The two lonely people sit silently staring Their eyes looking coldly ahead The two lonely people once loved and were caring But now it's all over and dead
They don't know what happened They can't think what happened They had something fine of their own

The world was their moon once
A yellow balloon once
It held all their hopes and their dreams
But the time came and broke them Reality woke them
The world's not so pretty as it seems For love that once mattered Is old now and battered But must it be shattered in two

The two lonely people Would give all their life
Yes give all their life, if they knew
The two lonely people sit silently staring Their eyes looking coldly ahead 
The two lonely people sat silently staring Their eyes looking coldly ahead
