From the recording Sixteen Winters
today i coudn't eat i was so lonely
i coudn't think about a single thing
except for you and how our love is only
another song of careless hearts for me to sing
love's despair has got me
sittin' there might not be hurtin'
but it sure ain't helpin' none
love's despair has found me
empty walls surround me darlin'
i'm you lonely only one
well there's nothin' here in houston to amuse me
and 45's a long long road to you
highway signs and streetlights just confuse me
they show the way, but i can't make it through
