You're asking me to open up
I'm trying my best to give enough
To keep this love alive
It wouldn't be so hard for me to do
If it hadn't been for all my hearts been through
But once you've learned to be lonely
And lonely is the only thing you've known
It begins to feel like home
It becomes your comfort zone
And once you've learned to be without someone
And settle for the silence of an empty room
Oh it changes you
There's alot you have to undo
Once you've learned to be lonely
It becomes a habit of the heart
To be afraid to even start
To try and love again
I want to give myself to you
But I've been alone so long that I'm scared, scared to move
But once you've learned to be lonely
And lonely is the only thing you've known
It begins to feel like home
It becomes your comfort zone
And once you've learned to be without someone
And settle for the silence of an empty room
Oh it changes you
There's alot you have to undo
Once you've learned to be lonely
I built these walls but I feel them falling down
Touch by touch your love is my way out
But once you've learned to be lonely
And lonely is the only thing you've known
It begins to feel like home
It becomes your comfort zone
And once you've learned to be without someone
And settle for the silence of an empty room
Oh it changes you
There's alot you have to undo
Once you've learned to be lonely
There's alot you have to undo
Once you've learned to be lonely
