"Alone" as written by and John C. Popper....
I said "I love you"
She began to cry
She said she needed a friend
I said "I'll try"
Soon we'd say nothing
Somehow I never wondered why

You see, she left me
She left me
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone

I'd loved her always
She didn't know
I tried patience
Let a friendship grow
I tried to keep her
That's what made her go

You see, she left me
She left me
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone

Beauty and the beast
Was how it seemed to be
A love like hers
Ain't meant for guys like me
Some call me crazy
Some politely call me free
But either way you see

You see, she left me
She left me
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone

I'm trying to forget you but it just won't work
Think I'm losing my mind, think I'm going berserk
I love you with a passion that you just don't know
And I kinda wish right now that I was telling you so
I could rant, or rave, or play some little game
But when I look into your eyes, it all seems the same
That you weren't meant for me and that's a sad but true fact
Now I don't care how I look and don't care how I act
'Cause you set me free
I'm a man among men
But when I think of what I missed it starts all again

Now alone in the darkness of each new day
My heart is on its own
I want to rip it from my chest and throw it away
Watch this bassman take me home

A low branch
Touching the water
Feels the currents take
A mighty
River bends her
But she won't break
No she won't
No she won't break

I said a candle's
Flame she dances
When a sudden
Tempest blows
She dwindles and dims
Against the cold, cold wind
And then she grows
And then she glows
I said she grows

I may never understand her
Her secret is not to know
Nothing for me to do with or for or to
But I just love to watch her grow
I said I love to watch her grow

I guess some day
Love will soon be here
And maybe then
I'll see things more clear
I guess I got excited
Cause it felt so near
And

You see, she left me
She left me
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone

But I know I'd give my life
Just to hold her now
And who knows
I might see her around

Hopes can always go up
Tears can only come down

You see, she left me
She left me
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone
I'm alone

    General CommentThe 15-minute live version of this song is constantly playing over and over on my computer at home.
    It's the ultimate story about a guy that loves a girl he can't have.
    My favourite song by far.

    General CommentThis song becomes incredibly depressing when you realize you can relate to it. Still amazing though.
