Ain't it hard when you wake up in the morning
and you find out that those other days are gone?
All you have is memories of happiness
lingering on

All your dreams and your lovers won't protect you
they're only passing through you in the end
they'll leave you stripped of all that they can get to
and wait for you to come back again

Yet still a light is shining
from that lamp on down the hall
maybe a star of Bethlehem
wasn't a star at all

    General Commenti always felt this song is dealing with the fact that we're all alone in this world no matter how you slice it and that the only one you can depend on is yourself.that you should realize that this is all there is and so you better make the most of it doing what makes you happy and not depend on the after life or someone else.

    General CommentExtra stanza (from live versions) that goes between the second and third stanzas:

    You might wonder, "Who can I turn to?"
    On this cold and chilly night of gloom
    the answer to that question
    is nowhere in this room
