Sometimes it feels like I am all alone

Sometimes it feels like I am all alone
With no one to talk to, I sit here on my own
I close me eyes and silently I pray
That the skies above me are no longer grey

Some friend that you turned out to be
No sooner gone, you found someone to replace me
There is nothing more that I want to say
So I will fold my head in my arms and go away

Who do you think you are?
What do you think you know?
It's not me you're seeing when you look at me
But some projection you think you own
Where do you think you're going?
What do you think I have become?
The wax melts between my fingers
As I flew too near the sun

Sometimes it feels like I am all alone
Your words like knives cut into my bones
No story you weave is too grand for my ears
So I swallow my pride, my love, my fears

Some friend you have turned out to be
Put out my eyes now so I cannot see
The smiles once warm are now so cold
The ice of your tongue how it rapes my soul

Why do you do this to me?
Why do I think that you care?
I keep giving myself a raft of chances
That amount to naught but flimsy air
Why do I keep returning?
What seeds do I seek to sow?
Too late to man the lifeboats
When you're trapped in the undertow...

All I do is wait
Hold my breath
It's too late to wonder why
There is nothing left

You hold my heart, crush my dreams
Split me apart at the seams

And yet

I still throw myself at your feet
This ridiculous salvation I seek

Sometimes it feels like I am all alone
Inside a house that isn't really home
But I don't have to be a genius to see
That when he is there you look right through me.
