A Lonely Place - Tony Bennett

The world can be a happy place
Of stars and cockle shells
Of summer things like garden swings
Of games and carousels

A hundred different pleasures
The heart can not forget
And yet
And yet

The world is such as lonely place
When you are all alone
Your arms reach out to empty space
For dreams you've never known

And in the dawn
In silence I explore
I see the one I've waited for
Beyond a slowly closing door

Oh please don't go
For this I know
I need you so

The world's a lonely place
That's all until you fall in love
