Alone

 I was a midnight rider on a cloud of smoke
 I could make a woman hang on every single stroke
 I was an iron man
 I had a master plan
 But I was alone
 I could hear you breathing
 With a sigh of the wind
 I remember how your body started trembling
 Oh, what's a night it's been
 And for the state I'm in
 I'm still alone
 And all the wonders made for the Earth
 And all the hearts in all creation
 Somehow I always end up alone
 Always end up alone
 So I play, I'll wait
 'Cause you know that love takes time
 We came so far
 Just the beat of a lonely heart
 And it's mine
 I don't want to be alone
 Well, since I got no message on your answer phone
 And since you're busy every minute.
 I just stay at home
 I make believe you care
 I feel you everywhere
 But I'm still alone
 I'm on a wheel of fortune with a twist of fate
 'Cause I know it isn't heaven, is it love or hate
 Am I the subject of the pain
 An I the stranger in the rain
 I am alone
 And if there glory there to behold
 Maybe it's my imagination
 Another story there to be told
 So I play, I'll wait
 And I pray it's not too late
 We came so far
 Just a beat of a lonely heart
 And it's mine
 I don't want to be alone
 And all the wonders made for the Earth
 And all the hearts in all creation
 Another story there to be told
 So I play, I'll wait
 And I pray it's not too late
 We came so far
 Just a beat of a lonely heart
 And it's mine
 I don't want to be alone
 Gone, but not out of sight
 I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home
 Face the heat of the night
 The one that you love's got a heart that's made of stone
 Shine and search for the light
 And sooner or later you'll be cruising on your ocean
 And clean out of sight
 I'm caught in the rain and there's no one home
