I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone

By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do... I walk alone I walk alone
I don't believe that anybody
Feels the way I do... I walk alone I walk alone about you now

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone'

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah (in the background all the way to I'm walking down the line)

Every day I wake up and it's Sunday
Whatever's in my head won't go away
The radio is playing all the usual
And what's a wonderwall anyway

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone
Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you

Read between the lines
What's f****d up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you... I walk alone I walk alone
By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do... I walk alone I walk alone

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don't know how

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams

Today is gonna be the day
That they're gonna throw it back to you

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams

By now you should've somehow
Realized what you gotta do

Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a...

Cuz maybe

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me... Saves me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating... Saves me
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me... Saves me
'Til then I walk alone'

Sing with me (Sing!)
Sing for the year (Sing It)
Sing for the laughter sing for the tear (C'mon!)
Sing it with me Just for today
Maybe tomorrow
The good Lord will take you away...
