lyrics

I thought I knew lonesome
Thought we were friendly, but I
Never thought that I would see the day

That lonesome would stop calling on me
And singing sweet sad songs in my ear
And keeping my company

Oh, lonesome, why'd you leave me?
We were just getting to know each other
Sharin' secrets and makin' plans, I'm
Not cheatin', just makin' friends
Oh, lonesome, where'd you run to?
There's no need to be so scarce so suddenly
Hope's just a fad, please, understand

Lonesome was so handsome at first sight
Tall, dark, and stormy with a way
That made me feel at home

But hope walked by and caught alight the coalmine
And my canary heart is comin' up for air
And singing once again

Oh, lonesome, why'd you leave me?
We were just getting to know each other
Sharin' secrets and makin' plans, I'm
Not cheatin', just makin' friends
Oh, lonesome, where'd you run to?
There's no need to be so scarce so suddenly
Hope's just a fad, please, understand

(Ooooh...)

I thought I knew lonesome
Thought we were friendly, but I
Never thought that I would see the day

That lonesome would stop calling on me
But I've got new company, me and hope
We'll try it once again
We'll try it once again
We'll try it once again
