"I Walk Alone" as written by Thomas Allan Flowers, Douglas James Eldridge, Richard C. Ivanisevich and Fred Roger Jr. Nelson....
I can't take this anymore
And I'm almost pretty sure
I've been here before
I can't take this any longer
I won't heal until I'm stronger
Strong enough to not be afraid
Of what anybody thinks
Of what anybody says
About the way
About the way I am
So I'll wait until the day
When those feelings fade away
Then I'll make my break

I can't take this anymore
And I'm almost pretty sure
I've been here before
I can't take this any longer
I won't heal until I'm stronger
Strong enough to not be afraid
So I leave it up to you
Yeah I leave it in your hands
Respect your wishes and your demands
But if it was up to me
Honey we'd already be back home
And living out our dreams
Living out

Everybody and everything I've known
Never taught me how to stand up on my own
Had to learn it from the one who let me go
Now I walk alone, yeah I walk alone, yeah
Living blissfully

I guess you had to step away
To make me want to be
A bigger man, a bigger man than that
I need you by my side
As I take it all in stride
I put away, I put away my pride
Oh I leave it up to you
Yeah I leave it in your hands
Respect your wishes and your demands
But if it was up to me
Honey we'd already be back at home
And living out

Everybody and everything I've known
Never taught me how to stand up on my own
Had to learn it from the one who let me go
Now I walk alone
Yeah I walk alone, yeah

I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk alone
I walk, oh yeah

    General CommentUnfortunately, I too, always felt this really applied to me. I do hate it though. I grow tired of always being lonely.

    saw them in concert, they were cool.

    General CommentI never saw this as a break-up song, but now I can totally see it. I've always thought of this as an anthem song, sort of saying, "one of these days i'm not going to care what anyone says and I'm just going to be myself." Whatever the meaning, it's still a great song!

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who's girlfriend broke up with him because he doesn't know who he really is without her "won't heal until i'm stronger strong enough to not be afraid of what anybody thinks of what anybody says
    about the way about the way i am". When his girlfriend broke up with him he learned how to "walk alone" -"had to learn it from the one who let me go now i walk alone, yeah i walk alone, yeah". Now that he has learned to be his own person and understands her reasons for breaking up and he wants to get back together, but is leaving that decision to her and respects any decision she makes - "oh i leave it up to you yeah i leave it in your hands respect your wishes and your demands."
