"The Loneliest Person I Know" as written by and Waymon Boone....
"You wanna feel/you're never walking
You see your feet/from off the ground
and when you leave/there's no one talking
you slowly breathe/and look around

I know/you're the lonliest person I know
just a flag in the wind that wont blow
just a tear rolling down the window

You cut your lip/and now you're freaking
Another friend/becomes a foe
You try to leave/but they offer candy
Another time/you wont say no

I know/you're the lonliest person I know
just a flag in the wind that wont blow
just a tear rolling down the window

You see that I know/you're the lonliest person I know
Just a blade in the grass/that won't grow
Just a hand holding on to let go

Time is a train...
Time is a train...
Leading you nowhere...
Leading you nowhere.

A second page/ you reach a chapter
You're on the phone/but no one's there
Another thing you can't keep after
Another time you're left alone

I know/you're the lonliest person I know
just a flag in the wind that wont blow
just a tear rolling down the window

You see that I know/you're the lonliest person I know
Just a blade in the grass/that won't grow
Just a hand holding on to let go

You see that I know/you're the lonliest person I know
Just a fly living in the back row
Just a slap in the face that wont show"

    General CommentHow can no one comment on this terrifc song?? This is probably their best song in my opinion. You MUST listen to this song, I'm telling you. It is just so dreamy and drifty - not to mention has a chorus that is one of the catchiest I've ever heard. This song is pretty much self-explainatory. He's found a girl that he really likes and thinks she looks very lonely. This girl may not be the most beautiful girl in the world or she has a problem with dealing with herself so she shuts herself off to people. And this guy notices this girl and likes her a lot, but doesn't know how to approach her because of her "lonely" state, but he thinks she's one of the lonliesy people that he knows...and he can't do anything about it...this song could also be about a girl that is lacking self-confidence in herself and secludes herself from the world and does not open herself up to anything new or exciting. Definitely give this song a download cause it's truely a wonderful song.
