You laugh at the people
Who walk outside on the sidewalk
And you talk to yourself so much
When you see other people you can't talk

This time it's true
The charade is through
And you can't seem to run away from you
Away from you

And the haggard ex-lover of a long-time loser
Stands dejectedly by the door
Doesn't Lenny live here anymore?
Are you sure?

You sit at the desk
To lose your life in a letter
But the words don't seem to come
And you know that they're [unverified] better

And it's all so strange
Pictures lose their frame
And I'll bet you never guessed
There was so much pain
So much pain

Until the haggard
Ex-lover of a long-time loser
Stands dejectedly by the door
Doesn't Lenny live here anymore?
Are you sure?

The moon, she shines too soon and simply sadly
You loved your love so much that you'd strangle her madly
And it's all so slow time has ceased to flow
And the whistling whore knows something you don't know

And the haggard ex-lover of a long-time loser
Stands dejectedly by the door
Doesn't Lenny live here anymore?
Are you sure?

You swore you'd store your love for one time only
Now you searched the books in vain
For better word for lonely
And you're torn apart no other love will start
And you, you'd like to steal a happy heart

A happy heart
Then the haggard ex-lover of a long-time loser
Stands dejectedly by the door
Doesn't Lenny live here anymore?
Are you sure?

The fat official smiles
At the pass on the border
And the hungry broom makes
Sure that the room is in order

You pull the shade
All the beds are made
As your lips caress
The razor of the blade
Of the blade

And the haggard ex-lover of a long-time loser
Stands dejectedly by the door
Doesn't Lenny live here anymore?
Are you sure?

The soul of the sun shines
Just outside of the winter
The shoulders charged
The boards of the barricade
Is splintered

Now at last alone
The flashlight is shown
Hello inside is there anybody home?
Anybody home?

It's the haggard ex-lover of a long-time loser
Standing dejectedly by the door
Doesn't Lenny live here anymore?

Are you sure?
Are you sure?
Are you sure?
