THE LONELY ONE
(Roberta Heller / Lenny Hambro (m & l))
Kitty Kallen 1956
There is a very quiet girl (boy) they call ‘the lonely one’
There's sorrow in her face and sadness in her eyes
And if you look into the heart within ‘the lonely one’
You'll find it's been deceived by broken vows and lies.
Is it good to have pride, with a longing to hide all your heartaches and fears
Is it wise to be cold, and to struggle to hold back the tears
If you could only see the girl (boy) they call ‘the lonely one’
You'd know that since you're gone, ‘the lonely one’ is me.
You know that since you’re gone
The ‘lonely one’ is me.
Kitty Kallen is best known for her 1954 #1 hit single, ‘Little Things Mean a
