“You come home late and you come home early
you come on big when you’re feeling small
you come home straight and you come home curly
sometimes you don’t come home at all

So what in the world’s come over you
and what in heaven’s name have you done
you’ve broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
you’re out there running just to be on the run

Well I got a heart that burns with a fever
and I got a worried and a jealous mind
how can a love that’ll last forever
get left so far behind

So what in the world’s come over you
and what in heaven’s name have you done
you’ve broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
you’re out there running just to be on the run

It’s a mighty mean and a dreadful sorrow
it’s crossed the evil line today
well, how can you ask about tomorrow
we ain’t got one word to say

So what in the world’s come over you
and what in heaven’s name have you done
you’ve broken the speed of the sound of loneliness
you’re out there running just to be on the run

You’re out there running just to be on the run
you’re out there running just to be on the run
you’re out there running just to be on the run”.

Citazioni.

Speed of the Sound of Loneliness is a song written by John Prine. It was released as a track on Prine’s 1986 album German Afternoons. The song gained further fame with a duet recording by Prine and American singer Nanci Griffith in the latter’s 1993 album Other Voices, Other Rooms and the release of the track as a single. The song has been covered by many, notably Kim Carnes who released it as a single from her 1988 album View from the House and by the English band Alabama 3 on their 1997 album Exile on Coldharbour Lane and American singer/songwriter Jeffrey Foucault in 2009 in his Prine tribute album Shoot the Moon Right Between the Eyes.
