"Never Be Lonely" is a song by The Feeling. It is the third single from their debut album Twelve Stops and Home, and was released on 28 August 2006. It entered the UK Singles Chart at #24 on 27 August 2006 based on download sales alone. The following week it climbed to #12 as a physical single was now available. The song climbed into the top ten of the UK singles chart in its third week, peaking at #9. The song's electronic organ touches are reminiscent of Supertramp, a band The Feeling have stated as one of their major influences.

The B-side "All You Need to Do" originally appeared on the original "Fill My Little World" release.

The setting of the video switches from desert to commuter scenes such as the London Underground, changing back and forth with the varying mood of the song.

It has sold around 96,700 copies in the UK since its release.

It was nominated for Best Track at the 2006 Q Awards, along with Arctic Monkeys' "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor", Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars", Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" and Scissor Sisters' "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'". "Crazy" eventually won.

For several weeks in November, Heart 106.2 shortened the song considerably by shaving the stuttering section which occurs in the chorus from the song.

The single was also released on uniquely numbered 7" vinyl.
