Ugly Duckling

Ugly Duckling - The Lonely Ones

rate me

You lie still, the walls are closing in again

Unable to summon any adrenaline

Without passion, limping on your last limb

But you'd still run from interaction

Cause all people do is pick at the scab

Bringing up a conflict that they think you may have

So, when they asked you laughed and lied

And they were pacified but it was trapped inside

When you were younger, man you would have mocked this

Cracked a snap and called it all softness

But look at you now, a walking ghost

Trying to fight your way off the ropes

But in that room it's only you and all your secrets

Remaining calm and you don't wanna fall to pieces

But when it's dark you just might start to get ideas

You'll say your strong and moving on

But you don't need this feeling

[Chorus:]

Tonight we are the lonely ones

The lights go out the show is done

So lock your door and bite your tongue

Tonight we are the lonely ones

This time around I specifically wrote

On a slippery slope cause I typically joke

So here I'm am standing on the middle of the Grand Canyon

With no companion, echoes at random

I'm alone with the shadows cold and scared

It's like losing sight when you're hearing impaired

Just running (runnin) unseen like a sasquatch

Feeling lost in the crash like the black box

I keep thinking about all my flaws

Frozen inside and I can't be thawed

So put me on an iceberg, push me away

To hide in the horizon fading to gray

I'd like to get this off my chest, it's complicated

I start to speak and feel relief but I can't say it

I hide the truth or stay aloof and isolated

And think I'm strong and moving on but I can't shake this feeling

[Chorus]

Tonight we are the lonely ones

Tonight we are the lonely ones

Tonight we are the lonely ones

Tonight we are alone

We are the lonely ones

We are the lonely ones

We are the lonely ones

We are the lonely ones

We are the lonely ones
