Only The Lonely

Writer(s): Jimmy Van Heusen / Sammy Cahn

Each place I go only the lonely go, some little small cafč
The songs I know only the lonely know
Each melody recalls a love that used to be
The dreams I dream only the lonely dream
Of lips as warm as May, that hopeless scheme only the lonely scheme
That soon somewhere you’ll find the one that used to care
And you recall each fun time, those picnics at the beach when love was new
It well could be the one time, a hopeless little dream like that comes true
If you find love hang on to each caress and never let love go
For when it’s gone you’ll know the loneliness, the heartbreak only the lonely know
