"Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" as written by and John Prine....
You come home late and you come home early
You come on big when you're feeling small
You come home straight and you come home curly
Sometimes you don't come home at all

So what in the world's has come over you
And what in heaven's name have you done
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
You're out there running just to be on the run

Well I got a heart that burns with sorrow
And I got a worried and a jealous mind
How come we have time to borrow
When there's nothing on your mind

So what in the world's has come over you
And what in heaven's name have you done
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
You're out there running just to be on the run

It's a mighty mean and a wicked sorrow
Just passed the evil line today
How can you ask about tomorrow
When your not living here today

What in heavens name has come over you
What on earth have you done
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
You're out there running just to be on the run
