Reba McEntire Once You’ve Learned To Be Lonely Lyrics

You’re asking me to open up

I’m tryin’ my best to give enough

To keep this love alive

It wouldn’t be so hard for me to do

If it hadn’t have been for all my heart’s been through

But once you’ve learned to be lonely

And lonely is the only thing you’ve known

It begins to feel like home

It becomes your comfort zone

Once you’ve learned to be without someone

And settle for the silence of an empty room

Oh, it changes you

There’s a lot you have to undo

Once you’ve learned to be lonely

It becomes a habit of the heart

To be afraid and even start

To try and love again

I want to give you myself to you

But I’ve been alone that I’m scared to move

But once you’ve learned to be lonely

And lonely is the only thing you’ve known

It begins to feel like home

It becomes your comfort zone

Once you’ve learned to be without someone

And settle for the silence of an empty room

Oh, it changes you

There’s a lot you have to undo

Once you’ve learned to be lonely

I’ve built walls but I feel them falling down

Touch by touch your love is my way out

But once you’ve learned to be lonely

And lonely is the only thing you’ve known

It begins to feel like home

It becomes your comfort zone

Once you’ve learned to be without someone

And settle for the silence of an empty room

Oh, it changes you

There’s a lot you have to undo

Once you’ve learned to be lonely

There’s a lot you have to undo

Once you’ve learned to be lonely
