PostSubject: "Lonely for You Only" lyrics   "Lonely for You Only" lyrics Icon_minitimeThu Mar 26, 2020 7:16 pm

Well, don't lie to me, don't lie to yourself
We were much too sentimental, baby, to make it in the modern world
And I spent my nights alone, and I rode the wheels off
I simply ain't the first thief, honey, holed up on a cross, and I don't believe that anybody hears you cry for me

'Cause they'll never know what it costs you to be whole
But to me you're a dream, a divine mystery
And I'm lonely, lonely for you only
I'm lonely, lonely for you only

So come talk to me, I can't see inside your head
There's a bitter beast that comes to feed on the things we never said
Tell me all the vicious things that no one knows but God
You simply ain't the worst that I've seen stumbling through the dark, and I'll take it to my grave no matter what they do to me

'Cause they'll never know what it costs you to be whole
But to me you're a dream, a divine mystery
And I'm lonely, lonely for you only
I'm lonely, lonely for you only

And maybe someday we'll get used to all this rain
Tumbling like the money through my hands
And maybe they'll call, say "We made a big mistake"
And you and I will get our wings

'Cause they'll never know what it costs you to be whole
But to me you're a dream, a divine mystery
And I'm lonely, lonely for you only
I'm lonely, lonely for you only

To call me up and take me for a ride
The troubled lovers run away and bleed for a while
In poems about Jersey girls in another life
Long before you and I were born
