In my solitude you haunt me

With reveries of days gone by

In my solitude you taunt me

With memories that never die

I sit in my chair
I'm filled with despair

There's no one could be so sad

With gloom everywhere

I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad

In my solitude

I'm praying

Dear Lord above

Send back my love

(Very small bridge)

I sit in my chair

Filled with despair

There's no one could be so sad

With gloom everywhere

I sit and I stare

I know that I'll soon go mad

In my solitude

I'm praying

Dear Lord above

Send me back my love
