When you were alive, I was never alone Somewhere in the world, there was something called home And as long as you lived, I would be allright There were reasons to win, and incentives to fight Now I'm smoking again. I thought all that was through And I don't wanna live. But what else can I do
And I feel like I've faked all that I ever did And I've grown a gray beard, but I cry like a kid I was seven when I sang you'd rosin the bow There in Aunt Mary's kitchen and I don't guess I know That it's why I've done this for all of this time But now I'm playing and singing, seems a game or a crime People have called to find out if I'm fine
I assure them I am. But I'm not - it's a lie They say in the end, your good friends pull you through But everyone knows, my best friend was you.
Hey, I've gotten some help. I guess I was afraid You suppose something will happen when someone is paid But I am getting better once again I'll be strong After all, listen, I'm singing this song
When you were alive I was never alone Somewhere in the world there was something called home
Now I feel like I'm homeless but I will be alright I'll get through the days. I'll face-down the night.
