Empty House

Made the wrong bets
Chose the wrong path
Ran away
And paid the price

Walk through the days in a daze
What used to thrill me
No longer fills me
And there's nothing else

Want something to come home to
Thought I had a chance
Slipped through my hands
Now it's just me again

Gets exhausting
Playing to an empty house
No energy left
Nothing to sing or shout

Keep trudging this road
Hoping to find a home
Maybe it's not meant to be
In this life anyway

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore
