help me lyrics – colin hay

all your born alone and die the same
in between can take awhile
only one drop in the sea of time
sometimes makes it hard to smile

if you find someone to share your life
things are never quite the same
as we traveled, seems like days gone past
and we’ve know so little pain

at this point in time, i stand alone
to the phone i’m holding on
outside people stare as if to say
we know there’s n*body home

hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely

when the papers read that all is lost
only darkness lies ahead
i speak softly and soothe
and chase the fear
and on me, you rest your head

when the nights are hot with heavy air
or it’s freezing to the bone
you may lie drunk in the city square
you may feel lost not for long

hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely

hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely
(when you’re lonely)

hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely
hold me when you’re lonely…
