“If Only You Were Lonely”

Well, I walked home from work

And I was tired as hell

Another day’s come and gone and oh well

Somewhere there’s a drink with my name on it

Well, I ordered a scotch as I bust through them doors

Spilled half on my jeans

The other half on the floor

When I saw you standing by that video game

Well, I ain’t very good

But I get practice by myself

Forgot my one line

So I just said what I felt

If only you were lonely,

If only you was lonely too,

If only you was lonely

I’d go home with you

Twenty push-ups this morning, that was half my goal

Tonight I’ll be doin’ pull-ups

On the toliet bowl

And somewhere somebody’s throwin up

Well, I broke the seal on my door

And I poured myself to bed

The whirlpool spinning around in my head

There was liquor on my breath

And you were on my mind

And I’ll be dreamin of that smile

Without a care in the world

If only you were lonely,

If only you was lonely too,

If only you was lonely

I walked out of the kitchen

I was tired as hell

Another day’s here and oh well

Somewhere there’s a smile with my name on it.
