LONELY MAN (Robert J. Purvis and Malcolm Evans)

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum***


The tender eyes of someone very close to you

A feeling that we met so long ago

The lonely smile that somehow keeps me company

And comforts me whenever I feel low


CHORUS:

Maybe being a lonely man was my destiny

Holding on to what's past and gone means so much to me

I was just another face you didn't know

Just another chance that I let go


Like empty swings the lonely thoughts of yesterday

Count the passing Sundays one by one

I'd give the world to somehow have you here with me

To chase the rainy days behind the sun


repeat CHORUS


Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum***


I understand the knowing look you gave to me

Reflecting what is shown within my eyes

I'm hoping that your image is reality

And wanting first impressions not to lie


repeat CHORUS

Just another chance that I let go


Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum***

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum***

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum***

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai...

LONELY MAN (Robert J. Purvis and Malcolm Evans)
[Live on WCMF version]

The tender eyes of someone very close to you

A feeling that we met so long ago

The lonely smile that somehow keeps me company

And comforts me whenever I feel low


CHORUS:

Maybe being a lonely man was my destiny

Holding on to what's past and gone means so much to me

I was just another face you didn't know

Just another chance that I let go


Like empty swings the lonely thoughts of yesterday

Count the passing Sundays one by one

I'd give the world to somehow have you here with me

And chase the rainy days behind the sun


repeat CHORUS


Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum

Dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai, dai dai dai da da da dum, dai dai da da da dum


repeat CHORUS


I understand the knowing look you gave to me

Reflecting what is shown within my eyes

I'm hoping that your image is reality

And wanting first impressions not to lie


repeat CHORUS

Just another chance that I let go.
