LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
I need to feel your heartbeat when you say you love me
I don't want to hear it, if it's something that you don't mean
If I had to leave you now, there would be an empty space
It doesn't matter anyhow
You can take your things and go your own way

[Chorus]
And there's two more lonely people in the world tonight
Baby, you and I are just two more lonely people
Who gave up the fight
Yeah, wrong or right
Well, you know my heart is aching
You don't have to break it
If love don't change your mind
Then there's two more lonely people, tonight

[Verse 2]
I don't want the pictures, I don't want your sympathy
We don't have to be friends, we don't have to be enemies
In my head I break it down and I'm absolutely sure
That you and I could work it out
Or we could kill the lights on what we had before

[Chorus]
And there's two more lonely people in the world tonight
Baby, you and I are just two more lonely people
Who gave up the fight
Yeah, wrong or right
Well, you know my heart is aching
You don't have to break it
If love don't change your mind
Then there's two more lonely people

[Bridge]
Well, we got something special that should be enough
Nothing is predictable when it comes to love
Maybe lately, baby, it's been a little rough
But if you walk away tonight

[Breakdown]
We'll be two more lonely people in the world tonight
Baby, you and I are just two more lonely people
Who gave up the fight

[Chorus]
And there's two more lonely people in the world tonight
Baby, you and I are just two more lonely people
Who gave up the fight
Yeah, wrong or right
Well, you know my heart is aching
You don't have to break it
If love don't change your mind
Then there's two more lonely people, tonight
