CHRISTINA PERRI


The Lonely Lyrics

2 a.m., where do I begin?
Crying off my face again
The silent sounds of loneliness
Wants to follow me to bed

I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well

Dancing slowly in an empty room
Can the lonely take the place of you?
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Let you go and let the lonely in to take my heart again

Too afraid to go inside
For the pain of one more loveless night
But the loneliness will stay with me
And hold me 'til I fall asleep

I'm a ghost of a girl that I want to be most
I'm the shell of a girl that I used to know well

Dancing slowly in an empty room
Can the lonely take the place of you?
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Let you go and let the lonely in to take my heart again

Broken pieces of
A barely breathing story
Where there once was love
Now there's only me and the lonely

Dancing slowly in an empty room
Can the lonely take the place of you?
I sing myself a quiet lullaby
Let you go and let the lonely in to take my heart again

I love this song. (Also, am I the only one who thinks Christina Perri's voice sounds like Artemis's voice from Young Justice? I am? okay)

A friend of mine and I are going to learn this song. I will sing and she'll play on the keyboard. This song is SO beautiful, it really reflects on me after a breakup...

Christina wrote this song shortly after a break up, when she cut herself off from her friends and family...or so I read. But either way this song is truly beautiful.
