“BETTER THAN LONELY”
Ron Stratton
Belle Vista, Arkansas

She can’t remember how they met.
What she wore or what he said.
Her friends seemed to like having him around.
They talked about the good one she had found.
And the world went round.

I GUESS ITS BETTER THAN LONELY.
I GUESS ITS BETTER IF NOBODY HAS TO CRY.
I GUESS ITS BETTER THAN LONELY.
AND LOOKING FOR TRUE LOVE TAKES TOO MUCH TIME.

She’s got to admit that it works well.
She packs his lunch, he pays her bills.
She asks about his day, he says “just fine”.
The television burns into the night.
And they never fight.

CHORUS – REPEAT

She sits down beside him and turns the TV off.
She takes both his hands and says “its time to talk”.
But he says “don’t speak, I know I’m not what you need”.

Her new apartment is pretty small.
But it doesn’t bother her at all.
Her new job keeps her on the go.
Its not easy, but she knows … she’ll make it on her own.

AND ITS SO MUCH BETTER THAN LONELY.
ITS SO MUCH BETTER SINCE THEY BOTH HAD THEIR CRY.
ITS SO MUCH BETTER THAN LONELY.
SHE KNOWS HER TRUE LOVE IS OUT THERE TO FIND.
SHE HAS A TRUE LOVE SHE’S GONNA FIND.
AND ITS SO MUCH BETTER THAN LONELY.
