Fun night at the bar
And now I’m going home
Before I start my car
I put a sad song on

Oh, it ain’t because I’m depressed
You can put my heart to the test
Oh, it just sooths my sould to hear the blues

Yeah, I’m doing well enough I guess
A broken heart’s been laid to rest
I fought to get my demons out of me
When I ponder what my existence sums
Pretty clear what I’ve become
Oh, and its easy enough for you to see
Yeah, Lonely has become a part of me

Others came since you left
And they were nice enough I guess
But when I tried to hold them close
That’s when I missed you the most

Cuz giving up the chase
Has never been this hard
Yeah’ I’d like to start it over again
But I wouldn’t know where to start

And going away from home
Beats coming back alone
When there’s nothing but these empty walls
And silence for company
