Lyrics for So Lonely by The Police:

Verse 1
Well, someone told me yesterday
That when you throw your love away
You act as if you just don't care
You look as if you're going somewhere
But I just can't convince myself
I couldn't live with no one else
And I can only play that part
And sit and nurse my broken heart

Chorus
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

Verse 2
Now no-one's knocked upon my door
For a thousand years, or more
All made up and nowhere to go
Welcome to this one man show
Just take a seat, they're always free
No surprise, no mystery
In this theatre that I call my soul
I always play the starring role

Chorus
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely
So lonely

Outro
I feel lonely, I'm so lonely, I feel so low
I feel lonely, I'm so lonely, I feel so low

Song Facts

“So Lonely” was The Police’s first fusing of punk and reggae that would become not only a pioneering new sound in rock, but also their signature sound. It was the band’s third single, the last from their debut album, peaking at #6 in the UK and #7 in Ireland.

Its lyrics were taken from “Fool In Love”, a song from Sting’s previous band Last Exit. Its chorus, Sting has admitted, is a sped-up reinterpretation of Bob Marley’s “No Woman No Cry”.
