Someone To Be Lonely With

when I wake up at 3am, I need someone to be lonely with,
under my breath, under my skin, someone to be lonely with..

I lost my way, I lost my place, I need someone to be lonely with
a momentary fall from grace, someone to be lonely with,
+++ I was thinking aloud, thought I’d figured it out,
+++ now I don’t know, no, I don’t know
+++ all the usual doubts, my mind gets cloudy
+++ I don’t know, no, I don’t know..

but I would trade my soul, & my good name
for someone to be lonely with,
I’ve got no one but myself to blame,
I need someone to be lonely with..
+++ I was thinking aloud, thought I’d figured it out
+++ now I don’t know, no, I don’t know
+++ all the usual doubts, my mind gets crowded,
+++ I don’t know, no, I don’t know..

when I have burned my pack of days, when I have nothing left to say,
will I find love, or pine away for someone to be lonely with?
someone to be lonely with, I need someone to be lonely with…
