Alone Again, Naturally - Pet Shop Boys/Elton John (艾爾頓·約翰)

Written by:Gilbert O'Sullivan

Oh 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 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 that's tough

She's stood him up

No point in us remaining

We may as well go home


As I did on my own

Alone again naturally


To think that only yesterday


I was cheerful

Bright and gay


Looking forward to

Well who wouldn't do

The role I was about to play


But as if to knock me 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 naturally


It seems to me that there are more hearts

Broken in the world that can't be mended


Left unattended

What do we do


What do we do


Alone again naturally


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

And when she passed away


I cried and cried all day

Alone again naturally


Alone again naturally
