Singing All Alone

Pretending I'm on the phone
Talking to no one
I'll admit it's pretty lame
I'm singing all alone
Trying to find that tone
I don't know how to play this game

I'm singing all alone
Like I do everything else
Couples together in heaven
I'm alone in this hell
No one hears my voice
No one cares at all
No one
To catch me when I fall

I never wanted to spend my life alone
But here I am
Sinking like a stone
Into a whirlpool of introspection
Nothing to see but me
I'd stand in the middle of an intersection
Just to talk to someone

But here I am
Singing all alone
Singing all alone

Author's Note
This isn't me, but a conglomeration of communication with single people during Covid. Loneliness is one of the biggest problems right now, and it's real.
