This is the first time on my own
this is the first time I've ever been alone like this
the silence covers wall to wall
I never knew how suddenly the night can fall
far away
I can here the city screams
drift away
I could be beside you in my dreams
CHORUS:
In another world
I could walk away
pretend there was nothing
I wouldn't need you anyway
in another world
but not in this world
I have no stronghold to defend
but still my heart is outside, beating at the door again
no promises to make or keep
and though I'm free to go
I end up chasing sleep again
drift away
wonder if you think of me
yesterday, is the place I'm going endlessly
REPEAT CHORUS
and though I realize the truth
is not idealized in you
why should I be surprised to find
that you are always on my mind
REPEAT CHORUS 2X
This is the first time on my own
this is the first time I've ever been alone like this
the silence covers wall to wall
I never knew how suddenly the night can fall
far away
I can here the city screams
drift away
I could be beside you in my dreams
CHORUS:
In another world
I could walk away
pretend their was nothing
I wouldn't need you anyway
in another world
but not in this world
I have no strong hold to defend
but still my heart is outside, beating at the door again
no promise to make or keep
one thought I'm free to go
I end up chasing sleep again
drift away
wonder if you think of me
yesterday, is the place I'm going endlessly
REPEAT CHORUS
and though I realize the truth
is not that I desire in you
why should I be surprised to find
that you are always on my mind
REPEAT CHORUS 2X
This is the first time on my own
this is the first time I ever been alone like this
this is the first time I ever been alone like this
