"Lonely Holiday" as written by and Hammond Miller....
It was a lonely holiday.
I was alone; you were away
In Fayetteville, or in another state.
There's so many towns I hate.
When you leave me,
Breaks me like a bone;
But it's never as bad
As when you come home.
I've thought so much about suicide,
Parts of me have already died.

Lonely?
Baby, I'm not lonely.
Baby, I'm not;
I've got my imaginary friends.
Happy?
Baby, I'm so happy.
Baby, I'm so -
I've got my imaginary friends.
And if you don't love me,
Would you please pretend?

It was a lonely holiday.
I was alone; I was afraid
The bedroom walls were closing in -
Must be closing time again.
When you leave me,
Breaks me like the note
That you said got stuck in your throat.
I've thought so much about suicide,
Parts of me have already died.

Lonely?
Baby, I'm not lonely.
Baby, I'm not;
I've got my imaginary friends.
Happy?
Baby, I'm so happy.
Baby, I'm so -
I've got my imaginary friends.
And if you don't love me,
Would you please pretend?
And if you don't love me,
Would you please pretend?

And if you don't love me,
Would you please pretend?

    Song MeaningI think this song is just about being lonely, but at the same time you're not lonely because you have always have yourself to keep you company. Hence the term "imaginary friends."
