“Lonely Town”
Music and Lyrics by Tyler Burns, © 2012

Verse 1
Quarter of five
Hit the punch clock
Trenchcoats
People creepin’ down the sidewalk
Violent thoughts
On the subway
Breathing in fumes
Eating from an ashtray
But that smile
Has such power
It gives me strength to wanna
Live another hour
I say hello
You say goodbye
I hate this tension
But I love the reason why

Chorus 1
Stay silent if it makes you feel better
Words are always easier in letters
Be careful that you never, ever make a sound
Be careful not to bother any one around
Finding love in lonely town

Verse 2
I’m brushed off
With blank stares
By pickpocket
Black market millionaires
Where are my friends?
Where have they gone?
What about the folks
Who used to cheer me on?
So many people
Always on the phone
Talkin’ to themselves
‘Cuz they’re afraid to be alone
We try to speak
We’re just too shy
I hate this tension
But I love the reason why
Chorus 2
Stay silent if it makes you feel better
Words are always easier in letters
Be careful that you never, ever make a sound
Be careful not to bother any one around
Finding love in lonely town

Bridge 1
I know
My part in this puppet show

Bridge 2
(Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah!)
(Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah!)
(Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah!) (Yeah!)

Chorus 3
Stay silent if it makes you feel better
Words are always easier in letters
Be careful that you never, ever make a sound
Be careful not to bother any one around
Finding love in lonely town
