I’m Not Lonely

I’m not lonely sleeping all alone

you think i’m scared

but i’m a big girl

i don’t cry or anything
I have a great big bed

to roll around in and lots of space

and i don’t dream bad dreams

like i used to have

that you were leaving me anymore
Now that you’re gone

i don’t dream

and no matter what you think

i’m not lonely sleeping all alone…
