Ives The Band – The Lonely One lyrics

Fall asleep on the hay
You're run down but you've found your place
To dream of older times 'neath older skies of happier grays

Though you've won at your games
Now you found it's a lonely way
Cuz you've never really loved someone 'til love is all that you gain

And when you learn love
Flee your days as the lonely one
Soon you'll find life is alright, life is alright, I know
If you'll find a way, yes you find your way back home

Is this life what you chose
You broke your back holding up the show
As you held to fears of past frontiers at last your cover is blown

Sure you weren't one of those
Frauds and liars stealing from their own
But you never took a breath that wasn't theft, you're a cheat in your bones

But if you learn to love
Leave your years as the lonely one
Soon you'll find life is alright, life is alright, we know
When you find a way, yes you find a way
To give your heart one more golden day
Back home
