about

“LONELY” is the first single and music video from Tami Neilson’s upcoming album release “Don’t Be Afraid”, out 25 Sept 2015.

This song began being written in 1972 by a young Ron Neilson, who recorded a demo outside a hotel room while on tour across Canada. Decades later, it was completed by his daughter Tami and son Jay when they discovered the demo a week after he passed away in Feb 2015. While grief and loss are entwined in a melancholy dance throughout the lyrics, the music and melody are brought back to life to celebrate the man who laid the foundations of Tami’s musical career. Released on Ron’s birthday, Tami remembers her father in this fitting tribute.

lyrics

LONELY
R. Neilson/ T. Neilson/ J. Neilson

Lonely wears the clothes left in your drawer
Lonely won’t let me go to places we went before
Lonely makes me walk in the rain
With Lonely is where I’ll remain

Lonely smells like aftershave and cigarettes
Lonely looks like photographs of when we met
Lonely stole your side of the bed
Please stop him I want you here instead

I’m Loneliness, the thing love always leaves
A friend to those in need
I’ll keep you company

Lonely sprinkles dust on your guitar
Lonely keeps the tank full in your car
Lonely hushed the ring of the phone
Lonely won’t leave me alone
Lonely, please leave me alone
