Alone*


Shakin' sugar from a sugar spoon
Peppermint tea, afternoon
Alone, alone, alone

Takin' a shower
Take another nap
Watching television
Takin' a bath
Alone, alone, alone

I feel like a book but I just can't start it
I feel like a lover, brokenhearted
I look in the mirror at the face in the glass
I look like a question no one ever asked

Alone
Like I'm supposed to be
Alone, lonely, alone
Like I'm supposed to be

I could go for a walk
I could go for a drive
Listen to the stereo
Staying inside
Alone, alone, alone

I feel like a book but I just can't start it
I feel like a lover, broken-hearted
I look in the mirror at the face in the glass
I look like a question no one ever asked

Alone
Like I'm supposed to be
Alone, lonely, alone
Like I'm supposed to be

Shakin' sugar from a table spoon
Bitter black coffee, beneath the moon
Alone, alone, alone

I feel like a book with a big ghost part (?)
I didn't finish, I didn't start it
I look in the mirror at the face in the glass
I look like a question no one ever asked

Alone
Like I'm supposed to be
Alone, lonely, alone
Like I'm supposed to be
