Lyrics

Somethin' like a carnival

We're separate hearts on a carousel

The marching band is harmonious

In a crowded room of loneliness

 

My mind is playin' tricks on me

All the while, I believe

I'm happy in a fancy dress

While I waltz around with loneliness

 

My suitors may think I'm a dainty little things

'Cause I paint on my smile in a shade of pink

But give me a gun and I'll never miss

'Cause I learned how to fight with loneliness

 

O, I ain't a believer

We will ever meet again

But if we do,

I'd have no problem settin' fire to the sand

And we'd run away

With all that money burnin' holes in our hands

And they'd say 

Annie gone and done it just the way that she had planned

And they'd say

Annie isn't lonely anymore

 

Change the tune to Boxcar Willie

And look at the moon on an ol' trapeze

Swingin low, the first night we kissed

When I fell in love with loneliness

 

O, I ain't a believer

We will ever meet again

But if we do,

I'd have no problem settin' fire to the sand

And we'd run away

With all that money burnin' holes in our hands

And they'd say 

Annie gone and done it just the way that she had planned

And they'd say

Annie isn't lonely anymore
