  • Two am, where do I begin
    Crying off my face again
    The silent sound of loneliness
    Wants to follow me to bed

    I'm a ghost of a girl
    That I want to be most
    I'm the shell of a girl
    That I used to know well

    Dancing slowly in an empty room
    Can the lonely take the place of you
    I sing myself a quiet lullaby
    Let you go and let the lonely in
    To take my heart again

    Too afraid, to go inside
    For the pain of one more loveless night
    For the loneliness will stay with me
    And hold me till I fall asleep

    I'm a ghost of a girl
    That I want to be most
    I'm the shell of a girl
    That I used to know well

    Dancing slowly in an empty room
    Can the lonely take the place of you
    I sing myself a quiet lullaby
    Let you go and let the lonely in
    To take my heart again

    Broken pieces of
    A barely breathing story
    Where there once was love
    Now there's only me
    And the lonely

    Dancing slowly in an empty room
    Can the lonely take the place of you
    I sing myself a quiet lullaby
    Let you go and let the lonely in
    To take my heart again
