Tonight Loneliness Surrounds me

Video and song story to come to this

Tonight Loneliness Surrounds Me
(Like the Dark of Night)

Sat at the table we sat last night
Looking at the chair from where you looked at me-
Last night.
Wishing I could see you there now,
Loving eyes. Lovely hair.
It all serves to remind me how much –
I need someone nice like you to care.

Sat at the window where I watched for you.
Looking at the people looking at me
looking for you.
Wishing I could see you there now,
Heart that loves. Soul that cares.
It all serves to remind me how much –
I need someone nice like you to care.

Chorus
Last night it was the wine that was flowing
Tonight it's the tears that are flowin'
Tonight loneliness surrounds me like the dark of night

Sat on the edge of love awaiting your return
Looking inside my soul as my feelings burn
Wishing I could see you there now,
Words so tender, lips that heal
It all serves to remind me how much,
I need someone nice like you to care.

Bridge
Just a tender word in my ear would ease my fear.
People say such ugly things and in my mind it rings and rings
But just a tender word from you can make loneliness stand up and sing.

Piano song by Trev Teasdel Feb 1982 Middlesbrough
