"The Apartment Song" as written by and Tom Petty....
I used to live in a two-room apartment
Neighbors knocking on my wall
Times were hard, I don't want to knock it
I don't miss it much at all

Oh yeah, I'm alright, I just feel a
Little lonely tonight
I'm okay, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

Well I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
Lately I get a faraway feeling
And the whole thing starts again

Oh yeah, I'm alright, I just feel a
Little lonely tonight
I'm okay, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

Well I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
Lately I get a faraway feeling
And the whole thing starts again

Oh yeah I'm alright I just feel a
Little lonely tonight
Listen, I'm okay, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

Oh yeah I'm alright I just feel a
Little lonely tonight
Listen, I'm okay, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

Lonely tonight, lonely tonight, lonely tonight

    General CommentTo me this song is just about going through something that's not exactly the best, but realizing that that's life and not letting it get to you. Just keep your head up and roll with the punches.
