Verse 1

Girl next door with a heart of gold,

Always put your own pain on hold,

Always followed the light in the sky,

And now when it's in front of your eyes,

You still remember being abandoned with a broken promise.

And you can't cross the distance between you and "I need this."

Chorus

Then a voice in your head tells you, hey loner,

You ain't alone now, your heart's got an owner,

And nobody's gonna love you as much as he does,

You ain't ever gonna find so much care, so much trust.

So it's okay to take his hand, cry on his shoulder.

Hey loner, open up, open up, don't grow colder.

Verse 2

Girl next door with a broken smile,

Been on your own for quite a while,

Cleaning up after your momma's mess,

And always hiding it from your face-

Pretending so nobody can know and nobody can see,

Just how helplessly shattered you yourself can sometimes be.

Chorus

Then a voice in your head tells you, hey loner,

You ain't alone now, your heart's got an owner,

And nobody's gonna love you as much as he does,

You ain't ever gonna find so much care, so much trust.

So it's okay to take his hand, cry on his shoulder.

Hey loner, open up, open up, don't grow colder.

Bridge

You took down your iron walls to let him in.

Now open up the door, let out your feelings,

Your every need, your stress, your fears,

Your panicked frenzies, and all your tears.

Yes, it's okay to take his hand, cry on his shoulder.

Hey loner, open up, open up, don't grow colder.

Chorus

Then a voice in your head tells you, hey loner,

You ain't alone now, your heart's got an owner,

And nobody's gonna love you as much as he does,

You ain't ever gonna find so much care, so much trust.

So it's okay to take his hand, cry on his shoulder.

Hey loner, open up, open up, don't grow colder.
