Sorry if I seem a little out of it tonight
It's 2 am I just got back from work
Been pulling the late shift at the comic book shop
Every single night this week, but the work's not so bad
All I've gotta do is talk to 14 year olds
I can go out and smoke every couple of hours
And all of the friends I ever had are gone now
But I printed up your picture and I put it on my wall
Lonely all the way down 70th street
Lonely out near my old school
Lonely in the furniture department at Sears
Lonely on Friday Avenue

Even went down to the bus station today
Since I know that my car would never make it that far
But all I had in my pocket was an old train ticket
From back last November when I was in Chicago
So I went to my car, and I turned up the radio
To hear all the guitars on KGGO
And I called them from a payphone to ask them to play
A song by that band you're always talking about
Lonely back behind Comics Castle
Lonely in that free gaming room
Lonely buying sandwiches for a dollar at the Quick Trip
Lonely on Friday Avenue

The last time Jenny dumped me last year
Went to live with that guy over in the Randolph hotel
I never thought I'd ever feel this way again
But now that I met you, well, all of that's changed
Never wish I was Mickey Mantle, never wish I was Dave Mustaine
But they're lonely on Tanglewood Parkway
Lonely four miles from home
Lonely when they're trying to get their cars to start up
Lonely waist deep in the dirty old snow
Lonely on in the taxis on Lake Street
Lonely out on Van Buren, too
They're lonely on every corner back in Cornersville Trace
Lonely on Friday Avenue
Lonely on Friday Avenue
