Porter, Gregory - The Lonely One Lyrics

There is a very quiet boy, they call the lonely one
There's sorrow in his face and sadness in his eyes
And if you look into the heart within the lonely one
You'll find it's been deceived by broken vows and lies

Is it good to have cried with a longing to hide
All your heartaches and fears?
Is it wise to be cold and to struggle to hold back the tears?
If you could only see the boy they call the lonely one
You'd know that since you're gone, the lonely one is me

Is it good to have cried with a longing to hide
All your heartaches and fears?
Is it wise to be cold and to struggle to hold back the tears?
If you could only see the boy they call the lonely one
You'd know that since you're gone, the lonely one is me
You'd know that since you're gone, the lonely one is me

    Here lies my beauty in healing, in words, in time, I am no longer bound to invisible scars that were far worse than physical scars that may be covered. I was in perfectly beautiful then...Desiring that thing we call love.

    Intense, Energy, Awesome serenity - Baring the pain and vulnerability of friendship. Greg has mastered the ancient delivery of emotion in song.

  38. Marina Banks

    Love his phrasing, his voice allows you to believe he has lived each song and lyric.  Captivating.  Interpreting the writers sentiment is what makes the song.  Words, become lyrical and Gregory sends me to a place of love, life and the depths of all the emotion bottled up inside of me!  Bravo.
