(Response to country song, How does someone get so lonely)

How does someone get so lonely?

How does someone get so sad?

How does someone get so lonely

that thoughts of dying make them glad

Because getting up each morning

is getting harder day by day

Facing demons and loneliness

and a pain that won’t go away

Don’t waste another day of light,

Give up on this lonely plight

I don’t want to wake another God damn day,

With nothing left to fight

Deep inside I want to live,

But I’ve nothing, nothing left to give

Let me close my eyes and fade away,

Not face another lonely, lonely day like today

and day by day inside

When a soul has lost its way

and you just don’t care to be that pretty gal

Must I, struggle though tomorrow,

So you won’t feel bad today

It’s just another lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely day

like today

With inner demons that no one sees,

Fears that bring him too his knees

No one to talk to and no one who cares

That’s how you get that lonely,

When thoughts of dying make you glad

That’s how you make that awful choice,

To not live out another day without a voice

You feel that dying will bring you peace

or at least a long, long quiet sleep

Take some pills for peace of mind,

Jump off a bridge just in time

All your troubles will go away,

you won’t suffer through another day

But when we cry out for another chance,

Someone please hear our cries.

We don’t ask for sympathy

Just an ear to let me cry sometime

and another chance is all to show you how I feel

For I don’t want to be this lonely,

I don’t want to feel so sad

I don’t want to have these thoughts of dying make me glad
