It's an evil wind that blows no good, yeah
It's a sad heart that won't love like I know it should
Oh how lonesome(oh how lonesome) you must be (you must be)
It's a shame (shame, shame) if you don't share your love with me

It's a heartache, yeah (it's a heartache)
When love is gone (baby it's a heartache)
But it's bad (bad) and even sad (sad) oh later on
And there's no one blinder than you won't see
It's a shame (shame, shame) if you don't share some of your love with me

I can't help it, oh no
He is gone
I must try to forget
Because I've got to live on
Oh it's a good thing it's a sweet thing (it's a sweet thing)
To love someone (such a sweet thing)
But it's bad (bad) and even sad (sad) when it's not returned
Oh, how lonesome, how lonesome, how lonesome (oh how lonesome)
You must be (you must be)
I tell you it would be a shame (shame, shame)
A shame if you don't share your love with me (share your love with me)
It would really be a mistake baby (shame, shame) if you don't share
Your love with me (share your love with me)
It would sure be a shame (shame, shame) if you don't share
Share your love with me (share your love with me)

Forever my darling our love will be true
Always and forever I'll love only you
Just promise me darling your love in return
May this fire in my soul dear forever burn

My heart's at your command dear to keep love and to hold
Making you happy is my desire, keeping you is everything of my goal
And I'll forever, ever, ever love you the rest of my days
I'm not gonna, not gonna part from you on your loving ways

I looked at the face of the clock on the wall
But it doesn't tell me, it takes time but it doesn't tell me nothing at all
Face of the clock just stares at me, yeah
It knows I'm lonely, how I am, and how I always will be

I want to cry, cry my heart out
I want my baby back with me
There's nothing but time to give out
Time doesn't mean anything to me

Oh, if you hear me, come on back real soon, baby
Because this clock and I, oh, yeah, we're so lonely in this room

Oh, lonely, lonely, lonely in this room
When I get at night, baby, so lonely in this room
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, so lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely in this room
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
