Somebody somewhere turns out the light
Somebody all alone faces the night
You got to be strong when you're out on your own
'Cause sooner or later we all sleep alone

Nobody nowhere holds the key to your heart
When love's a possession it'll tear you apart
You may have lovers wherever you roam
But sooner or later we all sleep alone

Oh, the young and the young at heart wait
But the wait never ends in the soul
When you feel like it's all blown away
Independence has come and into the night I go
Don't make no promises I can't keep
I won't be no prisoner of somebody's needs
You know I have lovers wherever you roam
But sooner or later, oo, we all sleep alone
We all sleep alone, yeah, yeah
We all sleep alone, we all sleep alone

    General CommentI think this song is about how all relationships end at one point or another, and when they do end you'll feel sad, but at the same time you'll feel relieved because you are no longer "trapped".
