She calls me up and says baby it's a lonely ol' night
I don't know I'm just so scared and lonely all at the same time

Nobody told us it was gonna work out this way no, no, no, no, no
I guess they knew, we'd work it out in our own way

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol' night
Custom made for two lonely people like me and you

Radio playin' softly some singer's sang sad song
He's singin' about standing in the shadows of love I guess he feels awfully alone

She says I know exactly what he means yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
And it's a sad, sad, sad, sad feelin' when you're livin' on those in-betweens but it's okay

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol' night
Custom made for two lonely people like me and you

She calls me baby, she calls everybody baby
It's a lonely ol' night but ain't they all

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol' night
Custom made for two lonely people like me and you

It's a lonely ol' night
Can I put my arms around you?
It's a lonely ol' night
Custom made for two lonely people like me and you
Yeah, like me and you
Yeah, like me and you
