Please lock me away And don't allow the day Here inside where I hide With my loneliness I don't care what they say I won't stay in a world without love Birds sing out of tune And rain outside hide the moon I'm OK, here I'll stay With my loneliness I don't care what they say I won't stay in a world without love So I wait and in a while I will see my true love's smile He may come, I know not when When he does I lose So baby until then Lock me away And don't allow the day Here inside where I hide With my loneliness I don't care what they say I won't stay in a world without love So I wait and in a while I will see my true love's smile He may come, I know not when When he does I know So baby until then Lock me away And don't allow the day Here inside where I hide With my loneliness I don't care what they say I won't stay in a world without love I don't care what they say I won't stay in a world without love
