Lyrics

Why walk through the night all across town
Why pass darkened windows like the ghost of a man
Why alone in this bar watching time pour out
beyond the blessings of women and the shadow of doubt
Stagnant water at the bottom of the well
Thought you were lonely as me
Rest frozen on the current where wishes once fell
Thought you were lonely as me

Cruel summer starlight on a dark street
Slip through the morning on tired aching feet
Why pretend there's a heart still open
Measure the life in miles forgotten
A current chain of stars too heavy to hold
Thought you were lonely as me
Lost in the pull of the dark ocean calm
Thought you were lonely as me Why hold a séance - I know you won't call
Why hold hands with strangers who don't touch me at all
And walking big circles under a high windy sky,
too weak for anything but goodbye
Still play the game, lost track of the goal
Thought you were lonely as me
No defenses, no denials - just abandon your soul
Thought you were lonely as me
Thought you were lonely as me
I thought you were lonely as me
Lost and lonely as me
