A little loneliness
Lyrics
A little loneliness
© 2008 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

A little loneliness is never going to hurt as bad as heartache
A love you never had - you're never going to miss as bad as heartache
A road you never took - is never going to lead you anywhere but home
Where that old loneliness is waiting patiently for you

A little loneliness is never going to hurt as bad as heartache
A kiss you never had - is not as bad as needing more
A little tenderness - is just a state of mind - its something that can't heal
When that old loneliness - is all that you can feel

Chorus
You know that nothing ventured equals nothing gained
You got to give some love to get some love in return
You got to try and touch someone before you'll ever come to know
A little loving now and then - a little tenderness -
Will heal your sorrow

A little loneliness is never going to hurt as bad as heartache - no, no, no
A promise that you never made - you can never break -
No taking back the words that came to mind - that you could never say
Just that old loneliness for company - with you night and day

The time you could not spare will never make a memory -
The secrets you could never share become your destiny
Just like the dreams you could not follow - and the love you could not feel -
Just that old loneliness - loneliness so real

Chorus
You know that nothing ventured equals nothing gained
You got to give some love to get some love in return
You got to try and touch someone before you'll ever come to know
A little loving now and then - a little tenderness -
Will heal your sorrow

A little loneliness is never going to hurt as bad as heartache - no, no, no
A love you never had - you're never going to miss as bad as heartache
A road you never took - is never going to lead you anywhere but home
Where that old loneliness is waiting patiently for you
Where that old loneliness is waiting patiently for you
Where that old loneliness is waiting - patiently -for you
