Lonely is a town
On a night like this
Where the city moans like a neon sign
Just flickering to try and stay lit

And the moon looks like a hole
Cut out of the sky
And shining through is a beacon of light
Somewhere from the other side

The ghosts are out
Their dancing among the living
If you listen you can hear them howl

And I feel like an orphan
Wanting to know
Where is home

I've been drug through the churches
Felt trapped like a dog on a chain
You can run as far as you want to
But something's pulling you back again

Because lonely is a town
When your floating through space on a stone
And nobody knows where we're headed
Maybe back to where we belong

The wind only blows
'Cause it's got nowhere to go
To call its own

You don't need a soothsayer
To tell you how this life's going to go
It starts just like you remember it
And how it ends nobody's going to know
But your momma, she'll always be your momma
No matter what kind of trouble you get in
And your daddy may have never told you that he loves you
But it doesn't mean he never did.
