“You’re Only Lonely”



A friend of mine, Joe Napoleon sent me this link to the YouTube: http://youtu.be/dhgShqI45ik

This song “You’re Only Lonely” by J.D. Souther’ went to #7 in 1979 and is in the same vein as Roy Orbison’s song “Only The Lonely” from 1960. I like the lyrics of this song especially the lines
“And when you’re feeling lonely and small,
You need somebody there to hold you.”

LYRICS:

When the world is ready to fall on your little shoulders,
And when you’re feeling lonely and small,
You need somebody there to hold you.
You can call out my name… when you’re only lonely,
Now, don’t you ever be ashamed, you’re only lonely,

When you need somebody around on the nights that try you,
(Remember) I was there when you were a queen,
And I’ll be the last one there beside you.
So you can call out my name… when you’re only lonely.
Now, don’t you ever be ashamed, you’re only lonely,

When the world is ready to fall on your little shoulders,
And when you’re feeling lonely and small,
You need somebody there to hold you.
So don’t you ever be ashamed, you’re only lonely.
Ah, you can call out my name… when you’re only lonely,

When you’re only lonely…
Ah, it’s no crime… darling, we’ve got lots of time.

Ah, there’s nothing wrong with you…
Darling, I get lonely, too.

So if you need me, all you gotta do is call me.
You’re only lonely
