Alison Moyet — For You Only lyrics

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 it's face.

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

But as I look around me Ijust 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
Ill 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 it's 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 -
