"Lonely Too Long" as written by Mary Sharon Rice, Wilbur S. Rice and Michael Lawler....
Well, good mornin'
Tell me how'd you sleep last night
You're still smiling
So we must've done something right
Don't feel guilty
Because you turned to me last night

We ain't done nothin' wrong
We've just been lonely too long
No, we ain't done nothin' wrong
We've just been lonely too long

It's only natural
When you've been too long in the dark
To look for comfort
And to warm yourself by the fire
We're just afraid
That we might get our fingers burned

But we ain't done nothin' wrong
We've just been lonely too long
No, we ain't done nothin' wrong
We've just been lonely too long

Nothing's wrong that can't be cured
With a new love
All you need is someone like me to
Be sure of, to be your love

I'll be waiting
Standing right outside your heart
And I'll be watching
For the slightest sign of a spark
And I'll be here
If you should want to turn to me

'Cause we ain't done nothin' wrong
We've just been lonely too long
No, we ain't done nothin' wrong
We've just been lonely too long

We ain't done nothin' wrong
We've both been lonely too long
Oh, just been lonely too long
Both been lonely too long
Just been lonely too long

    General CommentI can't see how no one has commented on this song.

    It's pretty obvious. 2 lonely people, she's telling him it's alright, that what they've 'done' and she's stating to him, that if he should need to turn to her again, she'll be there if he wants her, for another night, or for a new relationship....because they've both been lonely and need to seek comfort within each others arms.

    That's what I get out of it anyways.

    I love this song. Kinda goin through this at the time with someone.

    General Commentand I also want to add, they've both been hurt before, and in seeking comfort in each others arms, are afraid of getting 'burned' again or hurt again. She's saying, what we've done there's nothing wrong with it because it made both of them happy, if even for a short period of time, and if he should want more, she'll be waiting with an open heart and open arms...to love him with all that she is.
