the lonliness is better near now lyrics – bethany joy galeotti

it’s lonliest when you’re here
it’s quietly when you’re right beside me
i don’t say it to hurt you
i just miss the touch of his hand

the lonliness is better near now than to satisfy the crave
the lonliness is better near now than to satisfy the crave and start all over

but i like fingertips on my face
the glances i can retrace in my mind
the holding onto me so i feel it and fall into it
chase the memories away
i know i’m not the same but i’m wishful
and i’m strained and strange
and though i won’t complain i know i stray
i know i stay

an ocean away
a woman at bay
she shoots up a flare and beackons him near
and the closer you get the safer i am
but the further i run to hide me in the dark and

the lonliness is better near now than to satisfy the crave
yes
the lonliness is better near now than to satisfy the crave and start all over

but i like fingertips on my face
the glances i can retrace in my mind
the holding onto me so i feel it and fall into it
chase the memories away
i know i’m not the same
