"Lonely" as written by and Tom Waits....
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely eyes,
lonely face, lonely lonely in your place.
Lonely, lonely, lonely eyes, lonely face,
lonely lonely in your place.

I thought that I knew all that there was to,
lonely, lonely, lonely

Melanie Jane, won't feel the pain.
Lonely, lonely, lonely eyes, lonely eyes,
lonely lonely in your place.

And I thought that I knew all that there was to
Lonely, lonely, lonely eyes, lonely eyes,
lonely lonely in your place, and
I still love you, I still love you,
lonely, lonely

    General Commentwhen i got this song (illegitimately) it was titled incorrectly "closing time".

    i liked it better that way than as "lonely", which is too obvious a title.

    General CommentAfter breaking up and being angry you come to realize you had a part in the breakup as well and that you may still love him/her. Quite obvious.

    General CommentThis is a hard one because the lyrics are so cryptic. I think it's about a guy who feels really content and together. He's singing about that warm feeling you have when you have a lot of love in your life.
