Speed of the Sound of Loneliness

You come home late and you come home early
You come on big when you're feeling small
You come home straight and you come home curly
Sometimes you don't come home at all

What in the world has come over you?
What in Heaven's name have you done?
You've broken the speed of the Sound of Loneliness
You're out there running just to be on the run

Well I got a heart and it burns with a fever
I got a worried and a jealous mind
How can a love that'll last forever
Get left so far behind?

It's a mighty mean and a dreadful sorrow
Crossed the evil line today
How can you ask me about tomorrow
We aint got one word to say
