This is the first time on my own
This is the first time I've ever been alone like this
The silence covers wall to wall
I never noticed how suddenly the night can fall

Far away
I can hear the city street
Drift away
I can be beside you in my dream

In another world
I could walk away
Pretend there was nothing
I wouldn't need you anyway
In another world--
But not in this world

I have no stronghold to defend
But still my heart is outside
Beating at the door again
No promises to make or keep
And though I'm free to go
I end up chasing sleep again

Drift away
I wonder if you'll think of me
Yesterday
There's the place I'm going endlessly

In another world
I could walk away
Pretend there was nothing
I wouldn't need you anyway
In another world--
But not in this world

And though I realize the truth
Is not idealized in youth
Or should I be surprised to find
That you are never off my mind

Drift away
I wonder if you'll think of me
Yesterday
Is the place I'm going endlessly

In another world
I could walk away
Pretend there was nothing
I wouldn't need you anyway
In another world--
But not in this world

This is the first time on my own
This is the first time I've ever been alone like this
