The Speed of the Sound of Loneliness

 

 G                                                       C

You come home late and you come home early

D7                                                   G
You come on big when you're feeling small

                                                                C
You come home straight and you come home curly

D7                                              G
Sometimes you don't come home at all



Chorus:

                                          C
So what in the world's come over you

D7                                                 G
And what in heaven's name have you done

                                                             C
You've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness

D7                                                         G
You're out there running just to be on the run

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

Repeat Chorus:

It's a mighty mean and a dreadful sorrow
It's crossed the evil line today
Well, how can you ask about tomorrow
We ain't got one word to say

Repeat Chorus:

Ending:

D7                                                         G
You're out there running just to be on the run

D7                                                         G
You're out there running just to be on the run

D7                                                         G
You're out there running just to be on the run
