Lyrics

I was looking for adventure
And the night was fallin'
The darkness was electric
And the shadows were fallin'
I was looking for my baby
In the city by the ocean
I was walking into midnight
I was grooving with emotion, singing
Heaven help
Heaven help the lonely
Heaven help
Heaven help the lonely
On this night
It's you and me only
Heaven help
Heaven help the lonely
I wonder through the station
Saw every kind of stranger
In an of concrete
I was dealing with the danger
I saw figures in the doorway
Heard the whispers of desire
I walk by the cathedral
Heard the singing of the choir
Heaven help
Heaven help the lonely
Heaven help
Heaven help the lonely
On this night
It's you and me only
Heaven help
Heaven help the lonely
I was talking with my baby
Just around midnight
She said, "Come over here, boy
Everything will be alright"
I said, "Yeah, but I'm afraid of
