Where do lonely people go?
You're asking me, you'd think I know
They sadly start rebuilding walls
And quickly, quietly withdraw.

But you, what of you?
What do you propose to do?
Live in the past, recall what was
And lonely is as lonely does.

And when I'd lost the human race
I ran home and ran in place
And when my race was finally run
The loneliness had just begun.

But you, what of you?
What do you propose to do?
Live in the past, recall what was
And lonely is as lonely does.

Well, living in the past is rough
Living here today's enough
The future's much too far away
And lonely's with us every day.

When happy's just a state of mind
That you were forced to leave behind
And when your world has crumbled fast
And solitude is left at last.

But you, what of you?
What do you propose to do?
Live in the past, recall what was
And lonely is as lonely does
Lonely is as lonely does.

But you, what of you?
(Lonely is as lonely does)
And you, what of you?
(Lonely is as lonely does)
And you, what of you?
Lonely is as lonely does
Lonely is as lonely does
Lonely is as lonely does
