(bonnie tyler/ paul hopkins)
Producers for bonnie: steve lipson $ betsy cooke
Recorded in 1981 as a b-side for the single 'sayonara tokyo', and was later used as the b-side for 'faster than the speed of night' in 1983. the two versions are actually quite different, but the same production credits are given for both. lyrics taken from careful listening.

I'm sat here all alone
Here in my one room home
No one comes 'round no more
No one knocks on my door
Was high, then came the fall
The tax man took it all
I didn't play the rules
I was a careless fool

But it's gonna get better
Feel it in my bones
Just got to hold you 'cause I'm all alone
I need your touch
I need you here to stay
This time I'll never let you get away

They laughed at all my jokes
Look around, where are those crazy folks?
I think of real good times
Those wasted partying nights

Just bring your loving home
Don't waste love on the phone
I love you yes it's true
Hell's what I've been going through
There'll be more ups and downs
Please make that turn around
Not that we've played 'away'
You're coming home to stay

And it's gonna get better
Feel it in my bones
Just got to hold you 'cause I'm all alone
I need your touch
I need you here to stay
Never ever gonna let you get away
Feel it in my bones
Feel it in my bones
'cause I'm all alone
