Treasure Island

Noah Body


Alone


Life is dark and lonely,
I feel that I'm the only
One standing here alone
In all the world I atone

The world is so black
And I can't just go back
To when it was blue
And love was so true

All the colors have gone
But it hasn't been long
Since the day was so bright
And the world full of light

It's all black and grays now
And I just don't know how
To bring back the joy
Of life like a toy

There are people I miss
Life is all amiss
Without them here
I just have no cheer

I'm adrift in this world
And I'm all in a twirl
I'm lonely you see
I have no one with me

I see life all out there
As I sit here and stare
It's passing me by
I just don't know why

That I'm destined to be
All alone with just me
In the midst of a crowd
The silence so loud

All around me they are
I don't have to go far
It might as well be miles
I see there's no smiles

Yet I move through life
Never part of the strife
I am always alone
For what to atone?

I've lost most of my friends
And I am reaching the ends
Of all hope for change,
Doomed to wander the range

All alone for my days
never seeing the rays
Of the sun that shines there
Up in the sky somewhere

I'm seeking the sun
Never finding the fun
Of life that abounds
Out in the towns

Doomed to this life I am
Always stuck in a jam
I wish I could end it
I just cannot send it

Back to the place
I felt joy in my face
That place is so gone
And I know it was wrong

But happiness abounded
And I felt so grounded
In the life that surrounds
All the joy that abounds

Where has it gone?
How did it go wrong?
The answer escapes me
No matter where life takes me

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
