You've already found love -
you come to me for comfort,
but I'm a little too close -
too close for just comfort.
But how could you know?
You've never been alone.
Oh no, you've never been alone.
Oh no, you've never been alone
in the night time.

I'm not someone who knows -
I'm just the one who's learning
inside you there's aching,
but aching is not yearning.
But how could you know?
You've never been alone.
Oh no, you've never been alone.
Oh no, you've never been alone
for a lifetime.
