I am all alone, on my own
This pain is all I’ve ever known
In the dark, no one to hold me
As lonely as a tall palm tree
Unreal feeling I have to show
Feel numb, every muscle, every bone
Hiding the scars so they won’t show
Darkness, no happiness to see
Sitting here, all alone
My body cold and hard as stone
Thoughts in my head like a cyclone
Leave me alone, let me be
The pain I have yet, you can’t see
I sit here while the feelings grow
I am alone, on my own
