2a.m, where do I begin 
Crying off my face again 
The silent sound of loneliness 
Wants to follow me to bed 
I'm the ghost of a girl 
That I want to be most 
I'm the shell of a girl 
That I used to know well 
Dancing slowly in an empty room 
Can the lonely take the place of you 
I sing myself a quiet lullaby 
Then you go and let the lonely in 
To take my heart again 
Too afraid, to go inside 
For the pain of one more loveless night 
For the loneliness will stay with me 
And hold me till I fall asleep 
I'm the ghost of a girl 
That I want to be most 
I'm the shell of a girl 
That I used to know well 
Dancing slowly in an empty room 
Can the lonely take the place of you 
I sing myself a quiet lullaby 
Then you go and let the lonely in 
To take my heart again 
Broken pieces of 
A barely breathing story 
Where there once was love 
Now there's only me 
And the lonely 
Dancing slowly in an empty room 
Can the lonely take the place of you 
I sing myself a quiet lullaby 
Then you go and let the lonely in 
To take my heart again.
