Somewhere down that lonesome track
There's a lover leavin' and he won't be back
And there's a heart that's breakin' as the sun goes down
And the silence of goodbye is such a lonesome sound

And as for heartache, I've been there before
I've been left knockin' outside love's door
I've been high and dry, couldn't find solitary
Just as cold as the wind out on the prarie

But that ain't nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
Well, it might come close, but not quite
If the sky lost the stars and stars lost their light
It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight

I begged the sky for just one cloud
To send the rain fallin' down
But if all the angels cried a million tears
And they never let up for a million years

That ain't nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
Well, it might come close, but not quite
If the sky lost the stars and the stars lost their light
It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight

It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
Well, it might come close, but not quite
If the sky lost the stars and the stars lost their light
It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
It wouldn't be nothin' like the lonely in my heart tonight
