Lonely You
Badfinger Lyrics


When I look into your tearful eyes
I don't know what to do
And though you say that I don't realize
I sympathize with you
Lonely you, only you, yes I do
Lonely you, only you, lonely you

When I ask you just to be my friend
I want to lend a hand
But if we get too close it's sure to end
Oh can't you understand
Lonely you, only you, yes it will
Lonely you, only you, lonely

You will really need a friend
And friends are hard to find
And harder still to keep
Lonely you, lonely me

Lonely you, only you, yes it will
Lonely you, only you, lonely you
Lonely you, lonely you

@Gary Fletcher Ah fuck that vile man!

Phil Terras

Great song. Like how some Badfinger tracks have the piano and organ playing simultaneously :)

Jack Menendez

Another classic Pete Ham song. Like almost all his songs inspired by real life situations, I've always wondered who he was referring to in this song.

"We really need a friend and friends are hard to find" always hits me

Its about a girl he was dating from London named Chloe, who was really enamored of him. He saw that it wasnt going to work out, and he didnt want to hurt her. So he wrote this song to break it to her in a kind and understanding way, telling her they are both part of the human condition because he gets lonely too.
