How long does it take to forget
The face that haunts your dreamtime?
And how many years does it take to regret
The times spent in between time?

Oh, you're not lonely, you're only alone
And I know you've got friends and they're on the telephone
Far be it from me to question your sanity
'Cause in the end, friend, we're all on our own.

No, I'm not lonely, I'm only here by myself
Got the radio, got the record show, got the books waiting on the shelf
No, I'm not lonely, I'm only passing time
In a week or two I'm telling you it's gonna turn, turn out fine.

How long does it take to wake up?
How long to adventure?
Past illusions timeless make up
Into time forever?

Oh, you're not lonely, you're only alone
And I know you've got friends and they're on the telephone
Far be it from me to question your sanity
'Cause in the end, friend, we're all on our own.

No, I'm not lonely, I'm only here by myself
Got the radio, got the record show, got the books waiting on the shelf
No, I'm not lonely, I'm only passing time
In a week or two I'm telling you it's gonna turn, turn out fine.

No, I'm not lonely, I'm only here by myself
Got the radio, got the record show, got the books waiting on the shelf
No, I'm not lonely, I'm only passing time
In a week or two I'm telling you it's gonna turn, turn out fine.

No, I'm not lonely, I'm only here by myself
Got the radio, got the record show but I'm only here by myself.
