Lyrics

In a little while from now If I'm not feeling any less sour I promise myself to treat myself And visit a nearby tower And climbing to the top will throw myself off In an effort to make it clear to who Don't know what it's like when you're shattered Left standing in the lurch at a church Where people saying, "My god, that's tough She's stood him up, No point in us remaining. We may as well go home." As I did on my own Alone again, naturally To think that only yesterday I was cheerful, bright and gay Looking forward to, well who wouldn't do, The role i was about to play But as if to knock me down Reality came around And without so much, as a mere touch Broke me into little pieces Leaving me to doubt All about God in His mercy For if He really does exist Why did He desert me? In my hour of need I truly am indeed, alone again, naturally It seems to me that there are more hearts Wounded in the world that can't be mended Left unattended What do we do? What do we do? (instrumental break) ...Alone again, naturally Now looking back over the years And whatever else that appears I remember I cried when my father died Never wishing to hide the tears And at sixty-five years old My mother, God rest her soul, Couldn't understand why the only man She had ever loved had been taken Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken Despite encouragement from me No words were ever spoken And when she passed away I cried and cried all day Alone again, naturally Alone again, naturally
