"Are You Sure" as written by Homer Banks and Raymond E. Jackson....
Oh, look around you
Look down the bar from you
The lonely faces that you see
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

These are your friends
But are they real friends
Do they love you the same as me
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

You seem in such a hurry to live this kind of life
You've caused so many tears and misery

Look around you, take a good look
And tell me what you see
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

Don't let my tears persuade you, I had hoped I wouldn't cry
But lately, teardrops seem a part of me

Oh, look around you, take a good look
At all the lonely used-to-be's
Are you sure that this is where you want to be

    General Commentone of the most haunting songs I have ever heard.

    brilliantly used in Season One of LOST - "House of the Rising Sun".

    so simple and yet, so powerful.
