Dionne Warwick – Let Me Be Lonely lyrics

Oh, let me be lonely
I wanna be faithful
And honest and true to
The one I love, the one I love, whoa

Oh, let me be lonely
I've gotta be someone
He's proud to come home to
Some happy day
What a day that'll be

I wanna be there, be there by his arm
When he comes back to me
If I deceived him even once
I couldn't face him

Oh no, I couldn't face him
If I give in to loneliness and
Hold you tight all thru the night

Oh, let me, let me be lonely, hey, hey
'Cause I love him o-only
Oh, let me be
Oh, let me be, let me be lonely

- Interlude -

I wanna be there, be there by his side
All through my life
And if I ever let him down
I'll have to show him
Whoa, yes, I'd have to tell him
And if I did, what could he do
He'd say goodbye and I would die, yeah

Oh, let me, let me be lonely
'Cause I love you more
Oh, let, oh, let me be
Oh, let me be
Oh, let me be
Let me, let me
Why won't you let me be lonely, yeah

Oh, yeah
Let me be lonely
Uh-huh, yeah
Let me be lonely, yeah...
