lyrics

Lonely-hearts

His eyes follow her around the room
Day after day
Watching her dive deeper into her gloom
Wasting life away

He knows
He knows all her secrets
Her darkest thoughts translucent
She’s just not getting it at all


He’s wondering if she’ll ever get it right
Lonely-hearts will you start tonight?
Wondering if she’ll ever see the Light inside
Herself.

He watches her waiting by the phone
But it never rings.
Examines her e-dates endlessly
Searching for her king

He sees
Miss Lonely-hearts out of luck tonight
You might as well give up the fight
Turn off the phone
Turn out the light.

Chorus

Warm blue eyes
Long to kiss her
And console her
As he whispers
From his gilded frame.

You’re looking for something
That doesn’t exist
There is no prince or domestic bliss
The American Dream is just that
A dream
Sealed with a kiss.

He watches as she wrestles with her thoughts
Kicking and screaming like a child distraught
Not wanting to believe the awful truth

Chorus

His eyes follow her around the room
Day after day
Watching her dive deeper into her gloom
Wasting life away


He sees
Her table is still set for two
Cheap china and steamy dreams of you
Oh how hope dies hard…..

Chorus
