Once I thought I knew
Everything I needed to know about you
Your sweet whisper, your tender touch
But I didn't really know that much
The joke's on me, but it's gonna be okay
If I can just get through this lonesome day

Hell's brewin', dark sun's on the rise
This storm'll blow through by and by
House is on fire, viper's in the grass
A little revenge and this too shall pass
This too shall pass, I'm gonna pray
Right now, all I got's this lonesome day

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

Better ask questions before you shoot
Deceit and betrayal's bitter fruit
It's hard to swallow, come time to pay
That taste on your tongue don't easily slip away

Let kingdom come, I'm gonna find my way
Through this lonesome day

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Lonesome day

    General CommentThis is about a guy going through a very tough time, and he knows that it's gonna pass, at least he prays that. But right now, he's stuck in this funk. It relates to a breakup or even a death. He just needs a little time to get through this time.
