  • Now it seems to me
    That you know just what to say
    But words are only words
    Can you show me something else?
    Can you swear to me
    That you'll always be this way?
    Show me how you feel
    More then ever, baby

    I don't want to be lonely no more
    I don't want to have to pay for this
    I don't want another lover at my door
    It's just another heartache on my list
    I don't want to be angry no more
    You know I could never stand for this
    So when you tell me that you love me now for sure
    I don't want to be lonely anymore

    Oh, whoa
    Oh, whoa
    Whoa, oh
    Oh, whoa
    Oh, whoa
    Oh, whoa

    Now it's hard for me
    When my heart's still on the mend
    Open up to me
    Like you do your girlfriends
    And you sing to me
    And it's harmony
    Girl, what you do to me is everything
    If you say anything, just to get you back again
    Why can't we just try?

    I don't want to be lonely no more
    I don't want to have to pay for this
    I don't want another lover at my door
    It's just another heartache on my list
    I don't want to be angry no more
    You know I could never stand for this
    So when you tell me that you love me now for sure
    I don't want to be lonely anymore

    What if I was good to you?
    What if you were good to me?
    What if I could hold you
    Till I feel you move inside me?
    What if it was Paradise?
    What if we were symphonies?
    What if I gave all my life to find some way to stand beside you?

    I don't want to be lonely no more
    I don't want to have to pay for this
    I don't want another lover at my door
    It's just another heartache on my list
    I don't want to be angry no more
    You know I could never stand for this
    So when you tell me that you love me now for sure
    I don't want to be lonely anymore Writer/s: ROB THOMAS, ROBERT THOMAS
