Perfectly Lonely

Confession: I've only come to love John Mayer's songs recently. I think his new album Battle Studies is full of great songs. Here's the latest song from John that both Ryan and I are loving now. 




"Perfectly Lonely".

Had a little love but I spread it thin

Falling in her arms and out again

Made a bad name for my game round town

Tore out my heart and shut it down



PRE-CHORUS

Nothing to do, nowhere to be

A simple little a kind of free

Nothing to do, no one but me

That's is all I need



CHORUS

I'm perfectly lonely

I'm perfectly lonely

I'm perfectly lonely, yeah

Cause I don't belong to anyone

Nobody belongs to me



I see my friends around from time to time

When their ladies let em slip away

And when they ask me how I'm doing with mine

This is always what I say ...



PRE-CHORUS

Nothing to do, nowhere to be

A simple little kind of free

Nothing to do, no one to be

Is it really hard to see?



CHORUS

I'm perfectly lonely

I'm perfectly lonely

I'm perfectly lonely, yeah

Cause I don't belong to anyone

Nobody belongs to me



And this is not to say

There never comes a day

I'll take my chances and start again

And when I look behind

On all my younger times

I'll have to thank the wrongs

That led me to a love so strong



[INSTRUMENTAL]



CHORUS

I'm perfectly lonely

I'm perfectly lonely

I'm perfectly lonely, yeah

Cause I don't belong to anyone

And nobody belongs --



That's the way, that's the way

That's the way that I want it

That's the way, that's the way

That's the way that I want it

That's the way, that's the way

That's the way that I want it

That's the way, that's the way

That's the way that I want it
