lyrics

Lonely to Lonesome

From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time
Up in solitary for a partnerin’ crime
It’s a distance you measure by the walls that you climb
From lonely to lonesome takes a stark turn of mind

If you don’t know the difference, you ain’t known either one
Not the lonely that hits you when you’ve lost your someone
Nor the lonesome that follows if you don’t come undone
‘Cause one to the other there’s a gauntlet to run

If you see me out smilin', then the lonesome’s kicked in
Maybe lonely got drowned-out by whiskey and gin
Or just a lonesome delusion’s clouded my head again
Either way, I’m surviving, should you ask how I’ve been

From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time
Up in solitary for a partnerin’ crime
It’s a distance you measure by the walls that you climb
From lonely to lonesome takes a stark turn of mind

I’m a lone semantician, you might be thinkin' by now
Why should I parse definitions in a song, anyhow?
Because you find it a joke, dear, to see me furrow my brow
When lonely to lonesome is all the range you allow

From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time
Up in solitary for a partnerin’ crime
It’s a distance you measure by the walls that you climb
From lonely to lonesome takes a stark turn of mind
From lonely to lonesome is a dark stretch of time
