LYRICS

 
SOLITARY LOVERS
(Wright/Crickmore/Nelson)

 
Late in a cold November
Heard a sound to change our lives
Echoing round the houses
To some it came as no surprise

We are the only people
We are the only two
Become two solitary lovers
Confined in a single room

Faces appear at windows
Hear them knocking on the door
Don't let them in, don't let them
Cover your ears forget you saw

We are the only people
We are the only two
Become two solitary lovers
Confined in a prison
Listen, I'm talking to you

We are the lonely people
We're losing all we knew
And all our dreams and rages
Amount to nothing now
We are the lonely people
We're losing all we knew
And if it matters to you
We've lost our spirits too
Become two solitary lovers
Was that a shout of victory?
On a ?????? that no one fought
We could be free or frozen
Oh, cover your ears forget you thought

We are the only people
We are the only two
Become two solitary lovers
Confined in a prison
Listen, I'm talking to you

We are the lonely people
We're losing all we knew
And if it matters to you
We've lost our spirits too

We are the lonely people (hey, hey, hey)
We are the lonely people (ooh)

(repeat last two lines to fade)
