I’ve been livin’ alone for so long, can’t be true.
I’ve been livin’ alone in this house, here with you, look at me,
all the good times went to sea, in a boat, that won’t float,
who are we?
I’ve been takin’ a chance that I’ll live, along time.
I’ve been takin’ a chance that these words, all will rhyme,
every time, and I’ll sing them all just fine, what I say, anyway,
a waste of time.
I’ve been talkin’ a lot to a friend, one who cares.
I‘ve been thinkin’ about all the kindness that she shares,
and my pain, seems to vanish, with her name, it’s the same,
as the burden, that I bare.
I’ve been thinkin’ that it is no use, to resist.
I’ve been thinkin’ that back there at home, I’m not missed,
went to leave, gave the kids a, goodbye kiss, then I walked,
to the dock, clenched my fist.
Maybe it’s best that I stay home alone, do what’s right.
Maybe it’s right that my love stays unknown, one more night, for the sake, of not making a mistake, and what’s best,
for the rest, leave to fate.
All alone, for the sake of the kids.
All alone, my emotions well hid.
All alone, pondering all I shall miss.
All alone, starved for a loving kiss.
All alone, with the tears that I cry.
All alone, as my life passes by,
and I slowly die,
this is goodbye.
