Have you listened to the lonely Wind
Blow sadly through the Trees?
Or watched the lonesome Tide roll in
From out beyond the Seas?
Have you ever seen lone Seagulls fly
Across the Ocean’s waves?
Or watched the Shadows slowly fall
Upon a dear Friend’s Grave?
Have you ever walked alone in a Storm
And stood in the pouring Rain?
Did the tears that fell from the Sky Above
Hide your tears of pain?
Have you ever sat in the Night and cried
In a room that was empty and cold?
And wished you had someone to love?
Have you ever been alone?
