"Desperate Ain't Lonely" as written by and Caitlin Cary Ryan Adams....
I try not to drink,
'cause if I sit and think I'll go crazy
Desperate ain't lonely
Though I've been high
Pockets are empty
In the daytime I'm lonesome in the nightime I'm sad

The letter I wrote,
Took words from my throat I was saying
Lay on the roadside
I guess the mailman was drunk
The message was urgent
How lazy a state where you don't live no-one

So I try not to drink,
'cause if I sit and think I'll go crazy
Desperate ain't lonely
Though I've been high
Pockets are empty
In the daytime I'm lonesome in the nightime I'm sad

    General Comment"I guess the mailman was drunk"… Classic line by Ryan Adams. (Oh, and the last line to that verse should be "Now it lays in the state where you don't live no more.") Caitlin Cary's voice meshes perfectly with Ryan's on this tune. Great song off a great album.
