I’ve been lonely but not lonelier than Him
I’ve been lonely but not lonelier than Him
When I’m lonely still I know
He’ll forgive me yes it’s so
I’ve been lonely but not lonelier than Him
I’ve been sorry not sorryer than Him
I’ve been sorry not sorryer than Him
When I’m sorry I remember
That he loves me
And I’m better

I’ve been sorry not sorryer than Him
It doesn’t matter if I’m wrong it doesn’t matter if I’m right
He’s with me at the break of dawn
He’s every star that shines at night
I’ve been happy but not happier than Him
I’ve been happy but not happier than Him
When I’m happy skies are blue
I forget him still it’s true
I’ve been happy but not happier than Him
But not sorrier than Him
But not lonelier than Him
