Lonely Without You

( Colin Hay / Cecilia Noël )

Ever since I was 16
I never really had much sense
‘Til you came along and told me
You’d like to stay awhile and hold me
Why did you have to go and leave and
Cross that stupid street
You didn’t even have your shoes on
You had all dirty feet
Now I’m alone and I can’t stop thinking all about you
How can what’s right become so wrong

I tell myself that I’m okay
I kid myself, I’m on my way
But the only thing that I’ve got left’s a little bit of time
I bought myself new glasses
I’m taking salsa classes
But you know, there’s not too many steps that I can do

It’s lonely without you
It’s lonely without you
It’s lonely without you
It’s lonely without you here

I tell my friends that I’m real busy
I drink ’til I feel dizzy
Then I wake up and I remember you are gone
Honey if you’re up in heaven, set the table for seven,
Hey use the good stuff, and I’ll sing your favourite song
Now I’m alone and I can’t stop thinking all about you
How can what’s right become so wrong

It’s lonely without you
It’s lonely without you
It’s lonely without you
It’s lonely without you here
