lyrics

IT GETS A LITTLE LONELY

verse: C F C F Am G C F
chorus: Dm G C F

make me over & i'll make do
nights like these are precious few
quiet, dark, and beautiful
like a wedding or a funeral
well, we learn our lessons the hard way
the hard way; the hard way
from every question you don't say
you don't say...you don't say

[CHORUS]
growing older means you only
get to find out it gets a little lonely

let me down with one long look
they tell me that you wrote the book
but tell me now what kind of crook
breaks the only thing they took?
& you took it just to give it back
in pieces sharp & black
well we learn our lessons the hard way
the hard way – the hard way

[CH]

...find out it gets a little lonely
find out it gets a little lonely
