Loner
Don't Be Scared (1982)

I wish I could be as happy as you
I wish I could have as much fun as you do
I wish I could be your friend
but I-I-I'm afraid.

I wish I had my own way
but I rarely do
but I wish I had my way with you
I'm a loner
Loner.
Been a loner since high school - oh yeah
and a loner ain't no fool - oh yeah
I'm a loner - oh - eh - eheh .
Be a loner in a crowded room - oh yeah
take me to an ocean, I'll be loner still
but I wish I could be your friend
I'm a loner - uh - uh.

I'm a loner in my car - oh yeah
sometimes it gets scary - oh yeah
been a loner since high school - oh yeah
and a loner ain't no fool - oh yeah
But I wish I could be as happy as you
and I wish I could have as much fun as you do
I wish I could be your friend
but I-I-I'm afraid
I'm a loner
I'm a loner - uh
lone, lone, lone,
lone, lone, lone, lone
uh-uuh, uh-uuh, loner, uh
I'm a loner...

===========================

Loner

more complicated than it first appears but rewarding in the end
first of all, here's that gorgeous riff that daniel plays on the piano,
tabbed for guitar:
Key:C

C Am7 Fmaj9 G
e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------|
D|---2-0-----2-0-----2-0---2-0-----|
A|-3-----3-0-----3-------------2---|
E|-----------------1-----3---------|
(play this wherever the C-Am7-Fmaj9-G progression appears)


C Am7 Fmaj9 G
I wish I could be as happy as you
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
I wish I could have as much fun as you do
C Am7
I wish I could be your friend
G F C
but I-I-I'm afraid.

C Am7
I wish I had my own way
Fmaj9 G
but I rarely do
C Am7 Fmaj9 G (hold G then G+5)
but I wish I had my way with you
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
I'm a loner
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
Loner.
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
Been a loner since high school - oh yeah
C Am7 Fmaj9 G (hold G then G+5)
and a loner ain't no fool - oh yeah
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
I'm a loner - oh - eh - eheh .
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
Be a loner in a crowded room - oh yeah
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
take me to an ocean, I'll be loner still
C Am7 Fmaj9 G (hold G then G+5)
but I wish I could be your friend
C Am7 Fmaj9 G
I'm a loner - uh - uh.

(the rest follows a similar pattern...)

I'm a loner in my car - oh yeah
sometimes it gets scary - oh yeah
been a loner since high school - oh yeah
and a loner ain't no fool - oh yeah
But I wish I could be as happy as you
and I wish I could have as much fun as you do
I wish I could be your friend
but I-I-I'm afraid
I'm a loner
I'm a loner - uh
lone, lone, lone,
lone, lone, lone, lone
uh-uuh, uh-uuh, loner, uh
I'm a loner...
