alone

Listen below.

Holding back the sadness
Fighting back the pain
Dealing with the feeling
That you're leaving me again

Been so long together
I let you come too close
Now a nip of you won't satisfy
And I need to up the dose

It's not that I can't handle it
It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I don't want to be
Alone (on my own)

How this always happens
Happy for a while
Flying with the flock and soaring
Round the town in style

Hanging with the lookers
Laughing night and day
Then something always snaps inside
And I begin to stray

It's not that I can't handle it
It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I don't want to be
Alone (on my own)

Back to life with only me
Staring at the ceiling
Lonely nights imagining
Life without this feeling

I held back the sadness
I fought back the pain
I dealt with the feeling
And you left me again

It's not that I can't handle it
It's not that I'm not strong
It's just that I'm not scared to be
Alone (on my own)

It's not that I can't handle it
It's not that I'm not strong
And now I feel just fine to be
Alone (on my own)
