Lyric

Amanda:  Finally it's quiet again now everyone's gone home.
                The loneliness is aching like a cancer in my bones.
                My craving for some company, for someone to have near
                Is no less powerful now than when the others still were here.

                I've had a husband who could never touch that place inside.
                I've had a child, I love like life, but I'm still dissatisfied.
                Family and friends, I have, can't see to fill that void.
                If I could find a real heart-friend, I'd be so overjoyed.

                     Lonely on my own, lonely with a friend,
                     Lonely in a crowd, though I might pretend.
                     There's a place in me, lonely as can be.
                     There's an aching hole in my heart

                Can it be it’s only me who hides this secret shame,
                Who laughs and smiles and wears a mask and plays this shallow game?
                Is there any man who can explain this emptiness?
                Is there any God who hears? That’s ‘no’ again, I guess.

Sam:        Could it be I've found a place in this shattered family,
                Somewhere I can make a difference, someone who needs me?
                I will guide you when the burdens start to take their toll.
                I will be your guardian angel. That will be my role.

                    Lonely on her own, lonely with a friend,
                    Lonely in a crowd, though she might pretend.
                    There's a place in me, that might be the key
                    To fill the aching hole in her heart.

Amanda:       Lonely on my own,
Sam:                                                    Lonely on my own,
Amanda:       Lonely with a friend,
Sam:                                                    Lonely with a friend,
Amanda:       Lonely in a crowd, though I might pretend.
Sam:                                                    Though I might pretend.
Amanda:       There's a place in me,
Sam:                                                    There's a place in me,
Amanda:       lonely as can be.
Sam:                                                    That might be the key
Amanda:       There's an aching hole in my heart.
Sam:         To fill        the aching hole in her heart.

Amanda:  Tired of being strong for Abi, for Abi.
                Tired of being strong for Mandy, for Mandy.
                Tired of being strong for Abi, for Abi, for Abi.
