[Verse 1]
I'm so lonely
so fucking lonely
I'm not used to hearing
my thoughts coherently
I'm in limbo
waiting solo
waiting for every moment
to flash before my eyes
for when the world ends
and we'll all be here
to watch god's creation
destroyed before her eyes
I know it's morbid
real damn morbid
but I know it'll happen
happen eventually
[Chorus]
now where is everyone
my soul left to have fun
I'm all ages at once
I'm all but also none
I'm so lonely
my deaths a living hell
I know all will be well
in seven years
I won't be here
and I won't be lonely
[Verse 2]
someone hold me
hold me tightly
I love being alone
but fuck being lonely
please console me
also, know me
before joining me
in the fields of asphodel
no one loves me
but they do now
I just wanted attention
but never this way
no one told me
I'd be soulless
for a couple hundred years
oh fuck being lonely
[Outro]
cause I need
somebody
to hold me
at all times to keep me company
I need
somebody
to hold me
at all times to keep me company
oh I need
somebody
to hold me
at all times to keep me company
yes I need
somebody
to hold me
at all times to keep me company

It's been a lot of years since I've read someone else's lyrics, and lo and behold, the first one I see is THIS one. Which really amazes me to tell you the truth. There is a TON here. Philosophy. Dripping emotion. A very different structure. I would REALLY like to hear this. For some crazy reason, I can hear K.D. Lang singing these lyrics. She uses avant-garde styles and approaches to her songs, which I think are BRILLIANT, and this lyric COULD be brilliant with the right melody and performance. So....I await the recording. Nice job. You moved me!

I agree with Paul - if you aren't a musician, do you at least have a thread of a melody running around in your head? If so, you should sing it or even hum it - then post that sound to this thread.
