lyrics

The loneliest that you can be is when you are in love
With someone who doesn’t want the same thing that you want
And you might try to change them, and one day you’ll give up
The loneliest that you can be is when you are in love

The loneliest you’ll ever feel is knowing it’s too late
And maybe that your strategy of hoping things would change
Is just another entry in your long line of mistakes
The loneliest you’ll ever feel is knowing it’s too late

I watch this old town
Run down to the water
All of the lights are coming on
In all of those houses
Blessed with sons and daughters
Slowly growing up

Once I thought the loneliest were running wild and free
Until I learned the hard way that darling, actually
It’s when you’re two but only one is wishing you were three
Once I thought the loneliest were running wild and free

I watch this old town
Run down to the water
All of the lights are coming on
In all of those houses
Blessed with sons and daughters
Slowly growing up

The loneliest that you can be is when you are in love

about

Steve Wallis Paris, France

Steve Wallis writes honest, clear eyed folk songs, driven by his shrewd fingerstyle guitar, and his wry gift for finding joy in the melancholy. His songs are old letters from ex lovers, regrets folded into fond souvenirs, that final glance back before rushing onwards.

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
