Grant Bentley: Music

Lonely on the Range

(Grant Bentley)
August 1, 2015
Written by Grant Bentley
This song is about the loss of confidence that comes when a relationship is colored with the possibility of loving alternatives. It was written from a place of self-doubt and worry - not a happy combination. I may embellish the story for dramatic effect but the feelings are real enough.
Who do you run to?
Who has captured your heart?
Who is the phone for?
And when did this start?
Who is the phone for?

Where are you going?
And why can’t I go?
When did you leave me?
And how did I not know?
When did you leave me?

Chorus
LONELY ON THE RANGE
So lonely like the sage.
Lover what a change
Leavin’ me…ON THE RANGE.

How can I help you?
Don’t worry I’ll be fine.
I know how to do this
A broken home, a second time
And I know how to do this.

Repeat Chorus
Bridge
Baby we must have lost our way
But I have one last thing I gotta say

I’m still in love with you.
Does that seem so strange?
Our story could be ending
When your heart turns the page.
And our story could be ending
The way things are trending
Are we just pretending?

Alternative Chorus
LONELY ON THE RANGE
So lonely like the sage.
Baby what a change
Leavin’ me LONELY ON THE RANGE.
Lover what a change
Leavin’ me…ON THE RANGE
