Lonely Night - Poem by Bill Simmons

The right hand needs to know what the left is doing
Although sometimes I think it’s along just for the ride
You wake up in the dark, alone with a broken heart
And you find it will take something else to make it right

The left hand sees the tears as they fall
The right hand caught each one but would never tell
You knew something was wrong, the right hand knew all along
Now in darkness the tears they fall as you live through hell

The right hand needs to know what the others doing
Sometimes we need to talk so we can understand
Sometimes we need to just say hey, as we catch a tear that way
And try to dry away the eyes if can

Sometimes we need to say, everything’s all right
And comfort if we can stand by her side
The left hand needs to know what the other’s doing
And let us know, tell us so, what’s going on inside

The right hand needs to know what the left is doing
Although sometimes I think it’s along just for the ride
It needs to let us know before the tears they flow
And we find ourselves all alone on a lonely night.
