Story Behind the Song

Singer faces loneliness with humor, pathos and a desire to find his true love.

Lyrics

Don't Wanna Be Lonely
© Grant Maloy Smith

Don't wanna be lonely
All my life
Why can't I be happy, happy, happy
All the time?

Don't wanna be boring
Cry til I float
I got to find someone who can
Grab my heart
And grab my throat

And it's now or never
I can't wait one more year
Yes, it's now or never
My dear
I know sooner or later
This dream will come true
Sooner or later
She'll come shining through

Don't wanna be lonely
All the time
Don't want to go on
Like I've been going on
Don't wanna be spiteful
Act like a child
I've got this itchy imagination
Drives me wild
Don't wanna be lonely
All my life
Why can't I be happy, happy, happy
All the time?

Chorus

Don't wanna be lonely
Don't like the sound of ticking time
Or the dreams I keep rehearsing
In my mind
I got to find the answer
Open every door
Because I don't like being lonely
Any more
