Arabesque – The Only Night Was A Lonly Night lyrics

Written by Jean Frankfurter (Music)
And John Moering (Lyrics)
I still hear you say:
"I'll go far away
They gave me a job
And the money they pay
Will help us
We'll be okay"
So I let you go
But I should have know
What can happen
When men are alone
It was clear to me
When you came home
* Baby, the only night
Was a lonely night
There was some-one else
Thogh you held me tight
You were thinking of her
Yes, the only night
Was a lonely night
Which forever
Changed my life
Now don't lie to me
This girl, who is she
Did you tell her
Your heart is not free
Or doesn't she know
Know about me
She will understand
That I need my man
Please come home dear
As soon as you can
"I'll try to" you said,
"But I don't know when"
* (Repeat 2 times and fade)
