This song was first released on the Some Days Are Diamonds Album. It is the only album it appears on.

For someone who's got everything, life can still be rough
If things are what you're lookin' for, there's never quite enough
And all the tea in China won't make a house a home
You can be a millionaire and still be sleepin' alone

There might be some one night stands to ease the pain inside
Or someone you can call around if you've lost all your pride
Please don't be mistaken. I don't mean to put that down
I know there's times when anything is better than sleepin' alone

Sleepin' alone can make a bottle just about your dearest friend
Sleepin' alone can make you swear to God this night will never end

You know it's not company you are lookin' for
You know it's not just pleasure, you know it's somethin' more
You know it's not the answer if it's not like comin' home
If the one who's there doesn't really care, it's worse than sleepin' alone

Sleepin' alone can make a bottle just about your dearest friend
Sleepin' alone can make you swear to God this night will never end

For someone who's got everything, life can still be rough
If things are what you're lookin' for, there's never quite enough
And all the gold that glitters won't make a house a home
You can be a millionaire and still be sleepin' alone
You might be a millionaire and still be sleepin' alone
