The darkness rolls in once more
But there’s no one coming home
To knock at my door.
The happiness and love long gone
All that’s left is an empty blackness;
Refrain from reach out –
Stay strong and resist.
Days and nights smashed into one
No one to turn to, nowhere I can run.
Surrounded by eternal loneliness
Knowing I’m finished; knowing I’m done.
How did it turn out like this?
What were the signs that I missed?
Try to understand as I sit here alone
Wishing that things could be undone.
No way to return to the past
Covered in the rubble of the bomb blast.
Drag myself to my feet
I stagger forward – step by step.
One day in my future I will meet
The one that holds the rest
The one that puts me to the test
The one that brings out my best.
One day, the loneliness will be gone
Forget all the pain, chains on my heart torn
But until that day comes
Loneliness will reign number one.
