Hyman, Phyllis - Living All Alone Lyrics

There used to be time in my life when we were lovers
And we shared this apartment together just us two
I think of how we planned to get married
Saying love how I used to know you well
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone
Oh no no no whoa

Now I live a single life and I find it's another world
I'm not even the same I'm a different girl
Yesterday I was somebody's baby
Now today I'm a woman on my own
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone

It feels good to have somebody hold you tight
It feels good to have somebody love you right
Who would end all my long and lonely nights?
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all alone
Whoa oh I can't stand this living all, oouu all alone

Oh, I don't want to be alone
Oh weee aaa...
Oh I don't want to be alone
We used to be such lovers
We used to care for one another
I don't want to be, I don't want to be alone
No no, no no
No ooh no
I don't want to be alone
No no no
Need ya, love ya
Come back to me ooh
I love you
Oh please, please come back to me baby
Oouu yeah
I can't stand to be alone
I can't stand it
Don't want to be alone

  1. Mikhail Harvey

    Sada brought me here !!!

  2. STUDIO BENCIVENGA Marcus Bencivenga

    the definition of class : Phyllis Hyman !

  3. Melody Jackson

    Classy in every way !

  4. Melody Jackson

    Someone said that beyounce's butt is booty lishes, but he never said she was pretty ! Men are caught up in perversion- it doesn't matter to them about looks, as much as gradifying theirselves.

  5. Melody Jackson

    I am sad how much our country has been destroyed because of one woman in Hollywood 😢😭 who said plainly that she wanted to teach our daughters to be suductresses, which has lead our country into all types of perversion. Sex trafficing, and child molestation, and child sacrificing. And witchcraft. I decided to write this because- some many look at this woman married to Jay z. As an icon - but where character is concern and looks, I'd rather be Phyllis human.

  6. Tracy Skins

    My song,my album, & My Girl!!! Damn I miss her.

    i love her music. however if you listen closely you can tell its a beautiful man's voice. it takes a little time to discern the male tone, but once you hear it, you will realize that most of the great female singers are/were men.

  67. loose screws

    Found dead in a hotel room: Whitney Houston, Phyllis Hyman, Vesta Williams. All were alone within themselves at the time but each had many fans who loved them. All beautiful ladies with beautiful voices.
    The music industry is hell.

  78. Garfield Burns

    Phyllis was a very beautiful and misunderstood lady who was demonized by her own personal challenges.One wonders if a good understanding man could have been there to comfort her,and how better her life would have been. Supremely enthralling voice was her.rip queenie.

  83. Bluerosefire

    I feel you queen.

  84. Just me Mary

    Oftentimes mental illness is manifested as evil, when it can also be displayed as "beautiful!" In the case of Lady Phyllis Hyman, it came off as beautiful through her vocals. We her fans benefited from her sadness, while all the long she probably struggled daily. I often wonder did those close to her recognized her depression, the depression that ultimately "took" her life.

  85. shaka

    I've always been a song fan more so than an artist fan. Never cared one way or another about their personal lives. When I heard of her death it affected me as though she was a close relative. I read every article I could get my hands on about her untimely death. Today I still shake my head and wonder why????

  86. Al Person

    We dont have singers like this anymore

  87. Denise S

    Here in 2019 cause they do not make music like this. this woman omg she is a legend her voice is sublime.

  88. Coryyonna pree

  89. Coryyonna pree

    I love Phyllis Hyman and still do who's still listening to this song ❤️ by her n August of 2019

  90. Barry Hayes

    I would've ease the pain kiss it away. Y

  91. Selena Chism

    She was a beautiful woman and very talented her legacy and memories will forever live on I love you Rest in Heaven

  92. Dorrette Young
