You've been picked and it's over
What's the chip on your shoulder?
Out side were solid rainbows
Inside is where the heart grows
Picking up the pieces
Something more to believe in


As you search the embers
Think what you've had, remember
Hang on, don't you let go now
You know, with every heartbeat, we love
Nothing comes easy
Hang on, ask the lonely


You've got some fascination
With your high expectations
This love is your obsession
Your heart, your past possession
Let down your defences
Won't be up to the one who cares


As you search the embers
Think what you've had, remember
Hang on, don't you let go now
You know, with every heartbeat, we love
Nothing comes easy


Hang on, ask the lonely
When you're feeling love's unfair
You just ask the lonely
When you're lost in deep despair
You just ask the lonely


(chorus twice)


Ask the lonely
When you're down in deep despair
When you're down in deep despair
Ask the lonely
Lonely

    It means that he is telling himself that he is the one who is lonely. So ask him. But, he is telling himself to be strong and don't give up, and hang on- don't let go right now! Keep telling yourself- that you ae lonely now! But it is not the end- it is just a trial to your self and to keep searching, you know nothing comes easy, but hang on!
