MAYBE IíM LONELY

From the album AM I REAL OR WHAT (1975)

I look in the mirror

I look a sight

I put on some make up on a Saturday night
Another weekend

Anxiety creepin'

I pull up to the local

Step out of the car

All eyes are open

I sashay to the bar

Ah, the relief, I keep nobody waitin'

And far from the chatter your eyes take me home

Better than spending the weekend alone

 

Hey there! You look lonely
Or maybe I'm lonely and you look good
Could be I've misread that look on your face
Won't you forgive me if I intrude in your moment of solitude

 

I take my bike for a ride in the park

This guy nearly kills me

Hey, this street is closed to cars

All terrored guilty, he breaks the unicorns

I try to console him, tell him he's done no harm
I don't pull no drama

I just faint into his arms

And if this is fantasy I beg for dreamin'

He's so sorry, "Can I take you somewhere?"

Halfway to heaven is somewhere around here

 

Hey there! You look lonely
Or maybe I'm lonely and you look good
Could be I've misread that look on your face
Won't you forgive me if I intrude in your moment of solitude

 

Off through the years the eyes take me home
Better than spending my lifetime alone

 

Hey there! You look lonely
Or maybe I'm lonely and you look good
Could be I've misread that look on your face
Won't you forgive me if I intrude in your moment of solitude

 

You look lonely


Maybe I'm lonely
Maybe I'm lonely, baby
I don't want to spent my life alone
Maybe I'm lonely
