I'm in this fight and I'm swinging and my arms are getting tired
I'm trying to beat this emptiness, but I'm running out of time
I'm sinking in the sand and I can barely stand
I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I try to be patient, but I'm hurting deep inside
And I can't keep waiting; I need comfort late at night
And I can't find my way; won't you lead me home?
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely

I cry at night 'cause my baby's too far to be by my side
To wipe away these tears of mine, so I hold my pillow tight
To imagine you would stretch your hand looking for mine
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I need your strength when nobody's around
'Cause I'm tired of this emptiness; I think I'm drowning
I can't be lonely no more
'Cause I'm lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
And I'm scared of being the only shadow I see along the wall
And I'm scared the only heartbeat I hear beating is my own
And I'm scared of being alone
I can't seem to breathe when I am
Lost in this dream; I need you to hold me

I'm scared of lonely
I'm scared of lonely
