I Don't Want To Be Alone Tonight

Your phone's gonna ring
in the darkness of night
And you'll rise from the bed where you lay
And you'll answer 'Hello',
and from out of the past
A voice you once loved is gonna say

I don't wanna be alone tonight,
I don't wanna be alone
And I had to call someone who used to care
I don't wanna be alone tonight,
I don't wanna be alone
So say that you still want me and I'll be there

Maybe someday you'll lie there
and look at the rain
Feeling afraid and alone
Feeling of hunger
you just can't explain
And you'll be the voice on the phone

I don't wanna be alone tonight,
I don't wanna be alone
And I had to call someone who used to care
I don't wanna be alone tonight,
I don't wanna be alone
So say that you still want me and I'll be there
