I Read a Lot

Album: The Old Magic (2011)
  • I read a lot, nowadays
    Much more than before you left me high and dry
    In a loveless land
    With nothing but time on my hands
    I read a lot, not just magazines
    But other more serious things, to get me through the day
    Nighttime too
    Whilst wondering how in the world to go on without you
    "Lonely" isn't the word for me now
    "Blue" doesn't describe it somehow
    I read a lot, I can't put it down
    While others are painting the town, you'll find me in a world
    Of fantasy.
    Population: one. That's me
    So if you ask me how I stop
    Contemplating what I now have not
    I'll reply
    I read a lot
