"When You're Lonely" as written by and Tammi Kidd Lynn Hutton....
I almost didn't answer
When I saw your number
Don't you know it's 2:18 in the middle of the night
Did you fight with your girlfriend,
Could you not sleep,
Did a strong shot of whiskey leave you feeling weak?

You only want me when you're lonely
You only call me when you're down
You only want me when you're lonely,
But you can't have me now

I don't know what you expected
Did you think I'd let you,
Somehow get the best of me, with some pretty little lies
I've made that mistake, I've let you crawl back in,
But now I don't have the heart to fall for you again

You only want me when you're lonely
You only call me when you're down
You only want me when you're lonely,
But you can't have me now

Don't tell me you love me
Don't say all the right things
You're having one of those nights, and I know what that means
Oh you want me right now
But nothing's really changed, you're just by yourself
And it's late, too late

You only want me when you're lonely
You only call me when you're down
You only want me when you're lonely,
But you can't have me now

You only want me when you're lonely,
But you can't have me now

You only want me when you're lonely,
But you can't have me now

You only want me when you're lonely,
But you can't have me now

    General CommentI think this song is really self explanatory.
    It's about a guy who's cheated on his girlfriend with another girl and the other girl has fallen for him. She's finally finding it in herself to move on and get over him because the way she wants things to be isn't going to be the way things are.
