Loudon Wainwright Iii – I'd Rather Be Lonely lyrics

Every night I get the blues
Greens and yellows and chartreuses
You're still living here with me, I'd rather be lonely

All the thime I look around
For excuses to leave town
Everybody wants somebody but I'd rather be lonely

Lonliness is happiness it takes less than two
I confess that I digress from it when I'm with you

Let's us make a brand new start
Separate and stay apart
I've had enough having and holding
I'd rather be lonely

I think that I need some space
Every day you're in my face
How can I get rid of you, I'd rather be lonely


One more verse, a few more words
Love is for the bees and birds
Not for a human being like me
I'd rather be lonely
