In the morning I awoke
Fresh dawn to greet a solitary bed
A lone man rises to start the day
All I asked was not to be alone

In the hills I looked for her
Amidst the highs of success
I found myself abandoned in my fortune
All I asked was not to be alone

In the ocean I looked for her
Drowning in the sea of failure
I found myself isolated in depths of despair
All I asked was not to be alone

In the desert I looked for her
Toiling away in the sun to find a reward
I found myself deserted in my efforts
All I asked was not to be alone

In the forest I looked for her
Making efforts to rejoin the rest of nature
And in the center of life, found my self ostracized
All I asked was not to be alone

In the dusk I lay
Black sky mirroring a black soul
A lone man retires to his bed once again
All I asked was not to be alone

In the next day she found me
After the search was complete
The miles traveled had been in vain
Now all I ask is to be alone
