Lyrics for LONELY SOUND
One of the things that makes songs translate into goosebumps, I think, is the sheer truth of them. I was going through a rough personal time of heartbreak, confusion, and weird affairs of the heart when I wrote Lonely Sound. I was on a lonely solo tour and driving ridiculously long hours with too much time to think about me and my messed up life. I will often get a song started on the guitar with a melody and some lyrics and then find I can really get free with it if I'm driving. This tune hurt coming out, and I remember having to keep pulling over at rest stops to write down what was coming. When the tour was over I took what I had into a writing session with Jon McCelroy who is so damn sensitive and talented. Together we finished what I'd spewed out, and he helped me give it a sort of old country type feel. It reminds me a bit of Glen Campbell.
LONELY SOUND ( Jon McCelroy/ Amelia White)
1.Such a lonely sound the ringing of a phone call- someone who you can't let fall back into your eyes
such a lonely sound, wheels on a highway, tenth hour on a Monday, at least I'm making good time
you don't wake up planning to break a heart, or catch the eye of someone already caught; you don't look back when you're starting new, why am I still thinking 'bout you?
2.Motorcycles to the left, dog barking out the window, you got me in that sweet and tender spot
three thousand miles is the distance that you asked for in not so many words, but that's what you got
