2 A.M.

Album: The X Factor (1995)
  • I get in from work at 2 AM
    And sit down with a beer
    Turn on the late night TV
    And then I wonder why I'm here
    It's meaningless and trivial
    And it washes over me
    And once again I wonder
    Is this all there is for me

    Here I am again
    Look at me again
    Here I am again
    On my own
    Trying hard to see
    What there is for me
    Here I am again
    On my own

    Life seems so pathetic
    I wish I could leave it all behind
    This canvas chair, this bed
    These walls that fall in on my mind
    Hold on for something better
    That just drags you through the dirt
    Do you just let go or carry on
    And try to take the hurt

    Here I am again
    Look at me again
    Here I am again
    On my own
    Trying hard to see
    What there is for me
    Here I am again
    On my own

    Oh
    Here I am again
    Look at me again
    Here I am again
    On my own
    Trying hard to see
    What there is for me
    Here I am again
    On my own

    Here I am again
    Look at me again
    Here I am again
    On my own
    Trying hard to see
    What there is for me
    Here I am again
    On my own

    Alone again
    Alone again
    I'm here on my own Writer/s: Bayley Cooke, Janick Gers, Stephen Percy Harris

  • Richard Harris from Bc CanadaQuite depressing song, not too motivational, this song represents the true mood of this album, almost opposite of Maiden's other works.
  • Dave from Melbourne, AustraliaAwesone song. You can feel the anger and depression quite deeply throughout when you hear it. It's about a guy who has simply had enough of his life and feels worthless.
  • Quentin from Faribault, MnI give this a 4 out of 5, due to the 18-25yrs directional age group intended for. I wanted to give it a FIVE, and certainly will pass it on to my brother, but... We have to contend with the idea of an all time top 100 hundred. Close, but just outside. Keep rock'in.
