I walk a crooked twisting path
That seems to be landing nowhere
I lead a loner's life
Not what I meant to do

I do what seemed to be
the right thing at one time
But now that time has passed
and I'm the last one
Walking down this path

I walk along the same old streets
Where we used to meet by chance
But now there's not one familiar face
THere's not one knowing glance

There's just my memory
A problem that I seem to have
Is not being able to appreciate
or understand
The present until it's past
And so it goes away

    General CommentAnother great song from Billie Joe that expresses the isolation that ADHD sometimes causes. Very similar sentiment to Green Day's "Walking Alone".
