Alone Again Naturally

By Gilbert O'Sullivan

Within a little while from now 
Iím 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 it clear to who 
Ever what itís like when youíre shattered 
Left standing in the lurch by the church 
Where people saying: "My God, thatís tough sheís tored him up" 
No point in us remaining 
You may as well go home 
Cause I did on my own 
Alone again, naturally 
To think that only yesterday 
I was cheerful, bright and gay 
Looking forward to wouldnít 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 
About God and His mercy 
Or 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 canít be mended 
Left unattended 
What do we do? What do we do? 
Alone again, naturally 
And looking back over the years 
When everyone stands and fears 
I remember I cried when my father died 
Never wishing to dry the tears 
And at sixty-five years old 
My mother, God rest her soul, 
Couldnít understand why the only man 
She had ever loved had been taken 
Leaving her to stop with the 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
