Overcome...

I just love this song, and have it on repeat in my car, learning the words. Just now, on my way to work, while into the beauty of the melody, and taking in the words, I just started crying. My life is so blessed with so many close friends and wonderful people. I was just overcome with the sadness that lonely people must feel. I'm so grateful for the fullness of my life.

Artist: Reba McEntire
Album: Room to Breathe


Once You've Learned to Be Lonely

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
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 and even start
To try and love again
I want to give you myself to you
But I've been alone that I'm scared to move

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

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
