One is the Loneliest Number

One is the Loneliest Number

 

One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It’s the loneliest number since the number one

 

But you have to get to two

To see how that really flies with you

 

And for now at least ~ we’re still chasing the beast

Of a consecutive second win of the Baseball World Series

 

If we get there ~ then we can ask ourselves

Do we really feel lonelier now?

Or do all these shooting star visions we’re having

Really say ~ I’m feeling pretty damn good!

 

We’re not there yet ~ but a 3.5 game lead over Oakland

Still feels a whole lot better than the 2.5 game lead we had yesterday

 

It’s only a one game difference over 24 hours ~ but

It fails to invite loneliness among Astros fans

As long as it keeps moving the ones

In the direction they just took overnight!
