Afternoon tea for a party of one
This is the extent of my fun
Crying inside for a life thrown away
I'm losing my mind in a silent way

Angry at God for what never should be
Lovers and others together, not me
Take me away when I'm done with my afternoon tea

Afternoon tea as the sun fades away
No future plans
Here to live day to day
One lonely man who is shunned and betrayed
I'm telling myself I am strong not afraid

Angry at God for what never should be
Lovers and others together, not me
Take me away when I'm done with my afternoon tea

Angry at God for what never should be
Lovers and others together, not me
Take me away when I'm done with my afternoon tea

What have I done to deserve such disgrace?
Look at me and you'll see on my face

Angry at God for what never should be
Lovers and others together, not me
Take me away when I'm done with my afternoon tea

Afternoon tea
Afternoon tea
Afternoon tea
