When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Some times I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't want to live, all by myself anymore

All by myself
Don't want to be, all by myself anymore

    General CommentI'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but the main melody line was lifted directly from the second movement of Rachmanov's Second Piano Concerto. Not a bad place to steal, I'll admit, but he can't be credited for the melody (see my comment to "Never Gonna Fall in Love Again" for, yes, another Rachmaninov theft).
