Everyone you know's been through it
You bite the bullet, then you chew it
Tie a knot at the end of your rope
Buy a book to help you cope
But no consolation gonna come
You're the only one

Take a look at history
Recant some bits of poetry
You'll find the words still ring true
Some things don't change
Some things do

And you're the only one with a broken heart
the only one who's afraid of the dark
the only one in a crowded room
the only one who sees the blue moon

What you wouldn't give right now
To be another face in the crowd

And you're the only one who is all alone
the only one whose love is gone
the only one who has given in
the only one who will give again

And you're the only one with a broken heart
the only one who's afraid of the dark
the only one in a crowded room
the only one who sees the blue moon
