Alone

Wide awake and he shakes in a panic.
Never woke up alone ever before.
Had his woman long as he can remember.
Tries to forget, but he can’t, he can’t…
Out of bed and he dreams in the shower.
She’s standing naked and apologizing.
Reaches for her `till his mind becomes blood hot,
Woken up to be burned…burned again.

Go it alone…you got it, so it goes.
I wanna breathe, and I said I can’t take it any other way.

On the streets he’s walkin’ wounded…
Doesn’t smile for the child at play.
Thoughts of suicide and alleviation…
Anything to get his heart off of the coals.
Does he fly away or just talk about it,
Like a seagull born to cry in the wind?
All experiences lead to a young girl.
Alone you will meet the one who lies in wait.

Go it alone…you got it, so it goes.
Try to breathe, but you can’t. You can’t take it any other way.

I can help myself, don’t talk to me…

Wide awake and he shakes in a panic.
Never woke up alone ever before.
Had his woman long as he can remember.
Tries to forget, but he can’t…
He can’t, he can’t, he can’t…
