"Lonely Planet Boy" as written by and David Johansen....
It's hard
It's so hard

And it's a lonely planet joy, when
The song from from the other boys, that's when
I'm a lonely planet boy
I'm tryin', baby, for your love

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah

Oh, you pick me up
You're out and drivin' in your car
When I tell you where I'm goin'
Always tellin' me it's to far

But how could you be drivin'
Down by my home
When ya know, I ain't got one
And I'm, I'm so all alone

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah

Oh, it's a lonely planet joy, when
When the song from your other boys, that's when
I'm a lonely planet boy
I'm tryin', I'm cryin'
Baby, for your love

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah
Oh, it's so lonely
Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah

Oh, can't you hear me callin'
I'm a thousand miles away
And I don't want to stay
I'm thinkin' words I gotta say

'Cause I want to be there witcha
And I know what to bring
I remember, from the days
You got over, everythin'

Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah

Oh, it's such a lonely planet joy
When the song from your other boys, that's when
I'm a lonely planet boy
I'm tryin', oh I'm cryin'
Can't ya see I'm dyin'
Baby, for your love

Whoa, whoa, yeah
Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah
Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah

Now you're a little runaway

    General Commentthis song is about being addicted to heroine,
    he has no place to live,
    and likes to be high all the time.
    the message kinda reminds me of David Bowies
    space odity, I guess he dies from his addiction in the end.
    cause now your lonley.
