lonely one lyrics – billy squier

light in the window but out in the night it’s a cold world
locked on collision–wrong over right between boy and girl
call it the fashion–but can you deny your vices are one up on you
caught in the patterns–longin’ to fly… sayin’ it’s all you can do

when you’re the only one… you see the lonely one

ashes to ashes, dust into night and a trail of blue
split screens and sidewalks… six strings and nighthawks and someone new
you got your answers and you got some time… but sometimes they run out on you
you got your reasons and you got your lies… but sometimes they leave you
lonely, so lonely… lonely so lie

when you’re the only one… you feel the lonely one
now you’re the only one… you see the lonely one

you try to be certain… you’re certain to try
chasin’ your shadows… changin’ your mind
facin’ those faces again and again and again…

turn from the window and walk through the shadows of love gone by
searchin’ your manner way down inside, still you don’t know why
lost in the mirror you’re hopin’ to find the fountain that’s run out on you
you got your rhythm and you got your lines, but sometimes they leave you
lonely so lonely… lonely so lie

when you’re the only one… you feel the lonely one
now you’re the only one… you see the lonely one

and you go on and on and on
you see the lonely one
and you go on and on and on
you see the lonely one

lonely so lonely… lonely so lie
lonely so lonely… lonely so lie

now you’re the only, only one…
