"Ask The Lonely" as written by Ivy Jo Hunter and William Stevenson....
Just ask the lonely

When you feel that need
To make it all alone
Remember no one is thinking of
Going alone

Just ask the lonely
They know the hurt and pain,
Of losing a love, you can never regain

Just ask the lonely
Just ask the lonely

The young and foolish laugh at love (Woo hoo)
So they run away (Woo hoo hoo hoo)
Confident and sure that fate (Woo hoo)
Will bring another love their way

(Ah) But ask the lonely
(Ah) How vainly a heart can yearn
(Ah) For losing a love that will never return

Just ask the lonely
Just ask the lonely
They'll tell you

Ooh, Woo hoo hoo hoo ooh

(Ah) They'll tell you a story of sadness
(Ah) A story too hard to believe
Ah, they'll tell you the loneliest one is me

Just ask the lonely
Just ask the lonely

Ask me
I'm the loneliest one you'll see

Just ask the lonely

    General CommentUm.... These are the lyrics to the song of the same name by Journey, not the version by the Four Tops, originally done by Ivy Jo Hunter... Those lyrics are:

    [Background:] Just ask the lonely

    [Levi Stubbs:]
    When you feel that need
    To make it all alone,
    Remember no one is thinking of,
    Going alone

    Just ask the lonely...
    They know the hurt and pain,
    Of losing a love, you can never regain

    [Background:] Just ask the lonely
    [Levi:] Just ask the lonely

    [Levi:] The young and foolish laugh at love
    [Four Tops:] Woo-hoo
    [Levi:] So they run away...
    [Four Tops:] Woo-hoo hoo hoo
    [Levi:] Confident and sure that fate
    [Four Tops:] Woo-hoo
    [Levi:] Will bring another love their way

    [Background:] Aaah
    [Levi:] But ask the lonely....
    [Background:] Aaah
    How vainly a heart can yearn,
    [Background:] Aaah
    [Levi:] For losing a love that will never return

    [Background:] Just ask the lonely
    [Levi:] Just ask the lonely....
    They'll tell you

    [Background:] Ooooh, Woo-hoo hoo-hoo
    Ooooooh

    [Background:] Aaah
    [Levi:] They'll tell you a story of sadness,
    [Background:] Aaah
    A story too hard to believe...
    [Background:] Aaah
    [Levi:] They'll tell you the loneliest one is me

    [Background:] Just ask the lonely
    [Levi:] Just ask the lonely

    [Levi:] Ask me...
    I'm the loneliest one you'll see

    [Background:] Just ask the lonely

    [fade to end]
