Wish I Were Only Lonely lyrics

When you ain't got nobody
Then nobody ever says goodbye
You don't have to wait for someone
To make you laugh or make you cry
Wish I were only lonely
Just kind of ordinary blue
If I were only lonely
Then maybe I'd know what to do
But I'm helpless 'cause I'm lonely for you
I sleep in a bed so empty
It's an emptiness no one can fill
I may have to go on living
But life without you ain't no thrill
[Repeat Chorus]
Well, whoever said it's better
To love and to lose
He ought to be right here in my shoes
[Repeat Chorus
