Once I told you without feeling
When you came to me in sorrow
There's a truth that life's revealing
We all have to be alone

You only wanted someone to hold you
Tell you she'd be there tomorrow
But instead I only told you
We all have to be alone

Then I was amazed to see
How quickly you agreed with me
If that's the way it has to be
There's nothing left to say
No reason left to stay
Besides I've got a lot of better things to do today

So my world grew so much colder
With little love to lend or borrow
And I found out as I grew older
We all have to be alone
