when i’m lonely lyrics – hootie & the blowfish

eyes like an infant
staring me down
she’ll take anything that’s not tied up
in my glorious prayers

it’s just 4 days ’til sunday
when i say that i’m gone
little one screams, you cry
tell the pain, to leave me alone

it’s just 2 days ’til monday
another week ’til the 4th
is anyone listenin’ or
should i call on the lord?

oh believe me
that sometimes i leave, sometimes i see
then i live a dream that won’t come true
and i struggle with life when i’m lonely

someone called my name
out loud about 4 a.m.
it wasn’t you so i let her in
just to see what she wanted

she left screaming ’cause i
i called her by your name
but the next day she came to call
and we finished our game

alright now
some days i breathe, some days i see
then i live a dream that won’t come true
and i struggle with time when i’m lonely

she’d play piano right at shandon
on the other side of rosewood
you said he wasn’t your type
but you went anyway

you left screamin’ and
you thought you would
call him by my name
oh and you whisper

why do i do this?
i can’t go through this
why do i do this, why?

why oh, compare?
’cause, some days i breathe and sometimes i leave
then i live a dream that won’t come true
and i struggle with life when i’m lonely
