Raisin' up my voice to the wall and to the sky
It seeks no explanation, it waits for no reply
Really it is nothing, just a cry to the wilds

I'm delirious with chaos, I'm wonder struck with awe
In my soul, I'm dreaming only of your velvet shore
When I'm walking there, my face untangles like a child's

And only the lonely, only the lonely
Lonely could know me

I've been talkin' all night long, there's nothin' more to share
So I'm searchin' every mirror for a trace of yesterday
But the air, it holds no traces where the eagles were flyin'

And I'm haunted by the skyline, the concrete and the rain
The window speaks of winter, so Ill set my heart again
And somewhere in the dust, the curlew is cryin'

And only the lonely, only the lonely
Lonely could know me

I'm talkin' all night long
I'm talkin' all night

There's a copper moon that's buried as solitude expands
And distant planets moving, they're weighin' on my hands
They're darkening my pages

And there's daylight in my fingers but it's snowin' in my bones
Been suckin' on the echo of a thousand telephones
And when we meet again we will be strangers

And only the lonely, only the lonely
Lonely could know me

And only the lonely, only the lonely
Lonely could know me

I'm talkin' all night long
