King of Lonely

Some days nothing seems to fit right
Screw down the lug nuts
Tighten down that ankle bone
Gotta run now

Sometimes it helps to call
Sometimes the telephone carries me across
The depths of a life I can not fathom

Some days I get the machine’s whirring
Some days, all I want is the machine’s whirring

Don’t pick up the phone
I’ve just got a song to sing,
I’ll record it for you later

Cos I’m the king of empty
I’m the queen of sorrow
I’m the prince of New Orleans and the
Princess of tomorrows

I’m hoping you wouldn’t be there
What would I really have to say?

I just want to sing along
Just want to sing out this sorrow
But I’ll never be honest with you

So if you’re there
Don’t pick up the phone
Let me sing out this song

It’s a connection without connecting
Commitment without committing
It’s me saying I don’t want to be alone but I’m alone
And I always choose it

So find me a gilded crown
Buy me an ermine robe
Fur cuffs decorated with ashes
cause I’m the loneliest woman in the world
I’m the queen of empty
I’m the king of sorrow
I’m the prince of New Orleans
And the princess of tomorrows
King of Lonely
