Ward, Tyler - What It's Like To Be Lonely Lyrics

Headed back home
Boarding the plane
Like an old ghost thought I heard your name
And my heart stopped, skipped a beat for one second
Turned around, but who was I kidding?
Just a sweet girl
Was she here to save me?
Will I finally get to move on, maybe?
Quick drinks, so that I can move closer
Ask her name, hoping for closure

So this is what it's like to be lonely?
Spending every minute thinking 'bout you
But looking for somebody else to hold me
Only hoping they will know me like you do
Get out of my mind for a moment
You took my heart and marked it like a tattoo
They say that time will heal like a potion
But time has only got me missing more of you, of you
(Lonely, lonely)
(Lonely, lonely)

It's been a few months
And not much has changed
Still check my phone to see if your name's on it
Drive past the places we used to go
Our song keeps spinning on the radio
And I know I sound a little cliché, but I
I never thought the things could change
So please, don't forget me when the summer fades
All the while, I'll be trying to replace your face

So this is what it's like to be lonely?
Spending every minute thinking 'bout you
But looking for somebody else to hold me
Only hoping they will know me like you do
Get out of my mind for a moment
You took my heart and marked it like a tattoo
They say that time will heal like a potion
But time has only got me missing more of you, of you
(Lonely, lonely)
(This is what it's like to be, this is what it's like to be)
(Lonely, lonely)
(This is what it's like to be lonely)

All I want is for you to know
That I'm sorry for all the things I didn't didn't do
All I want is for you to know
That I'm sorry for all the things I didn't didn't do
If I call you up in the middle of the night
If I send you a text asking, "How is your life?"
It's just me checking in insecure
Wondering if I exist anymore
If I say something and I started a fight
Between you and yours, yeah I'll act so surprised
Surprised, surprised
I'll need a little time

So this is what it's like to be lonely?
Spending every minute thinking 'bout you
But looking for somebody else to hold me
Only hoping they will know me like you do
Get out of my mind for a moment
You took my heart and marked it like a tattoo
They say that time will heal like a potion
But time has only got me missing more of you, of you
(Lonely, lonely, lonely)
(Lonely, lonely, this is what it's like to be lonely)
(Lonely, this is what it's like to be lonely)

Ward, Tyler What It's Like To Be Lonely Comments

    What's it like to leave a baby ABANDONED. I dont know son. Why dont you get some sleep and ..

  2. Cs Gamer

    When ur with a girl for a year and 2 months and after all I did for her caring for her treating her like a queen and suddenly she says she doesn’t love me and things have changed and it crushes me everyday for the past 3 months it feels like nothing could numb the pain this song I found fits my situation perfectly I never thought this day would come 💔

  3. miguel nerie

  4. QUEEN of Fries

    Relatable x2

  5. 林顥

    happened to find this song in the middle of the night... thinking of a girl who made me cry
    after almost two years i still burst into tears
    love from taiwan btw

  6. Dark Wolf

    Songs like this make me think of my boyfriend and how I'd feel if we split up. It really helps me appreciate the people in my life during times I'm feeling selfish and forgetfull

  7. Brandon Cooke

    Who's listening to this is 2019?

  8. Tinay Montefalco

    Still one of my favorite songs! Keep inspiring, Mr. Ward! Sending love from the Philippines.

  17. Nazhif Edsel

    Can you make it to accoustic version?

  18. Hollow BLight

  19. Debbie Ray

    Hello my friends, liq...


    ชอบเพลงนี้มากเลย แต่ทําไมยอดวิวน้อยจัง น่าจะเยอะกว่านี้นะ

  21. Levet 101

    The outcasts, the broken, the sad, the beat down, the hurt, the lonely and the depressed are the strongest people alive and have faced the truth of the world fairly to soon...... but did we ever deserve to face such a fate? Did we need this? Did we earn this? Only so many can live through the war of unfair life no matter how strong they are or seem. I can say I relate or some shit but all of our story's are different and although similar maybe but who else can agree that you get upset when someone tells you they understand? Or that we need to move on? To forget the past? If and only if they understand they wouldn't tell you to forget because if you try it would only get worse. Should we envy those who seem happy? Or be concerned because its like looking in a mirror who's to say they aren't the same? Just being alive is great within it self. Being alive maybe just maybe there is hope. I tend to ramble so this is probably all over the place but I can't generally say it will get better because no one knows. No one knows when or where. We ask others in terms of hope but that hope gets misplaced. Goodnight or Good Morning everyone. Good luck everyone.

    Lonely seasons cultivate growth and patience in preparation to receive the greatest love of all; the love God has waiting ahead for us. Thank you for portraying this and sharing the raw emotions we all feel during these trying times! I am happy to be lonely while developing my singleness in Christ and trusting God with whatever lies ahead. I've found peace far beyond my own understanding. Big love to you, Tyler!

    You sing from you heart and you feel every single word with emotion TBH the first few times I heard this song I cried I don't have heartbreak but everyone I get involved with gets hurt or they hurt me. I feel like this reminds me of my mum coz no matter what I do I'll always be the mistake of her life but songs like these keep me going 5 more years till I'm 18 and then I'll escape from the hell that I'm in...... Thank you
