When you're standing on the edge of nowhere
There's only one way up
So your heart's got to go there
Through the darkest nights
See the light shine bright
When heroes fall, in love or war
They live forever

[Chorus:]
This is a song for the lonely
Can you hear me tonight
For the broken hearted, battle scarred
I'll be by your side
And this is a song for the lonely
When your dreams won't come true
Can you hear this prayer
'Cause someone's there for you

Well love don't need a reason
She can pick you up
Or leave you bleeding
I've seen a strong man cry
I know the reason why
We all forgive, we all forget
We just keep believing

[Chorus]

(Don't give up)
So let it find you
(Just hold on)
Wherever you may go
(Don't give up)
I'm right beside you
You don't have to look no more
You don't have to look no more, oh no

It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright
It's gonna be alright

[chorus]

This is a song
A song for the lonely
And that's not you only
Through the darkest night
You're gonna see the light

This is the song for the lonely
When your dreams won't come true
Can you hear this prayer
Someone's there (3x)
For you
