GOOD LONELY

From The Late Album

 

WHEN SHE WAS STILL A CHILD STAR

AND NOT A GIRL BEHIND A BAR

SHE HAD THEM ON THEIR FEET

AND ON THEIR KNEES

 

PIANO-SIDE SHE STRUCK A POSE

BUT SHE IS SO TWO YEARS AGO

AND NOW SHE TAKES IT

DOWN A COUPLE KEYS

 

DRIVING HOME SHE PLAYS A CHRISTMAS SONG

SAYS IT MAKES HER HAPPY

BUT IT'S FEBRUARY. THE LIGHT IS COLD.

SHE KEEPS ON TRYING

 

'CAUSE SHE'S ONE OF THE GOOD GOOD LONELY

AND SHE'S GOT YOU DOWN FOR NOTHING

SHE'S GOOD

GOOD LONELY

GOOD, GOOD, GOOD LONELY

 

CAN EVERYBODY HEAR MY LIES

OR WILL YOU WANT THE TRUTH TONIGHT

'CAUSE YOU KNOW I COULD TAKE IT

EITHER WAY

 

IN ALL THE DREAMS YOU DREAMED OF ME

YOU CHOSE THE THING I'D NEVER BE

AND WANTED ALL THE WORDS

I WOULDN'T SAY

 

TO MAKE IT CLEAN
I THREW A STONE OVER MY SHOULDER

I WON IT OVER BUT I WAS SO FAR GONE
I JUST KEpt on DRIVING

 

I WAS ONE OF THE GOOD GOOD LONELY

AND I GOT YOU DOWN FOR NOTHING

I'M GOOD

GOOD LONELY

GOOD, GOOD, GOOD LONELY

 

ARE YOU ONE OF THE GOOD GOOD LONELY

HAVE THEY GOT YOU DOWN FOR NOTHING

AND WHEN EVERYONE has left
LIKE YOU KNEW THEY WOULD

THAT'S GOOD

GOOD LONELY

GOOD, GOOD, GOOD LONELY
