The depth of your dreams
The height of your wishes
The length of your vision to see
The hope of your heart is much bigger than this
For it's made out of what might be

Now picture your hope, your heart's desire,
As a castle that you must keep
In all of its splendor, it's drafty with lonely
This heart is too hard to heat

When I get lonely, that's only a sign
Some room is empty, but that room is there by design
If I feel hollow, that's just my proof that there's more
For me to follow
That's what the lonely is for

Is it a curse or a blessing, this palace of promise
When the empty chill makes you weep?
With only the thin fire of romance to warm you
These halls are too tall and deep

When I get lonely, that's only a sign
Some room is empty, but that room is there by design
If I feel hollow, that's just my proof that there's more
For me to follow
That's what the lonely is for

You can seal up the pain, build walls in the hallways
Close off a small room to live in
But those walls remain, and keep you there always
And you'll never know why you were given
Why you were given the lonely

Some room is empty...
If you feel hollow, that's just your proof there's more you need to follow

The depth of your dreams
The height of your wishes
The length of your vision to see
The hope of your heart is much bigger than this
For it's made out of what might be

When I get lonely, that's only a sign
Some room is empty, but that room is there by design
If I feel hollow, that's just my proof that there's more
For me to follow
That's what the lonely is for

When I get lonely...
Some room is empty...
If I feel hollow, that's just my proof that there's more for me to follow
That's what the lonely is for
...for me to follow, that's what the lonely is for
...for me to follow, that's what the lonely is for
