Do you know how it feels to not know a thing about every friend you meet?
Do you know how it feels to have the carpet pulled from 'neath your feet?
Do you know how it feels to see your indomitable heroes be beat?
I hope you don't know,
I hope you never know.

I hope it's only me who's feeling alone tonight
I hope that I'm the only one who can understand what I write
I hope that I'm the only one who's lost in a land with no left or right
I don't think I can take it any more.

Do you know how it feels to be left alone when everyone else moves on?
Do you know how it feels to realise all your connections are gone?
Do you know how it feels to be a stranger where you've always belonged?
I hope you don't know,
I hope you never know.

I hope it's only me who's feeling lost tonight
I hope that I'm the only one dreading acting in daylight
I hope that I'm the only one who's curled up hiding in fright
I don't think I can make it any more.

Do you know how it feels to lose your trust and treat all things with doubt?
Do you know how it feels to open your mouth and hear no sound come out?
Do you know how it feels to seek comfort and find there's none about?
I hope you don't know,
I hope you never know.

I hope it's only me who's feeling trapped tonight.
I hope that I'm the only one who can see no hope in sight
I hope that I'm the only one wrapped in a chain, strong and light
I don't think I can break it any more.

I can't find myself
or any reason to be happy
and I don't think I can fake it any more,
I just hope you never know.
