As Far As Lonely Goes (Wright Michelle)

Underneath the neon sign Of Harry's Bar and Grill Someone hugs a bottle To take away the chill. Oh But the wind still blows Carries his sleeping soul As far as lonely goes. Upstairs in a penthouse Behind a golden door Someone's drinking pink champagne To keep from being board. Between the highs and lows The icy wind still blows As far as lonely goes. You would never buy a bottle To wash away your troubles. If you could buy a suitcase for your soul. You would make a pretty package Of all your extra baggage. Look it up and send it down the road As far as lonely goes. From the has-bents to the haves From the mansions to the alleys From the riches to the rags Underneath our clothes. We're all the same You know As far as lonely goes. I would never buy a bottle To wash away my troubles
