There's a lot of lonely people tonight
Trying to make it through 'til the morning light
There's me and you, babe, that's alright
There's a lot of lonely people tonight

I'm holdin' on tight to my pillow
I wish it had a life of its own
Starin' at the ceilin,' such a funny feelin'
But nobody home

But I know you're out there somewhere
That you feel the same way too
Now my only problem is trying to find
A way of getting through to you

There's a lot of lonely people tonight
Trying to make it through 'til the morning light
There's me and you, babe, that's alright
There's a lot of lonely people tonight

I guess we share the same old dream
Or maybe it's the same old lie
There's only one thing I'm sure of, now
And that's our time keeps rolling by

And far too many days run out
And nights begin this way
With my half of our hopeful couple
Trying to hold the dark at bay

There's a lot of lonely people tonight
Trying to make it through 'til the morning light
There's me and you, babe, that's alright
There's a lot of lonely people tonight

You can meet me on a city street
Or meet me by a country stream
You can meet me on a mountain top, babe
But don't you meet me in my dreams

You can meet me tomorrow morning
Baby, maybe you met me back when
You can meet me now inside this song
'Cause I don't wanna sleep alone again

There's a lot of lonely people tonight
Trying to make it through 'til the morning light
There's me and you, babe, that's alright
'Cause there's a lot of lonely people

So many lonely people
There's a lot of lonely people all over the world
We even lay with children and beautiful girls
Yes, there's me and you, babe, but that's alright
'Cause there's a lot of lonely people tonight
