Only The Lonely

Ultimate Shirley Horn, 3 minutes

Only The Lonely

Lyrics

Shirley Horn

Each place I go, only the lonely go
Some little small cafe
The songs I know, only the lonely know
Each melody recalls a love that used to be

The dreams I dream, only the lonely dream
Of lips as warm as May
That hopeless scheme, only the lonely scheme
That soon somewhere you'll find the one that used to care

And you'll recall each fun time
Those picnics at the beach when love was new
It well could be the one time
A hopeless little dream like that comes true

If you find love, hang on to each caress
And never let love go
For when it's gone you'll know the loneliness
The heartbreak only the lonely know
