lyrics

You're a lonely boy. I was one, too.
Tryin' to get somebody to love me
by showin' 'em all of the things I could do.
Turns out it's not that simple.
Turns out it's not true
for lonely boys like me and you.

You're a perfect kid. So was I.
Tryin' to get my daddy to want me
and crushed by the weight of the old college try.
Turns out it's not that simple.
Turns out it's a lie
for lonely boys like you and I.

Come back, come back
and see what you're missing.
Just look what you're missing.
Come back and see.
You yell "Come back!"
but nobody listens.
Nobody listens to you or to me.

You're a lonely boy. I was one, too.
Tryin' to get somebody to love me
and learning' there's only so much you can do.
Turns out it's not that simple.
Turns out a bit cruel
for lonely boys like me and you.
