Only the Lonely
Roy Orbison Lyrics


(Dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh oh oh oh ooh-ah-ah, only the lonely)
(Only the lonely)

Only the lonely (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)
Know this feeling ain't right (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)

There goes my baby
There goes my heart
They're gone forever
So far apart

But only the lonely
Know why I cry
Only the lonely (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh oh oh oh ooh-ah-ah, only the lonely)
(Only the lonely)

Only the lonely (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)
Know the heartaches I've been through (ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)
Know I cry and cry for you (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)

Maybe tomorrow
A new romance
No-o-o more sorrow
But that's the chance
You've got to take
If your lonely heart breaks
Only the lonely (dum-dumb-dummy doo-wah)

Man if anyone died of heartache it was Roy Orbison.

lloydhl1

No one is going to top Roy's voice, even Elvis loved this guy's singing!

Emma Duncanson

I'm feeling a bit depressed right now about being lonely and then I listened to Roy and I know i'm not alone.

My Space

He was a talented singer. His voice was so complexing that I did not know if he was a Soprano,Tenor, Baritone or Bass.

David Knopf

If popularity were based solely on talent and feeling, Roy would've been the best-known performer of his generation. My favorite for sure!

I was born in the late 50s and grew up in the 60s. my Aunts and Uncles ''Raved'' about Elvis but I always preferred Roy Orbisons songs as I thought they were more heartfelt and sung with genuine emotion. Thank you for this

Stephen Jerome

the emotion is pure and true

Izzy Gonzales

From what I remember he used to sing with a teenage group called the "The Teen Kings"on one of our local tv channels at 6pm. I would hurry home from school just to hear him sing. Never in my life did I think he was going become such a big star. We even went to some of dances where they played. Those were some great times back then.
