"What's Up Lonely" as written by Evan A. Rogers, Carl Allen Sturken and Stephanie Lee Saraco....
Blue, I'm getting kinda close to you
Like a shadow I can't lose
Hey, you've been hangin' with me every day
Now you're gettin' in my way
I know you understand me
But don't ya think that maybe it's time to move on

[Chorus]
What's up lonely
Seems you're my only
Friend who wants to share my pain
Tell me heartache
What's it gonna take
For you to leave me alone today
Just when I think that you're gone
You're in the mirror lookin' back at me
So what's up lonely

Sometimes, I wish you weren't by my side
Can't you find another shoulder, cause I
I want to leave this broken heart behind
We been wastin' too much time
Find someone else to rain on
I'm really getting' tired of singin' this sad song

[Chorus]

Don't want to give you a reason
To hang around anymore
You won't be hurting my feelings
If you find another broken heart you can lean on

    General Commentthose lyrics are wrong.

    Blue, I'm gettin' kind of close to you
    Like a shadow I can't lose
    Hey, you've been hanging with me every day
    Now you're gettin' in my way
    I know you understand me but don't you think maybe it's time to move on

    CHORUS:
    What's up lonely
    Seems you're my only friend who wants to share my pain
    Tell me heartache, what's it gonna take
    For you to leave me alone today
    Just when I think that you're gone
    You're in the mirror looking back at me
    So what's up lonely? (lonely, ooh)

    Sometimes, I wish you weren't by my side
    Can't you find another shoulder
    Cause I, I wanna leave this broken heart behind
    We're both wasting too much time
    Find someone else to rain on
    I'm really gettin' tired of singing this sad song

    CHORUS:
    What's up lonely
    Seems you're my only friend who wants to share my pain
    Tell me heartache, what's it gonna take
    For you to leave me alone today
    Just when I think that you're gone
    You're in the mirror looking back at me
    So what's up lonely?

    Don't wanna give you a reason to hang around anymore
    You won't be hurting my feelings
    If you find another broken heart, you can lean on (ooh)

    Gotta go, gotta move on
    Gotta go, gotta move on
    Just leave me alone

    CHORUS:
    What's up lonely (what's up lonely)
    Seems you're my only (Hey) friend who wants to share my pain
    Tell me heartache, what's it gonna take
    For you to leave me alone today
    Just when I think that you're gone
    You're in the mirror looking back at me
    So what's up lonely?

    Gotta go, gotta move on
    Gotta go, gotta move on (yeah yeah, hey)

    CHORUS:
    What's up lonely
    Seems you're my only (baby, yeah) friend who wants to share my pain
    (tell me what's it gonna take)Tell me heartache (just leave me alone), what's
    it gonna take?

    What's up lonely...(fade)



    anycrap, in thise song the writers are personifying loneliness. so obviously this song is about being lonley to the point where loneliness is like your only friend.

    General CommentIf the lyrics are awful than why do you comment? Anyways, I think the lyrics are okay but not bad at all. This person want's to be with someone but the only thing right by her side right now is lonely. Which is what she is.

    General Commentomgsh,,the first time i heard this i was with my mom and we both looked at each other and bursted out laughing cause...theres this lil lonely-sad-faced-boy that would always follow me around...and try to get me to talk to him...and my mom and dad wanted him gona as much as i did....
    i know its got hardly ANYTHING to do with the song itself ( it has nothing to do with a person)
    but...whatev...LOve It..

    General CommentI think she's singing about that her heart was broken, and heartache is badgering her since then. she sings to her heartache that it shall leave her alone, that it shall "find another broken heart" but that she gets caught by it everytime again. "just when i think that you're gone, you're in the mirror looking back at me".
    that's my interpretation.
