"Didn't Want To Be This Lonely" lyrics - THE PRETENDERS

THE PRETENDERS
"Didn't Want To Be This Lonely"

Well I didn't want to be this lonely
Though losing you was a relief
From a life with one man only
Devoid of morals or belief

[Chorus:]
But I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely

I'm still not sure I did the right thing
To forfeit danger for good sense
But in my mind you're like a cash till
Breaking dollars into cents

[Chorus:]
But I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely

[Bridge:]
Hey
Hey
Lone-lone-lonely
Hey
Hey
Lonely

You'll find somebody else to suffer
And get to know your selfish ways
And I'll feel pity for the next one
When you start to ruin her days

[Chorus:]
But I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
No I didn't want to be this lonely
