The Loneliest Planet

A sad ballad about lost love and how the separation is like being totally alone.

Verse 1
A warm wind brings on thoughts of you, then comes a shiver of regret
Was there something I could have said or done that I haven’t thought of yet
It’s been so long since you’ve been gone, you’d think I’d learned by now
To put aside your memory and get along somehow

 

Verse 2
But evening comes and I’m looking up at the universe on display
Once we would watch in awe and sometimes kneel and pray
We’d wonder if there’s life out there but that no longer interests me
Cause I’m stranded here, without you near, as lonely as can be

 

Chorus
The sun, the moon and the stars still shine but they don’t seem the same
Down here I wander aimlessly with no one but myself to blame
Feel like a refugee, I just don’t belong
Without you here this is the loneliest planet I’ve ever been on

 

Bridge
Sunrise then sunset, I guess the world must still be turning ‘round
Life goes on, but I’m alone where heartaches and misery surround

 

Verse 3
Old friends keep reaching out, I know that they mean well
But they don’t understand this place where I’ve come to dwell
Sadness and confusion are my companions on this sphere
I’m living in a different world, the only person here

 

Chorus
The sun, the moon and the stars still shine but they don’t seem the same
Down here I wander aimlessly with no one but myself to blame
Feel like a stranger here, I just don’t belong
With you gone this is the loneliest planet, I’ve ever been on

Without you here this is the loneliest planet I’ve ever been on
