AN: I don't own the song, simply borrowing it from Green Day. Enjoy.

I sang as I walked down the cold street, nothing more than a light jacket over my shoulders:

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I do walk a lonely road, but this isn't the only one I've known. I've been all over the United States, and I'm finally back to the hometown I was born in, hopefully for good. I don't remember it, or where it goes, but it is home to me. I walk alone: no friends, no memories.

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

The street truly is empty: no cars, no people, only houses. The street signs says 'something Boulevard'. Wouldn't it be hilarious if I was on the corner of Broken and Dreams? No, not really, I guess. The entire city is sleeping. No, scratch that- a car just drove by, scaring the hell out of me with their throwing of insults. Plus, I was in a world of my own, being the only one and I walk alone.

I walk alone
I walk alone

Yes, I walk alone, truly alone is this cold, dark world; dark street.

I walk alone
I walk a...

What comes next? Oh, yeah:

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Right now, I don't even have my shadow walking with me unless I'm standing under the constant stream of pale light these streetlights give off. And that's when I get scared. It would be nice if someone would find me, but until then I walk alone.

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

If there was a line, I could walk down it, but there's one in my mind. Sometimes I'm on the edge of sanity and other times… but I always walk alone.

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

Just look at me, people! Can I really fool this many people with who I am? Kill me so I know I can die, but I'll always walk alone.

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Still no shadow, but I don't want one right now. It would be nice if someone would find me, but until then I walk alone. Through my front door, down the stairs and through the empty house to my bedroom, I kept singing:

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I walk alone
I walk a...

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

Alone, always alone. I kept singing as I changed into my pajamas:

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone...

Then, and only then, when I was in my pajamas, did I completely break down, knowing I was truly alone.
