Perry Como - "Traveling Down A Lonely Road (Love Theme from La Strada)" lyrics

Why am I alone'
Why am I alone,
Traveling down a lonely road'

Darling, can't you see'
I don't wanna be,
Traveling down a lonely road.

If you would open up your heart
And let my love come shining through,
You'd know how much
I wanna walk the road with you . . .

Won't you understand'
Won't you take my hand'
It's been such a lonely road . . .

If you would open up your heart
And let my love come shining through,
You'd know how much
I wanna walk the road with you . . .

Won't you understand'
Won't you take my hand'
It's been such a lonely road . . .

Such a lonely road . . .
