Only when you're lonely
Do you come knockin' at my door
Knowin' that I'll be there
To give you what you're looking for.
All of your so called friends have left you fall.

Only when you're lonely
Do you run to me
Only when you're lonely
Do you come to me
Only, when you're lonely,
Do you think of me at all.

I'm not, kidding myself
I know just where I fit in your plans
So don't you, start kidding yourself
I'm not the fool you think I am.
Oh you toy with me just
Like I was your rubber ball

Only when you're lonely
Do you run to me
Only when you're lonely
Do you come to me
Only, when you're lonely,
Do you think of me at all.

I don't mind (I don't mind)
Comes the time, I spend with you is precious to me
And though it's true (though it's true)
I'll need you
Oh yes I'll write cuz' I like having you around me

Only, when you're lonely
Do you come knockin' at my door
Knowin' somehow I'll be there
Like the too many times I've been before
Oh loving you I know is my biggest fault

Only when you're lonely
Do you run to me
Only when you're lonely
Do you come to me
Only, when you're lonely,
Do you think of me at all.
