Never Been Lonely

by Mark Schirmacher

/

about

written in ELY, MN, feeling a little blue.

Song originally appeared on the Mark Schirmacher + Nate2Timez EP Stories From The Other Life. This version was recorded 6 months earlier at the White Bear Lake studio of Tom Forliti.

This version is unique because it features the use of a classical guitar (not a steel stringed acoustic guitar).

One take, no overdubs.

lyrics

Sit by the lake
Listen to the wind
The water laps at the shore
A raven flies by overhead - I’ve never felt lonely like this before

You left in your car
Headed for home
A 4-hour drive or more
I walk the same loop again and again
and I’ve never felt lonely like this before

(chorus) It’s been a few miles and a few little whiles
Children around us, my how they grow
A night on our own and now I’m so alone
I miss you more than you know -

Night has come on
The cabin is lit
Young ones bring echoes no more
The wind sounds the same as I whisper your name
And I’ve never felt lonely like this before

(bridge) Yes, we are one we make heat like the Sun
The days they float past and I thought
I was stronger alone
Did you cry, too in that space that we knew
When the children were young
And the sunsets could not come too soon -

The space in my heart
Big as the sky
The quiet, a deafening roar
Tomorrow is dragging its feet and I’ve never been lonely like this before



(chorus) It’s been a few miles and a few little whiles
Children around us, my how they grow
A night on our own and now I’m so alone
I miss you more than you know

As you drive south with my kiss on your mouth
And I just keep watching the door
I’ve never been lonely like this before
Like this before

The moon has come out
Behind the clouds
The end of this dock an emotional clock
That strikes when my heart hits the floor
And I’ve never been lonely like this before -
