“I Ain’t Been Lonely, Until I Met You”
Kyle Cox
Orlando, Florida

I ain’t been lonely, until I met you
My walls were up, no one could break through
This heart was cold & hard as a stone
From years of living life on my own

Without warning or chance to defend
You stormed my heart, I was forced to give in

Now when you’re gone I don’t know what to do
I ain’t been lonely until I met you

I ain’t been lonely, until I met you
Clouds filled my sky, no light could shine through
I was no stranger to the dark of the night
Where I remained most of my life

When I met you, my night turned to day
Clouds disappeared, skies were no longer grey

But when you’re gone, the sun leaves me too
I ain’t been lonely until I met you

I ain’t been lonely, until I met you
I played the game the only way that I knew
Don’t risk it all unless you’re sure that you’ll win
The odds you’ll hit are still fairly slim

The rules all changed the moment we met
I’ll bet on you every chance that I get

But when you leave, honey, I only lose
I ain’t been lonely until I met you
