Christina Perri - The lonely
Tekst en muziek: Christina Perri en David Hodges
(2011)






2am, Where do I begin
Crying off my face again
The silent sound of loneliness
Wants to follow me to bed



I’m a ghost
Of a girl that I want to be most
I’m the shell
Of a girl that I used to know well



Dancing slowly in an empty room
Can the lonely take the place of you
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Let you go and let the lonely in
To take my heart again



Too afraid to go inside
For the pain of one more loveless night
But the loneliness will stay with me
And hold me till I fall asleep



I’m a ghost
Of a girl that I want to be most
I’m the shell
Of a girl that I used to know well



Dancing slowly in an empty room
Can the lonely take the place of you
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Let you go and let the lonely in
To take my heart again



Broken pieces of
A barely breathing story
Where there once was love
Now there’s only
Me and the lonely



Dancing slowly in an empty room
Can the lonely take the place of you
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Let you go and let the lonely in
To take my heart again
