No matter how many people surround me Deep down, I still stay alone A dozen close friends could sit in the room But still, I'd be left alone. A clown on the street blows balloons in my face & I scream, "Leave me alone!" A kid in a store kicks a ball at my feet I kick back mad all alone. A lover begs entry into my heart & I say, "Leave me alone." A lost friend returns with old times in his arms just to find I'm best left alone. No one is there to catch me when I drop. I'm getting ready to need no one And I can't stop.
