It's A Funny Thing Being Lonely
It's a funny thing being lonely,
When there's nobody else in the room;
It's a lonely thing being lonely,
When the bodies are gone but ghosts loom;
It's a frightening thing being lonely,
Searching for love in the gloom;
It's a soul searching thing being lonely,
With your heart beating boom after boom;
It's a gut wrenching thing being lonely,
When your love is encased in their tomb;
It's such a tiring thing being lonely,
Tracing life so far back to the womb;
And then realizing you're only lonely,
While redressing the deepest of wounds.
