Words that are spoke alone
Phrases you will never hear
Empty rooms and a telephone
That I will never use
Never fear
I am all alone, dear
I am all alone

Verse 3
My dogs come sit next to me
A pack of dogs and cigarettes
My only friends speak no words to me
But they look at me and they Don't forget
That a boy's best friend
        Is his mother or whatever has become his pet
