This time, I was alone.
I was walking, through the world.
This time, I saw the world grow around me.
I saw life bloom and decay.
I saw the stars shine, then grow dim.
This time I walked under the sky,
Under the open, dark night sky.
And I looked life in the eyes,
Defied and called out its lies.
This time, I walked alone.
Through the whole world, all alone.
And I watched life go by,
I watched it change, I watched it shine.
This time, no one was by me.
This time, nobody came to me.
And this time, I longed to have you here.
But this time, this time you just couldn’t be here.
