Rose Cousins – The Reprise (The Benefits Of Being Alone) Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It's breakneck Monday morning
And I can take it slow
Pour cream into my coffee
Fresh from off the stove

I replay my favourite saddest song
To remember how it goes
Or I pick up where I left off
With last night's episode

[Chorus 1]
If you're interested
I could tell you more
Of the benefits
Of being alone

[Verse 2]
Each day I work a little bit
On plans of my own
I book flights to all the places
I have wanted to go

Listening to records
Monophonic stereo
Crawl into bed and check for
Unread messages on my phone

[Chorus 2]
If you're curious
I could give you a guided tour
Of the benefits
Of being alone

[Bridge 1]
If I don't end up with anyone
Could be six days to find my body gone
But think of all the space
I get to roam

Don't you worry about me
And all my solo reverie
I'm the only one who's there
When I get home

[Chorus 3]
To all the benefits
The benefits
Of being alone

[Verse 3]
Broken conversations
As you get the kids ready to go
We'll take about the girls weekend
We constantly postpone

I envy how you're steady
And you envy how I roam
And how brave I am to sing about it
On a microphone

[Chorus 4]
No matter baby
That's what makes the show
The benefits
Of being alone

[Bridge 2]
Don't you worry about me
And all my solo reverie
I decide
Where everything will go

Then I return
To everything just so
The only one who's there
When I get home

[Outro]
To all the benefits
All the benefits
All the benefits
Of being alone
