Alone Again (Naturally)

In a little while from now

If I'm not feeling any less sour

I promise myself to treat myself

And visit a nearby tower

And climbing to the top

Will throw myself off

In an effort to make clear to whomever

What it's like when you're shattered

Left standing in the lurch

At a church where people saying

My God, that's tough, she stood him up

No point in us remaining

We may as well go home

As I did on my own

Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday

I was cheerful, bright and gay

Looking forward to, well, who wouldn't do

The role I was about to play

But as if to knock me down

Reality came around

And without so much as a mere touch

Cut me into little pieces

Leaving me to doubt

Talk about God in His mercy

Who, if He really does exist

Why did He desert me?

And in my hour of need

I truly am, indeed

Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts

Broken in the world that can't be mended

Left unattended

What do we do?

What do we do?

Alone again, naturally

Now, looking back over the years

And whatever else that appears

I remember I cried when my father died

Never wishing to hide the tears

And at sixty-five years old

My mother, God rest her soul

Couldn't understand why the only man

She had ever loved had been taken

Leaving her to start

With a heart so badly broken

Despite encouragement from me

No words were ever spoken

And when she passed away

I cried and cried all day

Alone again, naturally

Alone again, naturally
