Lyrics

i heard you cry
to a lonesome lullaby
the only love is a lonely love
and now you know why

while aglow in dulcet tones
you heard a low, troubled note
though you found yourself unsettled
by the disquieting sound
it didn't get you down
it didn't get you down

home, where you want to be alone
with your lonely little love
and my how you have grown
have you come into your own?
la la la-lonely little hands
of a lonely little man
la la la-lonely little hands
of a lonely little man

the unkindness of raven love
soon becomes
a hole in your heart
where feelings should be
but where everything's been torn apart

la la la la lonely love
lonely little love
la la la lonely little love
lonely little love
la la la la lonely love
lonely little love
la la la lonely little love

i don't want no part of this lonely love
i don't want no part of this love
i don't want no part of this lonely love
i don't want no part of this love
i don't want no part of this lonely love
i don't want no part of this love
i don't want no part of this lonely love
i don't want no part of this love
