About the Song
Lonely is the night when I’m not with you
Lonely is the night, ain’t no light shining through
Till you’re in my arms, till you’re here by my side
Lonely am I
“Lonely is the Night” talks about the difficulty of dealing with a long-distance relationship. What is a long-distance relationship? Long-Distance Relationship or LDR is an intimate relationship between lovers who are far apart and frequently see each other.
The chorus of the song explains that the narrator had faced difficulties spending the night away from his lover. Being away from our lover is not easy. We only have our gadgets as tools so we can communicate with him/her.
Honestly, some of us think that entering into a long-distance relationship will not work for a lifetime. But for those who were already used to it, their thoughts about LDR is to love their partners harder while they are far away from them.
I, myself salute everyone who is in a long-distance relationship because it is a living proof that distance is not a reason for breakups. I believe that this is only a challenge if we really love someone.
