  • Hello walls, (hello) (hello)
    How'd things go for you today?
    Don't you miss her
    Since she up and walked away?
    And I'll bet you dread to spend
    Another lonely night with me
    But lonely walls, I'll keep you company

    Hello window (hello) (hello)
    Well I see that you're still here
    Aren't you lonely
    Since our darlin' disappeared?
    Well, look here, is that a teardrop
    In the corner of your pane?
    Now don't you try to tell me that it's rain

    She went away and left us all alone
    The way she planned
    Guess we'll have to learn to get along
    Without her if we can

    Hello ceiling, (hello) (hello)
    I'm gonna stare at you awhile
    You know I can't sleep
    So won't you bear with me awhile?

    We must all stick together or else
    I'll lose my mind
    I've got a feelin', she'll be gone a long, long time
    (Hello, hello) Writer/s: Willie Nelson
