Alone Again. Interpreta: Gilbert O'Sullivan.

In a Little while from now
If I’m not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
and visit a nearby tower

And climbing to the top
Will throw myself off
In an effort to
Make it clear to who ever
what it's like when you're shattered

Left standing in the lurch
At a church where people saying
"My god, that's tough,""she stood him up"
"no point in us remaining""
"We may as well go home "
as I did on my own

Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to who wouldn't
do the role I was about to play?

But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much
As a mere touch cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about god in his mercy
who if he really does exist
Why did he desert me?
In my hour of need I truly am indeed

Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts broken
in the world that can't be mended
Left unattended what do we do?
What do we do?

Alone again, naturally

Looking back over the years
and whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
never wishing to hide the tears

And at sixty-five years old
My mother, god rest her soul
Couldn’t understand why the only man
she had ever loved had been taken

Leaving her to start
With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day

Alone again, naturally,

Alone again, naturally...
