Lonely People, America 1974
"Lonely People" is a song written by the husband-and-wife team of Dan Peek and Catherine Peek and recorded by America in 1974.
"Lonely People" was written within a few weeks of Dan Peek's 1973 marriage to Catherine Maberry: Peek- "I always felt like a melancholy, lonely person. And now [upon getting married] I felt like I’d won."
The lyrics of "Lonely People" advise "all the lonely people": "Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup", a metaphor which Dan Peek thus explains: "It's possible to drink from another's well of experience...and be refreshed.
Happy Valentine's Day to all lovers.
As Dan felt, marriage is a seal of everlasting love, which is strengthened by the blessings and assistance of family and friends.
