Lonely is the night

'Lonely is the night' is the title of a song I often listen to when I am working at my desk. If you love music, enjoy this song with me. Here are the lyrics.

Really thought that I could live without you
Really thought that I could make it on my own
Sent you away yeah I said I didn't need you
I let you go I let you go I let you go
Now I'm so lost without you
Now you're not here and now I know
(chorus)
Lonely is the night when I'm not with you
Lonely is the night aint no light shining through
Till you're in my arms till you're here by my side
Lonely am I
Never thought that I that I would need you
Never thought that I that I'd be missing you
Gotta get you back I just got to find a way now
To let you know to let you know to let you know
That I'm so lost without you
And now this world it ain't just right
(repeat chorus)
I can make it through the day
I can fake it okay
I just smile and pretend
And I tell myself I'll be alright
But lonely is the night
Lonely is the night
(repeat chorus)


The words are so wonderful. Sometimes, my students want me to translate English songs into Vietnamese. I often refuse. It is not because I can't but I think if we translate, we cannot express all the feelings in the songs. Click here if you want to hear the song by Air Supply.
