On My Own

On My Own

At this party of false hopes and dreams,

Where no one is as he seems,

In a crowded room, I stand…

Alone.

Here problems and sorrows are forbidden

Behind a smile they're secretly hidden

In a crowded room, I stand…

Alone.

The music's flowing, clear and bright

Couples are dancing throughout the night

In a crowded room, I stand…

Alone.

The laughter and screams escalate

I turn to doors that give no escape

In a crowded room, I stand…

Alone.

Whispers of secrets pass through lovers' ears

Words are spoken, promises to last for years

In a room of love, I stand…

Alone.

I see the clock's hand begin to wind

Suddenly I'm skipped forward through time

In a shattered room, I stand…

Alone.

Gentlemen weeping in their hands

And women unable to understand

In a shattered room, all's…

Alone.

Promises whispered long before

Become lost in this bitter war

In a shattered room, hearts are…

Alone.

The damaging lies are now complete

People are left crying, unable to speak

In a shattered room, the world's…

Alone.

The clock turns back to present time

I'm jerked to reality by its hollow chime

In a crowded room, I stand…

Alone.

Someone approaches- look in his eyes

They are filled with both his heartache and lies

In a crowded room, I stand…

Alone.

I realize now what it is I see

I know this false world is not for me

In a crowded room, I leave them…

Alone.

I slip back, away from them all

Making my escape down an empty hall

In this crowded room, I walk...

Alone.
