Album
Name of Song: Lonely

Looking out across the sea,
A haunting memory.
Feel like I’m repeating a life,
Can’t grasp from where it comes.

Chorus
Where do I go.
What will I do.
Who will I be with.
Will I end up alone.
______

My mind is injecting pictures,
Somehow feeling an earlier pain,
Deathly feelings enveloping all around,
Suddenly don’t remember where I actually am.

Chorus
Where do I go.
What will I do.
Who will I be with.
Will I end up alone.
______

Casting these feelings out there,
At least trying to separate myself out,
A change of environment softens the load,
What a life that I could be so effect.

Chorus
Where do I go.
What will I do.
Who will I be with.
Will I end up alone.
______

Who should I decide to connect up with,
My code of trust makes me careful with every move,
Will I need to wait until the right one comes along,
Being alone is sometimes painfully too much to bare.

Chorus
Where do I go.
What will I do.
Who will I be with.
Will I end up alone.
______

Constant doubt about loving another,
Should I love myself before I love them first,
Should I just give myself to one, and hope it’ll all work out,
Somehow I know I’ve done this searching so many times before.

Chorus
Where do I go.
What will I do.
Who will I be with.
Will I end up alone.
______

When alone I get glimpses of my own being,
Hard to grasp as no agreement to dwell on self,
But deep deep down I start to wonder if I shouldn’t dwell,
Seems the only problem that keeps returning, is don’t know myself.

Chorus
Where do I go.
What will I do.
Who will I be with.
Will I end up alone.
______

It really takes some guts to decide to know yourself,
I happen to know it’s one of the hardest tasks to ever do,
So many tell you to just find that special person to love you so,
And all your problems will magically melt away in this love.

The only permanent thing in life is your persistence,
And your willingness to make each day a better place,
I think if you can do this drill no matter what’s going on,
Then others will want to love you or be your friend.
