 Struggling with Deep Song? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

Lonely grief is hounding me
Like the lonely shadow hounding me
It's always there just out of sight
Like a fragling dream on a lightening night

Lonely wind cries out my name
Sad as haunted music in the rain
It's born of grief and born of woe
But I hear it call and I've got to go

Where can I be headed for
The blues call in my north
To lick my heart once more
Love lives in a lonely land
Where there's no helping hand to understand

Why does it bring this hate to me
Why it don't matter why
I only know misery has to be part of me

Never hope to count on love
To be a partner of that heaven above
Never hope to understand
Love is a barren land
A lonely land
A lonely land
