11. One Of The Lonely People © 2010 Lorrie Newman Keating (BMI)
This song is from the summer of 1977 - the summer before I went in the Army. I was alone, not particularly happy with life in general. It was then that I made the decision to drop out of college (full scholarship for a four-year state university), join the military, leave the valley for a few years and see the world, and then come back home. Little did I know this decision would completely change my life forever, in good ways and bad - I never did come back home, except to visit occasionally. But, oh,
the places I got to see! And - I finally learned not to be lonely anymore...

Lyrics

Your smile is so kind, don’t walk away.
Please stay and talk awhile, please stay.
I’ll tell you why, I can’t let you pass me by -
I can’t face this problem one more day

‘Cause I’m one of the lonely people.
Yes, I’m one of the lonely people.
And I don’t want to be lonely anymore.
Well I’m one of the lonely people -
I’m one of the lonely people
And I don’t want to be lonely any more.

I worked so long so many times
Learned all the reasons and the rhymes
But the only thing love has ever given me
is an aching emptiness down deep inside

‘Cause I’m one of the lonely people.
Yes, I’m one of the lonely people.
And I don’t want to be lonely anymore.
Well I’m one of the lonely people -
I’m one of the lonely people
And I don’t want to be lonely any more.

Please take me far from this place.
Help put a smile back on my face.
No one should see what loneliness can be -
Love, you could be my saving grace

‘Cause I’m one of the lonely people.
Yes, I’m one of the lonely people.
And I don’t want to be lonely anymore.
Well I’m one of the lonely people -
I’m one of the lonely people
And I don’t want to be lonely any more.

No I don’t want to be lonely any more
I don’t want to be lonely any more
