Jermaine Jackson - Lonely Won't Leave Me Alone Lyrics

Why do I seem to be
Caught up inside a dream all my life
It's always been my shadow and me
Over my shoulder
There's always a voice somewhere
Saying I never should try to set my heart free

I wish that love would come
And take me in her arms
Show me what I've never known
Where I could hold someone
And words like right and wrong
Would just fade away like yesterday

Lonely won't leave me alone
Lonely won't leave me alone
Why, tell me why
Won't even let me fall in love

Oh... ho...
Everywhere I go
Always by my side
Lonely won't let me fall in love, no

I try to say I love you
But the words won't come through
In my eyes see all the tears and sad memories
Why can't I start out new
And leave that old feeling too far behind

I guess that lonely needs company

Around each bend of road
I'm thinking that in time
There will be that rainbow's end
Or when I follow those
Self illusions I find
And it's only lonely and me again, ooh...

Lonely won't leave me alone
Lonely won't leave me alone
Why, tell me why
Lonely just keeps my heart out of touch

Oh... ho...
Everywhere I go
Always by my side
Lonely won't let me fall in love

(Lonely won't leave me alone) Won't leave me alone
(Lonely won't leave me alone) Oh, no
(Lonely) Won't even let me fall in love

(Lonely won't leave me alone) I wish that love would come
(Lonely won't leave me alone) Take me in her arms
(Lonely) Lonely won't let me fall in love

(Lonely won't leave me alone) Won't leave me alone
(Lonely won't leave me alone) Ooh, I know
(Lonely) Lonely won't let me fall in love, no

  19. Cardiffe Morgan

    I heard he wrote this song after he left his brothers cause he was really missing his brothers and he felt alone and the song just came to him. Jermaine is a very good song writer underrated imo

  20. padma salam

    Although the masses will disagree, I am sorry, but Jermaine is a much better singer than Michea was. There is something magical and appealing about his voice. Love it. By the way, Jermaine was quite a looker back in his younger years.. .....................xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

  79. BotsConsandJedis

    Very Michael Like--But Jermaine was better at singing love ballad than his younger brother.

    Gerard Jones

    better then michael,dream on

    padma salam

    BotsConsandJedis That’s what I have always said, but the masses disagrees with me. Jermaine’s voice in pure gold, whilst singing love songs. Micheal is an authentic pop singer.

    padma salam

    Gerard Jones Yes, Jermaine is a better singer than Micheal was. Unfortunately, he is underrated and didn’t get his fair dues. Bad luck I suppose.......................xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

    ABC 123

    Most underrated singer.

    Nicky Jenkins

    Toni Braxton and Mariah Carey doing this as a duet would be great
