And I Am Alone

Ever since the beginning

It was just you and me

Took so long in denial

For us to finally see

Some time has passed

I thought we'd grown

Now we're together

But I am alone

The feeling is mutual

Or so I thought

Care should come naturally

And can't be taught

I see longing in your eyes

When you walk me home

But still, we're together

And I am alone

We walk these hollow halls

So close yet so far away

Would your life be the same

Without me in it for a day?

It's so easy to trample on

These seeds that have just been sown

Are wein this together,

Or am I in this alone?
