Lonely
Joel Corry Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

L-l-l-l-lonely, l-l-l-l-lonely
L-l-l-l-lonely now

You were the one who said it's over
Now you wanna come back
So take your hand off my shoulder
This time it's not like that, 'cause I know where your heart's at
I know you like to be alone, but hate being lonely
When you see me doing well, that's when you call me
Now I'm doing fine, don't need you in my life
I guess you're missing me now

Just because you're lonely, doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely, don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?
Just because you're lonely, doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely, don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

You say you've changed and you're different
But I don't wanna hear that
Your friends are saying that you miss me
But I don't really know that, 'cause I know where your heart's at

I know you like to be alone, but hate being lonely
When you see me doing well, that's when you call me
Now I'm doing fine, don't need you in my life
I guess you're missing me now

Just because you're lonely, doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely, don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

L-l-l-l-lonely, l-l-l-l-lonely
L-l-l-l-lonely now
L-l-l-l-lonely, l-l-l-l-lonely
L-l-l-l-lonely now

You don't have to lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
You can speak your mind, mind, mind, mind, mind
You don't have to lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
You could've been mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

Just because you're lonely, doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely, don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

L-l-l-l-lonely, l-l-l-l-lonely
L-l-l-l-lonely now
L-l-l-l-lonely, l-l-l-l-lonely




L-l-l-l-lonely now
Just because you're lonely

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Joel Corry's song Lonely depict the story of a former lover who left the relationship and now wants to come back, but the singer doesn't want to fall into that trap again. The lyrics convey a sense of empowerment and strength in the singer's position not to let themselves be played with.


The repeated "l-l-l-l-lonely" in the chorus creates a sense of isolation and echoes the feeling of loneliness, which the former lover is experiencing. The lyrics also highlight the difference between being alone and being lonely, with the former being a choice and the latter being a feeling of emptiness and sadness.


The line "I know you like to be alone but hate being lonely" portrays the former lover's mindset and explains why they want to come back. They miss the companionship but not necessarily the person themselves.


Overall, the lyrics to "Lonely" provide a relatable story of heartbreak and moving on. The song encourages listeners not to let themselves be taken advantage of just because someone else is feeling lonely.

Piosenka:

La la la la lonely, la la la la lonely
La la la la lonely now

You are the one who said it's over
Now you wanna come back
So take your hand off my shoulder
This time it's not like that
'Cause I know where your heart's at

I know you like to be alone, but hate being lonely
When you see me doing well, that's when you call me
Yeah, I'm doing fine
Don't need you in my life
I guess you're missing me now

Just because you're lonely
Doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely
Don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

Just because you're lonely
Doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely
Don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

You say you're changed and you're different
But I don't wanna hear that
Your friends are saying that you miss me
But I already know that
'Cause I know where your heart's at

I know you like to be alone, but hate being lonely
When you see me doing well, that's when you call me
Yeah, I'm doing fine
Don't need you in my life
I guess you're missing me now

Just because you're lonely
Doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely
Don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

La la la la lonely, la la la la lonely
La la la la lonely now
La la la la lonely, la la la la lonely
La la la la lonely now

You don't have to lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
You can speak your mind, mind, mind, mind, mind
You don't have to lie, lie, lie, lie, lie
You could've been mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

Just because you're lonely (Just because you're lonely)
Doesn't mean we go back to the start
Just because you're lonely (Just because you're lonely)
Don't mean that you can play with my heart
Who do you think you are?

La la la la lonely, la la la la lonely
La la la la lonely now
La la la la lonely, la la la la lonely
La la la la lonely
Just because you're lonely
