You're asking me to open up
I'm tryin' my best to give enough to keep this love alive
It wouldn't be so hard for me to do
If it hadn't have been for all my heart's been through

But once you've learned to be lonely
And lonely is the only thing you've known
It begins to feel like home, it becomes your comfort zone
And once you've learned to be without someone
And settle for the silence of an empty room oh, it changes you
There's a lot you have to undo once you've learned to be lonely

It becomes a habit of the heart
To be afraid to even start to try and love again
I want to give you myself to you
But I've been alone so long that I'm scared, scared to move

Once you've learned to be lonely
And lonely is the only thing you've known
It begins to feel like home, it becomes your comfort zone
And once you've learned to be without someone
And settle for the silence of an empty room oh, it changes you
There's a lot you have to undo once you've learned to be lonely

I've built walls but I feel them falling down
Touch by touch your love is my way out

But once you've learned to be lonely
And lonely is the only thing you've known
It begins to feel like home, it becomes your comfort zone
Once you've learned to be without someone
And settle for the silence of an empty room oh, it changes you
There's a lot you have to undo once you've learned to be lonely
There's a lot you have to undo once you've learned to be lonely
