It’s amazing here how a couple years can do a number on your soul and I’m gonna write, my number on you. So you won’t forget me when you’re walking home drunkenly, but it’s Brooklyn so you’re not an alcoholic, I’m gonna find a way through. And you’re not the best but you’re not the worst and I can see our naked bodies waking up on a Sunday and, reading the news. Over orange juice and a piece of toast and a smile so wide just cuz I’m not alone anymore.

[Chorus: I can’t be alone, I can’t be alone anymore]

Well I used to think love was all we needed and I tried and I tried but I never succeeded. So tell me, what’s the use? And then I got a good job and I worked real hard so I could get what I want and I bought a new car, and that felt good. But then the car broke down on a trip out of town and I had no one to call there was no one around, I got so blue. So I thought you could come over for a drink or a meal, we can watch lots of movies and forget how to feel or a meal and a drink and forget how to think, eat pizza together and call this forever cuz

I can’t be alone.

Free chocolate for breakfast? #yesplease #brooklynlove

intellectual-surfing said: Hi Lily, I saw you at BMI today performing at Take your kids to work day today. I was one of the kids today, but i was older than most of the kids there and i wasnt able to tell you how talented you were. But I found your tumblr so now I can, but anyways I wonder if you have anymore music made, because i love your voice and would like to hear more!

Hi there!

What a lovely note. Thanks for reaching out. What’s your name? Did we get to chat at all? If not, sorry we didn’t get to talk in person! I definitely have more music - it’s for “big kids,” so not as full of jokes ;) You can listen on my website:, stream it live on Spotify, and if you shoot me an email at I can add you to my newsletter list and send you a free download.

Happy Friday!
