In my solitude you haunt me
The reveries of days gone by
In my solitude you taunt me
With memories that never die

I sit in my chair filled with despair
Nobody could be so sad with gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know I know that I'll soon go mad

In my solitude I'm praying
Dear God above send me back my love

I sit in my chair filled with despair
Noone could be so sad gloom everywhere
I sit and I stare
I know that I'll soon go mad


In my solitude in my solitude I'm praying
Dear Lord above send me back my love
