Alone lyrics

I was a midnight rider on a cloud of smoke,
I could make a woman hang on every single stroke,
I was an iron man,
I had a master plan,
but I was alone.

I could hear you breathing with a sigh of the wind,
I remember how your body started trembling.
Oh, what a night it's been
and for the state I'm in
I'm still alone.

And all the wonders made for the Earth,
and all the hearts in all creation,
somehow I always end up alone (always end up alone),
always end up alone.

So I play (sha la),
I'll wait (I'll wait)
'cause you know that love takes time (even love between you and I).
We came (sha la) so far (so far),
just the beat of a lonely heart.
And it's mine,
I don't want to be alone.

Well, since I got no message on the answer phone,
and since you're busy every minute, I just stay at home.
I make believe you care,
I feel you everywhere,
but I'm still alone.

I'm on a wheel of fortune with a twist of fate
'cause I know it isn't heaven, is it love or hate.
Am I the subject of the pain.
Am I the stranger in the rain.
I am alone.

And is there glory there to behold,
maybe it's my imagination.
Another story there to be told (oh).

So I play (sha la), I'll wait (your time),
and I pray it's not too late (it isn't too late).
You know we came (sha la) so far (so far),
just the beat of a lonely heart,
and it's mine,
and I don't want to be alone.


Gone, but not out of sight.
I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home
(and I don't wanna be alone).
Face the heat of the night,
the one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone
(and I don't wanna be alone).

Shine and search for the light
and sooner or later you'll be cruising on your ocean
(and I don't want to be alone).
Shine and clean out of sight
I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home
(and I don't want to be alone).
