Lonely
Lyrics
Lonely
by Christina Meyer and David Werhane©

Verse 1
She remembers the second she heard the news
Her heart sank as the doorbell rang
It had been 3 long days since her little girl
Had vanished without a trace
The policeman said her baby was gone
Words that hit her heart like daggers
Immediately the tears began to fall
She began to wonder

Chorus
Is it as lonely in heaven as it is on earth
Do the angels cry like we do
Do they feel the pain of a broken heart
Is it as lonely in heaven as it is on earth

Verse 2
She stands at her daughter's bedroom door
Everything is still in its place
Toys are scattered all over the floor
Just can't put them away
She keeps hoping this is a bad dream
That she'll wake up from
She opens her eyes to the reality
Her baby's still gone

Chorus

Bridge
She knows they'll be reunited someday
And she can't wait to hold her
But that doesn't stop the pain
She continues to wonder

Chorus
