Janis Ian:
"The days are okay,
I watch the TV in the afternoon.

If I get lonely,
The sound of other voices,
Other rooms, are near to me,
I'm not afraid.

The operator,
She tells the time,
It's good for a laugh.

There's always radio,
And for a dime, I can talk to God,
Dial-a-Prayer,
Are you there?
Do you care?
Are you there?

And in the winter,
Extra blankets for the cold,
Fix the heater, getting old.
I am wiser now, you know,
And still as big a fool
Concerning you.

I met your friend.
She's very nice,
What can I say?

It was an accident,
I never dreamed we'd meet again this way,
You're looking well.
I'm not afraid.

You have a lovely home,
Just like a picture.
No, I live alone.

I found it easier,
You must remember how I never like
The party life,
Up all night,
Lovely wife,
You have a lovely wife.

And in the winter,
Extra blankets for the cold,
Fix the heater, getting old.
You are with her now, I know,
I'll live alone forever,
Not together now."
