Lyrics

there are no flowers in his house
there are no paintings hung on the wall
there is no fire

oh he is the loneliest man in the world

he never knows what the time is
or the day or the month of the year
time means nothing to him

there is no sunshine in his house
he never draws the curtains at
all he lives in his own world
because he is the loneliest man in the world

he doesn't have any friends
nobody likes him at all
he is so weird because
he is the loneliest man in the world

he is the loneliest man I've ever seen
he doesn't speak at all
but inside I know a voice must scream
lLet me out, let me out
