Sometimes I’m sad and I don’t know why
I sit under the stars and I almost cry
And at times like these, you know,
I’m lonely and I wanna die
When you’re looking for a cigarette to ease your pain
And your life’s a drag and you work in vain
Burn down your office and walk out into the rain

Life is short, you’ve got to look around
Pretty soon, you’ll be all grown up
With dead-eyed kids and a life of hell
Stick with me and we’ll feel swell

Lonely hearts company
Selling shares in sympathy
Lonely hearts company
Share with me your misery...

Well I don’t like to smoke, cause it takes your cash
And I don’t roll notes, cause I ain’t that flash
But at times like these, you know, I feel like getting trashed
Yet the thing about you, is that you see me through
And I can sit around and just talk to you
This world is such a cynical place, people can be so cruel

Life is short, you’ve got to look around
Pretty soon, you’ll be all grown up
With dead-eyed kids and a life of hell
Stick with me and we’ll feel swell

Lonely hearts company
Selling shares in sympathy
Lonely hearts company
Share with me your misery (x2)
