Alone in your life

Song Info

There’s nothing going on inside

She breathes but that’s all

Different sides of the river (and)

I’m heading for her waterfall

If she’d even look in my direction

Or hold a part of me

The sky is my protection from the pain when she leaves


I want you to love me, I want you to need me

I want you to take me up to your room

I want you to touch me, I want you to hear me

I want to smile at the things I do

I want you to be here, I want you to smile

I want to be there when you open your eyes

But I feel, alone in your life…

None of the dreams have come true

I thought she’d answer my prayer

We shape each other’s behaviour

But I have to pretend I care

If I even thought she’d be perfect I’d be into her completely

Does it have to be perfect? I just don’t get the feelings!

As the distance grows I end up sleeping alone

And we don’t even argue

It’s nothing physical, the glass never half full

What will this turn into?

A hang-over lyric from the ‘Electrified’ album. That album had a lot of frustration and unfulfilment - whatever the actual word for that is.  This song fits perfectly on that album - if the music wasn’t so bland and soulless.
