Song of the Day: “So Sad, So Lonely”

I found out
On a late night drive
In my winter coat
With my blood-shot eyes
My faith ain’t been
No friend to me
And the way I sin
Is hanging off of me

And I’m sorry
You can’t take me anywhere
Pretty soon we’re almost there
Baby, one more night
It’s been a long, long drive
And I’m way, way tired
I don’t need no
Back-up plan

I don’t want nobody
Nobody don’t want me
I’m so sad so lonely
But I’m always landing on my feet

One more time
With a sad, sad smile
And your white bread friends
In the circus life
All the one-way rides
The sweet beginnings
Passing on the left-hand side
With a sideways smile

And I’m always
One step from stalling
Bad trips can make great stories
Dance all night
With your ass on fire
And your hands up high
And feel me one more time

I don’t want nobody
Nobody don’t want me
I’m so sad so lonely
But I’m always landing on my feet

I learn to love myself
And I don’t need no one else
And when a love moves on
’cause it gets cold
Then another moves in
And it can fill the hole

I’m one more
Hopeful lying on the bedroom floor
No sense trying
When the whole thing drops
You lose your nerve
I hope you get what you deserve

I don’t want nobody
Nobody don’t want me
I’m so sad so lonely
But I’m always landing on my feet

My publisher has put my novel The Fall and Rise of Peter Stoller on sale for the month of July. Only on Smashwords, however. Click here to go have a look.

1960’s London: British Intelligence agent Peter Stoller is next in line to run the Agency—until he falls in love with cab driver, Charles, and his life goes off the road. When Charles is accused of treason, Peter is guilty by association. Peter manages to extract them both, but the seeds of doubt have been planted, putting Peter’s mind and heart at war. Is ignorance truly bliss or merely deadly?
