QUESTION OF LONLYNESS PART ONE

MY EYE HURTS ‘COS I CAN’T SEE YOU
MY ARMS ARE EMPTY ‘COS I CAN’T HOLD YOU
MY LIPS ARE COLD ‘COS I CAN’T KISS YOU
MY HEART IS BROKEN ‘COS AM NOT WITH YOU

EVER SEEN THE HEAVEN WITHOUT THE STAR?
EVER SEEN THE EARTH WITHOUT A SHELTER?
EVER SEEN THE SEA WITHOUT THE A SNAPPER?
EVER SEEN A LOVE WITHOUT A LOVER?

OH! NOW YOU ARE GONE

WHY AND WHY AM I WAKING UP?
AT LEAST IN MY DREAM I CAN SEE YOU
WHY AM I WAKING UP INTO THIS CRUEL WORLD
TO WAKE AND SEE THE MORNING AND NOON WITHOUT YOU
HOW LONELY,DREADFUL, PAINFUL AND WASTEFUL IT WILL BE
