Now it's easy for to see, 
Why people in life are so lonely 

And you never understood, 
You never really could, 
You were wrong. 

What you were, what you were, 
I couldn't say. 

'cause you left me here behind, 
A stupid state of mind, 
And I'm lonely. 

Yeah, you left me here behind, 
A stupid state of mind, 
And you're gone. 
   
'cause you left me here behind, 
A stupid state of mind, 
And you're gone. 

What you were, what you were, 
I couldn't say. 

It took something hard like this, 
Mistaken to resist, 
And I'm lonely.
