Alone Again Lyrics Shirley Bassey

In a little while from now

If I'm not feeling
any less sour
I promise myself

To treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top

Will throw myself right off
In an effort to

Make it clear to whoever
What it's like when
you're shattered
Left standing in the lurch

At a church
Where people saying
"My God it's tough

She's stood him up
No point in us remaining
We might as well go home"

As I did on my own
Alone again

To think that only yesterday

I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to

Who wouldn't do
The role I was about to play
As if to knock my down

Reality came around
And without so much

As a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about

God in his mercy
Who if he really does exist

Why did he desert me?
In my hour of need

I truly am indeed
Alone again

It seems to me that
there are more

Broken in the world
That can't be mended

Left unattended
What do we do?

What do we do?
Now looking back
over the years

And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried

When my father died
Never wishing to
hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother

God rest her soul
Couldn't understand

Why The only man
She had ever loved

Had been taken
Leaving her to start

With a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me

No words were ever spoken
When she passed away

I cried and cried all day
Alone again

Alone again
