Stay Alone

 Now she didn't get off to a very good start
 And she tangled with love
 And he broke her heart
 In a crumbling home had shown the childhood dreams were never real
 I can along, she was seventeen
 With the sun in her eyes and you know what I mean
 She grew up too soon in the shade of my love
 She taught me how to feel
 Loving each other was never enough
 She was watching me grow and she wrote it up
 In a book of life she gave to me the day the white ship sailed
 Farewell my darling, au revoir
 I will pray every day for you
 And she would stay alone while I'm away
 She wouldn't walk all alone in the city without me
 She would stay alone
 She wouldn't play in the dark
 With this love inside my heart
 I came home on a summer night
 And the wind in her hair and she looked just right
 There was never another kind of women could see right through my soul
 Suddenly after the southern rain
 She rode out of my life on the midnight train
 And I fell to the ground And the world became the last place I should be
 Wandering I will wait for you
 For the sound of your voice
 The dreams that you make
 The book of life you gave to me still keeps my flame alive
 Nobody knows which way I'm going
 But I only search for you
 So won't you stay alone
 While I'm away
 If we both walk in the same direction maybe my eyes will see you one day
 Stay alone
 And may your dreams come to be
 All your love inside of me
 Stay alone
