When I looked into your eyes,
I’m not sure what I could see.
Was it emptiness or love?
I wonder what you thought of me.

On the beach in the scorching summers,
I was searching for a friend.
You were watching but never seeing.
I thought those days would never end.

Lonely hearts, lonely hearts, lonely hearts say goodbye.

I tried to hold my arms out to you.
We didn’t know what to do.
I looked for meaning in your words.
Maybe that’s what you did too.

As I spread my wings and stumbled,
Sometimes you would break my fall.
But as I said goodbye, I wondered:
Had we shared our lives at all?
