell me why) tell me why I can't be there where you are (where you are)
    There's something missing in my heart

    Show me the meaning of being lonely (being lonely)
    Is this the feeling I need to walk with?
    (Tell me why) tell me why I can't be there where you are (where you are)
    There's something missing in my heart Writer/s: Herbert St Clair Crichlow, Martin Max
