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 KEEP 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 LIKE YOU KNEW THEY WOULD
THAT'S GOOD
GOOD LONELY
GOOD, GOOD, GOOD LONELY
