The Sound of Loneliness

I show you my soul in 4/4 time
I take out my broken heart for you to see
I sing of the darkness that is the road
But does anybody ever pray for me?

I may not be alone at night
But in the morning I have to leave
I wonder if anyone cares
I wonder if anyone believes


But itís the music that moves me
It moves me from town to town
I will always play for you
I will always sing for you
And I donít want to bring you down

Iíve got a loaded six string
That'll really blow you away
But I just want you to hear
What it is that I have to say


When I sing about the emptiness
The tears on my face are real
I drop my eyes to the floor
So you canít see the pain that I feel

I smile so you canít really tell
Just what Iím going through
And I laugh so you wonít believe
That what Iím telling you is true


But itís the music that moves me
It moves me from town to town
I will always play for you
I will always sing for you
And I donít want to bring you down

Iíve got a loaded six string
That'll really blow you away
But I just want you to hear
What it is that I have to say


I thank you all at closing time
And tell you, ďMay God care for your soulĒ
I pack up my gear then mingle for free drinks
While another lonely night takes its toll

Itís been such a long time
Since Iíve had somebody to love
And Iím not one whoís much for praying
Because no one listens above

Author's Note
Two lines in the last verse I wanted to memorialize Brad Delp from Boston who committed suicide and also Freddy Mercury had a tumultuous life before he passed away way too soon.
