This is hard to say
But as I wandered though the lea
I felt for just a fleeting moment
That I suddenly was free
Of being lonely then I closed my eyes
And saw the very reason why

I saw a man with his head bowed low
His heart had no place to go
I looked and I thought to myself with a sigh
There but for you go I

I saw a man walking by the sea
Alone with the tide was he
I looked and I thought as I watched him go by
There but for you go I

Lonely men around me
Trying not to cry
Till the day you found me
There among them was I

I saw a man who had never known
A love that was all his own
I thought as I thanked all the stars in the sky
There but for you go I
