"Singing For The Lonely" as written by and Robert Peter/chambers Williams....
Singing for the lonely
You're not the only ones who feel this
So scared of what we're doing
All the time

Here comes wasted head-space
Paranoia Anger, misplaced
Feelings leave me nowhere
All the time

I don't wake up early every morning
'Cause the more I sleep the less I have to say
Scared of you always thinking that I'm boring
Stop me yawning my life away

Tender young confusion
Send black mariah for blue delusions
Lays heavy oh so heavy
On my mind

I'm so sick of people's expectations
Leaves me tired all the time
If your home's full of useless aggravation
Then don't bring it to mine

I seem to spend my life
Just waiting for the chorus
'Cause the verse is never nearly
Good enough
The hooligan half of me
That steals from Woolworths
While the other lives for love

I'm so sick of people's expectations
Leaves me tired all the time
If your home's full of worthless aggravation
Then don't bring it to mine

Singing for the lonely
We're not the only ones who feel this
So scared of what I'm doing All the time

Singing for the Lonely
We're not the only ones who feel this
Scared of what we're doing
All the time

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on 'Sing While You're Winning'. My favorite line is "The hooligan half of me that steals form Woolworth's, while the other lives for love." I can't pinpoint exactly why I like the song so much...it's just nice to listen to.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song by Robbie, the lyrics are so powerful, and I think everyone can completely relate to them at some point or another.

    General CommentI'm listening to the Robbie tape I've had for years, just haven't listened to it in so long. Forgot that I actually liked it. Great stuff, and not as poppy as some would call it.
