Mr Lonely

What will you do all by yourself?
No one's left to call your name.
You've hidden your soul up on a shelf.
Your foolish pride is what's to blame.

Mr. Lonely you've got me down so low.
Mr. Lonely I'm pleading let me go.
Mr. Lonely you worry my heart so.

I tried to make life better for you
when other lovers had let you down.
Yet you had not a heart so true;
shattered my world-stomped me down.

Mr. Lonely you've got me down so low.
Mr. Lonely I'm pleading let me go.
Mr. Lonely you worry my heart so.

So now I need to walk away.
If I don't leave I'll lose my mind
It's impossible for me to stay.
I'm begging darling please be kind.
