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
But the two lonely people have turned into statues
Yes, turned into statues of stone

The world was their moon once
A yellow balloon once
It held all their hopes and their dreams
But then 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 they'd give all their life, if they knew
The two lonely people sit silently staring
Their eyes looking coldly ahead

The two lonely people sit silently staring
Their eyes looking coldly ahead
