Walking through this life alone

Hanging on to every word

Acting like you just don't care

But inside it hurts

It seemed so innocent, just another voice in the crowd

So why is this one so hard to drown out?

Another day in solitude

But your heart is craving more

You claim to like the peacefulness

But inside, you're not sure

Holding on to principles

Or letting yourself go

Is this really you, or just for show?

You have to keep your head up

Don't get lost into the world

They'll try to bring you down, but you can't let them

Tell you who you are

Show them you won't be broken

You have to stand your ground

Then you can turn your life around

Feeling like a stranger, but everybody knows your name

Sacrificing who you are

To earn your claim to fame

If only it were easier

To simply walk away

But won't it all be worth the price you'll pay?

I know it's easier said than done

But imagine how you'll feel

When your life is finally won

It doesn't matter what they say

You just have to turn

And walk away

Another day of solitude

But your heart is craving more

You're trying hard

To make a change

But you're so far from the door

Feeling almost empty, you can't go on

On your own

But what if you were never all alone?
