Lonely Nights

Another long Friday night
watching television
and feeling alone.


I'm praying to the skies
and I wonder if God
fell asleep on the job
because it's unbearably quiet.


I want a man to
sweep me off my feet
and who will chase away
the shadows that haunt me.


He will stay with me
through the darkness
until the dawn of day.


I long for a love
that lasts forever
and a promise that
won't be broken.


He will give me hope
for a brighter tomorrow
and end my lonely nights.
