You sit in silence 'cause the only radio in your town is Foghat and Creed
You check the mileage and you can't go to college 'cause those books are still so hard to read
And it doesn't seem like anything will change and the mountains make damn sure you're gonna stay
The girls all think you're strange and your parents, they suspect that you're gay

You can't believe you're alone in this trailer as your senior prom is starting
You can't believe you're alone in this trailer as your senior prom is starting
But the loneliest boy in the state of Nevada doesn't feel much like a party

She drives by in the suped-up pick-up of that boyfriend she's got up in Sparks
You won't cry, but you'll punch your locker until the dented metal bears your marks
And just when you're sure she sees you, it turns out she's just waving at a friend
She's too kind to tease you, but she's too good to wind up with you in the end

You can't believe in thise whole goddamn desert, she only lives two blocks away
You can't believe in this whole desert she lives two blocks away
But the loneliest boy in the state of Nevada can't find the right words to say

They're waiting there, waiting for you in the parking lot outside the Odeon
And you're not scared 'cause you've got five shotgun shells that say they won't call you faggot again
They drive off in their I-Rocs and you wipe the face from your tears
These strip malls are like cell blocks and you've been locked up for the past eighteen years

You can't believe you feel so old but when you drive up to Reno you can't get into bars
You can't believe that when you can, it'll be better or heal any scars
The loneliest boy in the state of Nevada is spending the night with the stars

You swear by the gun in your hand your next night alone will be your last
You understand, just like in the past, they're only idle threats
You've got responsibilities and debts and you're not that strong
But if things keep carrying on, they're responsibilities you just might forget

It's getting cold, you pick up your mistakes and walk into the night
It's getting cold, you pick up your mistakes and walk into the night
The loneliest boy in the state of Nevada is gonna be alright
