alone too long lyrics – hall & oates

just a little boy lost looking for a lamb in the all night city
living in his lonely limousine
and though he never has to worry
he’s the only one and only one, he’s ever gonna need
absolutely he’s in definite need

of a woman, child and some better kind of love
when the hot town’s hurt him
and he knows how happy he could be

but he don’t know if he can make it
between the money and another lonely night
now the time has come, got to stay or run
now the time has come

ooh maybe we’ve been alone too long
you don’t want to be lonely
oh maybe we’ve been alone too long
you don’t want to be lonely

another pretty face, another body ache
still awake three-thirty
dial another number
no one home

so then he wastes his time with tv
and he wonders if he lost the only one
and wonders if he’s free
too afraid to see how alone he could be

ooh maybe we’ve been alone too long
you don’t want to be lonely
maybe we’ve been alone too long
you don’t want to be lonely

we’ve been alone too long
i know you don’t want to be lonely
don’t want to be lonely
don’t want to be lonely
don’t want to be lonely, lonely
you don’t want to be lonely

ooh maybe we’ve been alone too long
you don’t want to be lonely
maybe we’ve been alone too long
you don’t want to be lonely

don’t want to be lonely
don’t want to be lonely
don’t want to be lonely, lonely
you don’t want to be lonely

baby baby want to work it out together, yeah yeah
you don’t want to be lonely
don’t want to be lonely, lonely
you don’t want to be lonely
