Another long and sleepless night
You need someone to hold you tight
Sometimes love dont know wrong from right
Another long and senseless
Fight was all you knew theyre all the same
Theres no one left to take the blame
Whats behind this masquerade
How do we win these losin
Games we play, words we say
Cutting wounds we know they run so deep
Leave it all behind you
Or someday love will find you

Chorus:
Only lonely -- I cant stop hurting you
Only lonely -- but I cant stop loving you
Only lonely -- how much pain does it take

Its getting sometimes I dont know
When to stop when to go
Sometimes were so afraid to let it show
A stolen kiss so out of place
It wipes the smile right off your face
And when those feelings start
We let them go, let them go

Games we play, words we say
Cutting wounds that run so deep
Leave it all behind you
Or someday love will find you

Only lonely -- I cant stop hurting you
Only lonely -- but I cant stop loving you
Only lonely -- so tell me babe, how much pain
Can you take before your heart breaks?

I got this timebomb ticking in my head
This time I think shes gonna blow
How can I say get away
When I just cant let go

Games we play, words we say
Cutting wounds that run so...
Leave it all behind you
Or someday love will find you

Chorus
