"For You Only" as written by and Alison/jolley Moyet....
Ready to embrace the day as we both break.
When the light stole in it found me wide awake.
Wasted from a sleepless night, I reach to touch your hair.

Withdraw an empty hand, for you're no longer there.
In between the silence, leaving is an empty space.
Save the ticking of a clock
Whose hands are sweeping past its face.

And I just don't want to be lonely,
Night and day.

But as I look around me, I just feel that way for you only.
I turn my hand to something that would clear my head,
But I could not forget the parting words we shared.
I opened up my mind to all the pictures I could trace.

But I could not recall the contours of your face,
And, oh,
He slipped away before I had the chance to say,
"If I did something wrong, please tell me;
I'll accept the blame."

And I just don't want to be lonely,
Night and day.

For you only.
And I just don't want to be lonely,
Night and day.

For you only.

In between the silence, leaving is an empty space.
Save the ticking of a clock
Whose hands are sweeping past its face.
And I just don't want to be lonely,
Night and day.

For you only.
And I just don't want to be lonely,
Night and day.

For you only.
