“Alone” or “lonely” ???

The word “lonely” appeared in the video below and a student asked me what the difference between “alone” and “lonely” was… There is a difference between being alone and being lonely. You can be in a crowd of people at Grand Central Station and still feel lonely. You might use the word alone when you describe the situation: “I feel so alone.” However, you’re in Grand Central freaking Station. You’re not alone. You’re lonely. (explanation from everything2.com) Remember…. you can’t say “I feel alone” … the correct form is “I feel lonely.”
