Everyone Is Lonely
Heather Anne Campbell
I believe the lyrics and music were both written by Heather Anne Campbell and the performance was by Liz Beebe from The Dustbowl Revival, so I credited it to Heather Anne Campbell because... it's evidently her song. This was made into a short for Fox's ADHD and is great, go watch it. Intro: C x4 Verse: C We're all the same No matter how we've grown G Colors of our skin Defections in our bones There's one thing we share Everyone everywhere C We're all alone G C We're all alone. Chorus: C G Everyone is fundamentally lonely Am Em Whether you trust science or a church F Because we're scared C Some of us make pairs D G And some are still on the search C G But everyone is fundamentally lonely Am Em So here's daily advice F You're in pain C And everyone feels the same D G C So just be ..... nice. C Verse: C What do you lose When life's already the worst G Leave a better tip Let that guy in line first We're all lonely Pay for his coffee C (hold) Pick up that trash (hold) G C I know it's not your trash. C Chorus: C G Everyone is fundamentally lonely Am Em Sometimes it comes out as rage F Screaming in a store C They're lonely at the core D G So be calm when you engage C G Everyone is fundamentally lonely Am Em I'm not saying to sacrifice F Lend some support C At the airport D G C It won't kill you to be nice. C Bridge: F Everything is stupid C Success is a projection D We're all quietly helpless G (hold) Being nice is a connection F Blaring your car horn C Won't make you feel tremendous D But picking up something someone dropped G (hold) Will make this whole thing less horrendous Chorus: C G Everyone is fundamentally lonely Am Em Even ones pretending they're not F Be nice today D * Cm * It'll make things just slightly ok C(hold) G(hold) C(arpeggio) On this lonely, little blue dot. * I don't think these are completely right but I can't figure out what chords they're supposed to be. It's a key change or something and I'm not great at that sort of thing. Let me know if you figure it out and I'll edit it promptly.
