Lonely girl, how does it feel
Knowing that nothing in your life is real?
The world, and you, are just so fake,
How does it feel to be something that you hate?
Wake up and dread your existence,
(I know you do)
Burn all bridges to create some distance,
(Life’s hard to get through)

The whereabouts of your mind are anybody’s guess,
Wearing nothing but a smile, you look so well dressed.

Lonely girl, how have you been?
Exposed the truth to you and haven’t seen you since,
The world you hate is your home,
You can run all you want with nowhere to go,
Wake up and doubt whether all you are

(And all that you know)
Is a scratched vinyl and a painting of a shooting star,
(It’s so hard to let go)

Where did your heart go, leaving you empty and here
As you stare at a shooting star, wishing you would disappear?

The truth is, oh, lonely girl,
You mean a lot to me, you are my world,
Ruthlessly denying yourself of any love at all,
Your only friends in the multiverse are these walls

Youthless, look me in the eyes,
(Stare at me for a while)
Tell me about those ideals you compromise,
(What a sad charlatan smile)

To find your real self, I will search the oceans seven,
And if you decide to leave me now, I’ll drag you back from heaven.

Lonely girl, how does it feel?
How does it feel to be alone?
How does it feel to be so cold?
Lonely girl, will you let me know?
Lonely girl, how does it feel
Knowing that you’re just like me?
