Alive And Alone

print

I see you there at the Brass Rail Bar
Somebody just asked you what sign you are
And I see you’re thinkin’ you maybe should’ve stayed home
But you’re tired of being alive and alone

In your brand new hairdo, you look real fine
I hear you toast yourself, today you’re twenty-nine
And you’re riding on what the future brings
An honest man who wants the simple things.

There’s Tiffany lamps here to brighten up the gloom
The conversation sounds like a locker room
Where will you find love, you’re living in a tiny world
And at the office they call you an old fashioned girl

You sit so silent, sipping at a beer
Catching your reflection in a tinted mirror
And you shopped all day for that brand new dress
What a price to pay, for settling for less

I see you there at the Brass Rail Bar
Somebody just asked you what sign you are
And I see you’re wishin’ you woulda just stayed home
But you’re tired of being alive and alone

Alive and alone Alive and alone
Alive and alone Alive and alone
