Downtown never looked so lonely as
it does tonight
And like the wind that's blowing I
long for home tonight

To tell the truth I've never felt so lonely as I do tonight
But I'm alright
I just keep thinking about
the words I want to say to you
Just to tell you how I feel

If I could write down what is written on my heart
I'd give anything to hold you in my arms

To tell the truth I've never felt so lonely as I do tonight
But I'm alright
I just keep thinking about
the words I want to say to you
Just to tell you how I feel

4th Street has never looked or felt so empty
as it feels right now
Not a soul, not a sound has risen from the street tonight, tonight

To tell the truth I don't want to feel this lonely,
this lonely ever again
This emptiness has to end

To tell the truth I've never felt so lonely as I do tonight
But I'm alright
I just keep thinking about
the words I want to say to you
Just to tell you how I feel

Downtown never looked so lonely as it does tonight
I'm alright
Just to tell you how I feel
the words I want to say to you
Just to tell you how I feel
I'm alright
Just to tell you how I feel
I'm alright
Just to tell you how I feel
