Sterling Price-McKinney: Music & Lyrics

Lonely Lounge

(Sterling Price-McKinney)
Words and Music by Sterling PriceMcKinney
Sometimes your words are there,
and the music is already playing.
You look around to find,
nobody hears what you're saying ...
in a lonely lounge.

The tickets are sold,
but there aren't any takers.
No one chooses the truth,
over petty heartbreakers ...
in a lonely lounge.

Ships come in,
but there's nobody waiting.
Fools rush in,
without anticipating.

To a lonely lounge
where nobody comes to dream ...
A lonely lounge
where things are not what they seem.
Oh, can't you see?
When nobody dreams but me
it's a lonely lounge ...

They soak up their drinks,
sipping quality labels ...
Love rises and sinks,
and falls asleep
at the tables ...
in a lonely lounge.

Do I wish on a star,
or look to the rainbow?
Do I begin the beguine,
or try to dance a fandango?

In a lonely lounge,
where nobody comes to dream ...
a lonely lounge
where things are not what they seem ...
Oh, can't you see?
When nobody dreams but me,
it's a lonely lounge.
such a lonely lounge ...

Except that,
everything happens for a reason.
There are no accidents.
What's meant to be,
is meant to be.
And it's better that way,
if it's just you and me ...
and a lonely lounge ...

This not so lonely lounge.
