lyrics

here come lonely days
it's like taps being cut off
on saturday night
here come lonely days
i've been wishing that i wasn't
such a parasite
i dialed your number twenty times
and i know that it ain't wrong
lately it occurs to me
this time you're really gone
i'm so lonely

here come lonely nights
i been sending out distress signals
morse code and the light
here come lonely nights
this bed's become an ocean
and there is no land in sight
i dialed your number twenty times
and i know that it ain't wrong
suddenly it dawns on me
this time you're really gone
i'm so lonely

you know all my secrets
you know all my crimes
my degree of treason
and my sick state of mind
but your love is like a canon
ripping through the dark
once i used to stagger
now i've learned to walk
and i'm so lonely

Jesus Jesus it's my hour of pretense
i pray it would be followed
by heartfelt repentence
my cranium's a battle zone
there are land mines in my skull
break into the compound and take no prisoners
'cause i dialed your number twenty times
and i know that it ain't wrong
lately it occurs to me
that you were never gone
when i'm lonely
