You Ain't Alone

Album: Hope On The Rocks (2012)
  • I’ve chased all the cracks up and down the ceiling
    Worn a path across these hardwood floors
    I’ve stared at the walls and I’ve looked out the window
    And I prayed for your knock upon my door

    There’s a sad lovers' moon, shining on the evening
    I miss you more than ever and I’m sorry that you’re gone
    I wish things were different
    I had no way of knowing
    If you’re all by yourself tonight
    You ain’t alone, you ain’t alone

    No coffee on the stove
    And on the table in the kitchen
    There’s a busted hand of midnight solitaire
    There’s a ghost in the bedroom
    A nightgown on the dresser
    A broken heart that wishes you were there

    There’s a sad lovers’ moon, shining on the evening
    I miss you more than ever and I’m sorry that you’re gone
    I wish things were different
    I had no way of knowing
    If you’re all by yourself tonight
    You ain’t alone, you ain’t alone

    Tears of sorrow and regret
    Ashtrays full of cigarettes
    Empty bottles lined up just like soldiers
    But by now somebody holds her Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
