LyricsEdit

BSB:
Show me the meaning of being lonely

Brian:
So many words for the broken heart
So hard to see in a crimson love
So hard to breathe
Walk with me, and maybe

A.J:
Nights of light so soon become
Wild and free I could feel the sun
Your every wish will be done
They tell me...

BSB:
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are
There‘s something missing in my heart

Kevin:
Life goes on as it never ends
Eyes of stone observe the trends
They never say forever gaze, if only

Nick and Kevin:
Guilty roads to an endless love (BSB: Endless love)

Nick:
There’s no control
Are you with me now
Your every wish will be done
They tell me

BSB:
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
(Tell me why) Tell me why I can’t be there where you are
There’s something missing in my heart

Howie:
There’s nowhere to run
I have no place to go
Surrender my heart, body and soul

BSB:
How can it be you’re asking me to feel the things you never show

Brian:
You are missing in my heart
Tell me why I can‘t be there where you are

BSB:
Show me the meaning of being lonely
Is this the feeling I need to walk with
Tell me why (Brian: Tell me why) I can’t be there where you are
There’s something missing in my heart (Brian: Cause you are missing in my heart)

Show me the meaning of being lonely (Brian: Being lonely)
Is this the feeling I need to walk with (Tell me why)
Tell me why I can’t be there where you are
There’s something missing in my heart
