"Born Alone" as written by Thomas Chad, Phil Titus, Benjamin Giddings, Stephen Sparrow and Andrew Hayes....
In my silence
I am strong
When I'm quiet
I belong
And in this solace
I am born
I built an empire
You tore down the walls

I drift slowly
Out of time
And I say some things out of line
So I say nothing, I just hide
You twisted my soul and opened my eyes

Well, time will tell you, you're just getting older
And fear will teach you to shut your eyes
Well, I've made amends with the bones in my closet
I was born alone, but I won't die alone

So can you show me true romance?
Can you teach me how to dance?
Will I find there's a better way than mine
When I'm sober again?

Well, time will tell you you're just getting older
And fear will teach you to shut your eyes
Well I've made amends with the bones in my closet
I was born alone, but I won't die alone

I lay my soul to rest
For you, for you
I lay my soul to rest
I lay my soul to rest
For you, for you
I lay my soul to rest
For you, for you

Well, time will tell you you're just getting older
And fear will teach you to shut your eyes
Well I've made amends with the bones in my closet
I was born alone, but I will not die alone

    General CommentThis is a funeral song for me. By that I mean - I honestly want this song played at my funeral. This is how I feel about my wife.. My queen, my love, my life. In my eyes the meanings of the song are obvious. This person has ultimate love in his/her hands and has made amends with past faults or bad relationships. If life ends NOW - that is alright.

    We are all born alone. I wish everyone could die with someone they love close by. I know I will.

    I was born alone but I will not die alone.

    Thank you Steve and company for this amazing song.
