Songs About Everything
Written and Sung by John Primm
Ah, them memories this song this song brings back to me. I had just moved to Hollywood
to work in the industrial film business. The company I worked for gave me a one-way plane
ticket from Chicago to LA, and all I had was a small suitcase and my Guild D-40 guitar.
I was making $100 a week and I was on top of the world! Just a little lonely.........
In my room of four white walls
Beyond the stairs, beyond the halls
I run looking for my meaning
But then I'm leaning on my dreaming
I'm really lonely.
I walk down the stairs and up the street
Hopin' and a prayin' that I will meet someone
Who will share my life.
Am I right, need I a wife?
I'm so lonely.
I run though the city up and down
Through the park and all around
Wishin' that I'd find someone
Who will then become
The simply just great one
To cure my lonely.
How do I find out where to go?
When I meet her how do I know it's her?
And what do I say?
What can I pay to make that day
Cure my lonely?
I sing and before too long
All at once I see what's wrong with me - I've seen what's mine
All I have is time
And the time that's mine
has been spent being lonely.
