Song for the Lonely



To listen to Song for the Lonely, click here









In the halls of total darkness where the women sit and wait
For some angel of compassion who will open heaven’s gate
Ah you cannot have Adonis, you can’t win the holy dove
Yet we all need a body to love

Yes we all need a body to love
A body we can lie in, we can do the deed and die in
Yes we all need a body to love

Now I’m not one for imploring I’m not one to say please
No man ever won a woman on his broken bended knees
But the thunder clouds are roaring here’s my ark and here’s the flood
And we all need a body to love

Yes we all need a body to love, yes we all need a body to love
When the darkness comes to get you, with its nails and fisted glove
We all need a body to love

Now I may not be Tom Cruise and I may not be Brad Pitt
But lady in the darkness I’m a man I’m what there is
And you’d rather have Bruce Willis in a Silver Cloud Rolls Royce
But he ain’t got my youth he ain’t got my golden voice

And we all need a body to love, yes we all need a body to love
From the clinches down below to the clich├ęs up above
We all need a body to love

Yes we all need a body to love, yes we all need a body to love
An incident of tenderness in this world of push and shove
Yes we all need a body to love
