Swore the day you left me
That I would never fall in love again
Cause when you love somebody
They're only gonna hurt you in the end
So I wrapped up all my memories
And I put them on a shelf
And I find that after all this time
I've been living by myself

[Chorus:]

But I need a heart to come home to
Someone I can tell my secrets to
I need a heart to hold on to
I need a sweet, sweetheart like you

I can buy the groceries
And I can cook them on my own
I can pay the bills
But I don't wanna lie here all alone
This lonely old apartment
Feels just like a prision cell
When I get that empty feeling
That I know all too well

Repeat chorus

(Tag)

Something happened
The night you kissed me
My will to love
Was born again
Your tenderness
Oh, it has convinced me
What a lonely fool I've been

Chorus
