'Lonely' is a song depicting a time in my life when I was engulfed by alcohol and the consequences that brings. Sweating, paranoia, shaking etc. 'Waiting for the ominous ring from the telephone' is a reference to Creditors or Bailliffs chasing me for monies owed, bills not paid. Scary times. Eventually the penny dropped thanks to a number of incidents. My health deteriorated, I became homeless for one night and a Niece of mine told me i needed to change to remain as part of the family. Now, I'm settled, I'm Married to Kath, I don't drink, I live in a comfortable house, I don't owe anybody any money and am now an integral part of the family.
