Ronnie Dyson – One Man Band (Plays All Alone) lyrics

All my life I've been alone
But I've never really cared
Just a face inside a crowd
A stranger everywhere

Everyone I've ever known
Has disappointed me
I live and breathe only for me

No one's ever been inside
The wall surrounding me
I depend on me myself
To keep me company

No one cares about me
So I take good care of me
I'm in a world all of my own

Oh, a one man band plays all alone
He plays to a song of his own
Yes, he does, yes, he does
Yes, he does
Oh, a one man band plays all alone
He plays to a song of his own

I'm so self contented
That it sometimes frightens me
I can do most anything
With no one helping me

I'm concerned in everything
That's for the good of me
No one but me cares about me

And each man is the
Master of his own destiny
And I can surely best determine
What is right for me

If I had the chance
To change my life
I wouldn't dare
Doing okay living this way

[Chorus:] 3X to fade
