It Gets Lonely Early

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Jimmy Van Heusen
(from the Album: September Of My Years)

When you’re all alone, all the children grown, and, like starlings, flown away
It gets lonely early, doesn’t it? Lonely early, doesn’t it? Ev’ry single endless day
When your twilight nears, and one face appears, turning winter years to May
It gets lonely early, doesn’t it? Lonely early, doesn’t it?
Still the old heart’s young enough to say
“It was really more than lovely, wasn’t it? Truly lovely, wasn’t it?”
Ev’ry single lovely day
