How do You Get That Lonely Lyrics?

It was just another story printed on the second pageUnderneath the Tiger’s football scoreIt said he was only eighteen, a boy about my ageThey found him face down on his bedroom floorThere’ll be services on Fridat at the Lawrence Funeral HomeThen out on Mooresville highway, they’ll lay him ‘neath a stone….How do you get that lonely, how do you hurt that badTo make you make the call, that havin’ no life at allIs better than the life that you hadHow do you feel so empty, you want to let it all goHow do you get that lonely….and nobody knowDid his girlfriend break up with him, did he buy or steal that gun?Did he lose a fight with drugs or alcohol?Did his Mom and Daddy forget to say I love you Son?Did no one see the writing on the wall?Now I’m not blamin’ anybody, we all do the best we canI know hindsight’s 20/20, but I still don’t understand…..How do get that lonely, how do you get that sadTo make you make the call, that havin’ no life at allIs better than the life that you hadHow do you fell so empty, you want to let it all goHow do you get that lonely…..and nobody knowIt was just another story printed on the second pageUnderneath the Tiger’s football score………
