Yesterdays Song

When you’d say to me
Why am I alone so?
What have I lost?
What have I lost?

Could you lend me something please?
I need to make a phone call.
I don’t know who I’m calling yet...

I’m immune to misery,
So why am I lonely?
Why do I doubt?
Why do I doubt?

There’s blood on my feet,
I’m walking on glass now,
Tread it in the carpet,
Oh stop me Lou Reed.

Could you sing me something please?
I need to hear a voice now,
Oh since you last spoke to me
It’s been three weeks, two days and seven hours.

Would you tell me something please?
All I hear is silence.
Oh just say anything, anything,
What have I done?

Can’t you come to visit me?
I’ve been alone for so long I don’t remember
The sound of my own doorbell.

Speak to me,
Tell me about yesterday
And yesterdays song,
The one with the words that you’d always ignored;
And when I told your secrets
There were only ten people there anyway.
Singing yesterdays song,
‘Bout all of my lonesome,
‘Bout all of my doubt.

What have I lost?
Why am I alone so?
What have I done?
What have I done?
