I saw you this morning
sitting at the head of the table
waiting for me
although I held you through the night
you refuse to go
so I skipped breakfast

but as I got in the shower
you were there to wash my back
you caught my tears as I felt you
told me you were going to be around all day
so prepare myself

as I drove to work
you touched me all the way there
getting on my last nerve
I wanted to pull over
kick your ass out
but you wrapped me tight
couldn't move you

got through 8 hours of work
not seeing you much
but when five o'clock hit
you were right there waiting for me at the front
you even beat me to the car

spent the rest of my evening with you
between phone calls
dinner, books, tv
all the bullshit
you put me in the bed
snuggled up real close
even though I turned my back to you

Loneliness why are you here
can't shake you
can't break you
refusing to leave
got  all my time
you're too greedy

closed my eyes in hope that I would lose you
your stronger than I thought, you made it through
I guess I'll get used to you

Loneliness, tell me this
why you do me like you do?
