BILL ANDERSON lyrics - Lonely Together

BILL ANDERSON
"Lonely Together"

Once upon a time you and I were so in love
The whole wide world was gay and happy then
I don't know how or why our love began to die
Till it vanished like a straw in the wind.

We're side by side but we're lonely together
Clinging to the pieces of a vow
Everybody used to say we were perfect together
But we're lonely together now.

It's a mighty big roof that we've nailed upon our house
For it stretches from your world to mine
It keeps out the rain but it can't keep out the pain
And the tears that I see falling all the time.

We're side by side but we're lonely together
Clinging to the pieces of a vow
Everybody used to say we were perfect together
But we're lonely together now.

Oh, we're lonely together now...
