  • like a lone star
    in a desolate sky
    or an empty chair
    at a family table

    like a sick child
    flushed with fever
    or an old old man
    wandering confused

    that lonesome feeling
    i know so well

    a deserted street
    in a crowded city
    or a letter returned
    no forwarding address

    that lonesome feeling
    i know so well

    discarded like flowers
    crushed in the gutter
    like a scratchy record
    playing over and over
    such a sad refrain

    that lonesome feeling
    I know so well
