[Considering] the same old you
Head on fast, but it came on easy
Now I won't be gone for long, at least I'm going [home]
[I'm here for you], now you know what you lost
Now you are the thieves that you pardoned
Search for need, it'll never come
Now you have fallen
There's more for their own now
Sometimes I need a focus, I need a reason
So, so long

Stray dog
You're only
Joker no, joker no more

Oh to each their own
When you can call on your mind
It's a crime to hold back the tears sometime
And, wasted wasted, all before
You forget what you came here for
And, you need to see the signs
And, you need to stop wasting time
And, start to save that stolen
Story that you heard before.
And I waited for you, but you're long gone

Stray dog
You're only, only a stray,
Joker no, joker no more
Yeah, stray dog

    i know that sometimes the more people around you the more you feel alone but i don't think robert should feel alone because he's not. there's so many others who think the exact same way. i'm sure there's people who are beside him every step of the way. and if there isn't there's many who will stand beside him. that makes me want to cry to think that he thinks that way.

    I think that robert pattison is trying to tell us through his lyrics that he feels alone and that he wants us to stop and just feel what he feels trough his lyrics...oh yeah and im his fan in one in a million

    Just a heads up>>>The line "It's a crime to hold back the tears sometime" should actually read "Just cry to hold back the tears sometime".
    Rob said this himself in an interview, when he was asked where he got the idea for this song from
    :)
