A face of stone.

This room is filled with people, yet I work here all alone
I’m feeling very lonely so I wear a face of stone
Having fun and making friends are clearly not allowed
Phone calls are more important than to mingle with the crowd
Every night I go home to a dark and empty house
I have no friends or one to call my spouse
My only social contacts are the voices on the phone
That’s why I come to work each day and wear a face of stone

The band’s here.

How nice to know that you all want me right here
There’s one thing I need to make perfectly clear
I’m here at the bar and I’m drinking a beer
I’m having a great time because the band’s here

The music is lively and brings me great cheer
My troubles are melting and will disappear
My outlook is bold and there’s nothing to fear
I’m feeling alive because the band is here

I’m living my way through a difficult year
My future’s uncertain, the path is unclear
You don’t see me sad and I don’t shed a tear
Nothing else matters because the band’s here

How nice to know that you all want me right here
There’s one thing I need to make perfectly clear
I’m here at the bar and I’m drinking a beer
I’m having a great time because the band’s here
