Lyrics / Paroles


Chorus:
Ask The Lonely
Ask The Lonely
(Just Ask The Lonely)
Ask The Lonely
Just Ask The Lonely, baby

When you feel that you
You got the strength to make it on your own
People let me tell you now
That no one here will get the love
To make it on their own
"You tell ´em Michael"

Just Ask The Lonely
They know the hurt and the pain
´Cause losing a love
You can never, never again

Chorus:
Ask The Lonely
Ask The Lonely
(Just Ask The Lonely)
Ask The Lonely
Just Ask The Lonely, baby

The young and foolish
Lough at love
Oh, will slowly run away
Confident and sure that faith
Will bring another love their way
Somehow, some day
"Tell ´em, Mike!"

Just Ask The Lonely, yeah
How many a heart can yearn
For losing a love that will never, never return

Chorus:
(Ask The Lonely)
Yeah! Aha
(Ask The Lonely)
(Just Ask The Lonely)
(Ask The Lonely)
(Ask The Lonely)
(They´ll tell you)
They´ll tell you, yeah
Yes they will, baby
(Ask The Lonely)
(Ask The Lonely)
(Ask The Lonely)
(Ask The Lonely)
(Just Aks The Lonely, baby)

They´ll tell you a story of sadness
A story too hard to believe
Got to tell you the loneliest one is me, yeah
Yes, I´m lonely

(Ask The Lonely, baby)
All you got to do is ask me
´Cause I´m so lonely
Yes I am
Yes I am
Yes I am
Oh, baby

They´ll tell you a story of sadness
A story too hard to believe
Got to tell you the loneliest one is me, yeah
The lonely one is me!!
The lonely one is me
is me, yeah!
is me, yeah
I´m the loneliest one
I´m the loneliest one
you see yeah, yeah
Baby, baby, baby, baby
The loneliest one is me!!!
