Howard Jones – Not One Of The Lonely Tonight lyrics

Bring me down to earth
Take this weight from tired shoulders
Kiss me tenderly
Let me drown in waves of your love

You part the trees so I
Can cherish things that matter
Your single voice sounds through
A room of din and chatter
Oh take me home
When the streetlights shine above

Safe in your arms
So simple to me
Safe in your arms
Oh so temporary
Safe in you arms
Oh so tenderly
Not one of the lonely tonight

Flying hectically
Through a cloud of buts and maybes
Passing frantically
Over nights and days unended

You turn my head and laugh
When my world turns sour
You give me strength to pass
Through my darkest hour
Oh take me home
When the streetlights shine above
