lyrics

people love to hear you sing the blues
they want to be there for you when you lose
they understand it when you pay your dues
but when the world goes right your way
no, they don't want to hear about your day
they're quickly running out of things to say

you get the loneliness of happiness
yeah it's the loneliness of happiness
i'm so lonely 'cause i'm happy
i'm so happy but i'm so lonely

you're feeling low and they get in deep
'cause the Bible says to weep
with those who weep
well yeah, that's a promise anyone could keep
didn't it also tell us to rejoice
with those who do and with one voice?
well, people rarely ever make that choice

you get the loneliness of happiness
yeah it's the loneliness of happiness
i'm so lonely 'cause i'm happy
i'm so happy but i'm so lonely

people love to hear you sing the blues
