In "Don't Fall in Love With a Lonely Girl," Freedy Johnston has a breezy way with a lurid state of affairs.
May 27, 2010 Johnston isn't a flashy lyricist, but at his best, he has a subtle flair for wordplay. "Don't Fall in Love With a Lonely Girl" may seem, at first blush, like an innocuous enough title for a song, but don't be fooled: What unfolds is a wry and twisting narrative of love gone wrong, as infectious as it is infected with malice.
