  • I've been thinking 'bout the times
    You walked out on me
    There were moments I'd believe, you were there
    Do I miss you, or am I lying to my self again
    I do these things...
    (It's all because of you)
    I keep holding on, but I'll try
    (try not to think of you)
    Love don't leave me lonely


    I'll be alright without you
    There'll be someone else...I keep tellin' myself
    I'll be alright without you
    Oh...love's an empty face, I can't replace
    (you don't need it)
    People wonderin' why we broke apart
    The great pretender here I go again
    These things I do
    (It's all because of you)
    I'll keep holdin' but I'll try
    (try not to think of you)
    All I wanted was to hold you

    I'll be alright without you
    There'll be someone else, I keep tellin' myself
    I'll be alright without you
    Love's an empty face...Oh I've got to replace

    I'll be alright without you
    There'll be someone else, I keep tellin' myself
    I'll be alright without you
    Oh...love's an empty place, I can still see your face
    I'll be alright Writer/s: John Friga, Neal Schon, Stephen Perry

    Ditto Jamie and I'd include "Too Late" by Journey.
  • Jamie from Huntsville, Alone of JOURNEYS best!!! It wasnt as popular as some of their other songs but it should have been!!
  • Paul from Albany, NyThis is a great song / lyrics, although a little sad. My favorite line, that I tell my wife all the time , " . . . these things I do . . . it's all because of you . . . "
