"If You Think You're Lonely Now" is a song recorded and released as a single by American soul singer-songwriter Bobby Womack in 1982. It was released from his album The Poet. The single reached number three for four weeks on the Hot Soul Singles chart. This is significant because Womack released the song during a time when R&B was on a down slope and the charts were largely dominated by dance music.

K-Ci Hailey Version
The song was later revised in 1994 by K-Ci Hailey, which is featured on the soundtrack to the film, Jason's Lyric. K-Ci's version was a pop hit, which peaked to number seventeen on Billboard's Hot 100 and eleven on Hot R&B Singles charts. The song's main hook is also invoked by Mariah Carey in her song "We Belong Together".
