Jack Savoretti – When You’re Lonely Lyrics

Jack Savoretti – When You’re Lonely Lyrics

When we first met, we’d talk for hours
You wore that dress, the one with flowers
When you walked in, I saw the rest of my life

Were we pretending, all those nights?
Dancing to silence in the moonlight
Was it a beautiful waste of time?

You only call me to say you miss me
When I’m far away from home
You only call me to say you want me
You only love me when you’re lonely, oh

(You only love, love me when you’re lonely)
(You only love, love me when you’re lonely)

We keep spinning back around
And we always end up here
When you mix jealousy with sympathy, oh
Whoa, it always ends in tears

You only call me to say you miss me
When I’m far away from home
You only call me to say you want me
When you think I’m not alone
You only tell me what I wanna hear
When you think that I’m not listening
Doesn’t matter anyway
You only love me when you’re lonely, oh

True love
Doesn’t always last forever
True love
Can’t always keep two lovers together
Oh, this is true love
This is true love, oh

Don’t call me to say you miss me
When I’m far away from home
You only call me to say you want me
When you think I’m not alone
You only tell me what I want to hear
When you think that I’m not listening
Doesn’t matter anyway
Oh, you only love me when you’re lonely, oh

(You only love, love me when you’re lonely)
(You only love, love me when you’re lonely)
(You only love, love me when you’re lonely)
(You only love, love me when you’re lonely)
