(I AM) ALL BY MYSELF

about

I told God once that I felt alone. He quickly asked me "who told you that you were alone" this is the dialogue that came of that question about life, love, and loneliness.

lyrics

out of 365 this one ranks up as the worst day/contempt for valentines goes back to like the 3rd grade/just like it was yesterday all the cards and candy/my gift bag should have been a nub it never came in handy/only valentines I got were marked "extra" "left over"/kids called me hebrew 'cuz the way I got passed over/now I'm the biggest looser chocolates escapin' my grasp/and I can't seem to bum a piece from anyone in my class/but when I was a teenager everything changed/cept' for February 14th that seemed to stay the same/went from "do you like me yes or no" to "do you wanna steady go" candygrams to roses but for me I'm still left alone/that was ten years ago I'm still the same dude/'cept for confidence grown and a different attitude/but it's hard when you're 26 and you on your own/constantly reminded you ain't got no one to call your own/let's not talk about Facebook/I can't discuss the madness/seems like 3 more couples marry every time I check my status/so and so likes whats her face they're now in a relationship/so and so proposing is now what's her face's profile pic/and it's complicated part of me is glad/but the biggest part of me is just the slightest bit mad, 'cuz I've been single so long nicknamed the odd man out/and on Feburary 14th I'm really standin' out/you think it helps to know right now you've got me single for a reason while Mrs. right's with john denver on a jet plane leavin/help me out on valentines help my heart stand still/'cuz I can't be in my 40's know as the black Steve Carell

I WAS WITH YOU BACK THEN WHEN YOU AIN'T HAVE ALOT OF YEARS/I SAW YOU LEFT OUT AND OVERLOOKED I SAVED ALL OF THE TEARS/BET I KNOW REJECTION/NO PAIN EQUAL/EXCEPT FOR BEIN' OVERLOOKED BY YOUR OWN PEOPLE/IT HURTS WHEN YOU STADIN THERE YOU GOT SO MUCH TO OFFER/BUT YOU DON'T LOOK THE PART/SO THEY DON'T EVEN BOTHER/KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE ALONE/I KNOW ABOUT LONELY/WHEN MY MOMS WAS OUT OF REACH MY POPS TURNED HIS BACK ON ME/THIS SONGS ABOUT LOVE AND NO ONE KNOWS ANY BETTER/SO LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I DID SO WE COULD BE TOGETHER/I TOOK 37 SCRATCHES FROM A CAT WITH NINE TAILS/30 PEOPLE LIED ON ME EACH TELLIN 9 TALES/I AIN'T SAY NOTHIN' BACK/ALL I SAID WAS I AM/THAT WAS ALL THEY NEEDED NOW THEY ON SOME KILL THIS MAN/THEY BEAT ME LIKE A CRIMINAL/BEAT ME WORSE THAN RODNEY/BUT YOU WERE IN MY HEART SO ALL THE BEATINGS COULD'NT STOP ME/THEY TOOK ME DOWN AND LAID ME UP PUT ME IN A GRAVE/BUT I WASN'T QUITE FINISHED SO I ROLLED THE STONE AWAY/DIDN'T WANNA DO IT BUT IT WAS THE ONLY WAY/THAT WE COULD KNOW EACH OTHER AND YOU AIN'T HAVE TO STAY AWAY/KNOW WHAT YOU SEEIN' ON FACEBOOK REMEMBER MY MATHMATICS/HALF PERSON PLUS HALF PERSON EQUALS A WHOLE LIFE OF HALFNESS/AND IT'S THE GREATEST WACKNESS THE WHOLE TRYIN' TO BE COMPLETE/THEY TRY TO GIVE OUT LOVE BUT NEVER ACCEPTED LOVE FROM ME/SO THE LOVE THEY GIVIN' OUT IS NOT REAL COUNTERFEIT/ICEBERG IN THE OCEAN SINKIN THEIR RELATIONSHIP/TRUSTIN' IN ME KNOW I'LL NEVER TAKE YOU THAT ROUTE/YOU ALONE RIGHT NOW BUT YOU'LL BE SOLID IN AND OUT/COMPLETE IN MY LOVE IN MY LOVE MADE WHOLE/SO YOU'LL CONNECT WITH MRS. RIGHT BODY SPIRIT AND SOUL/SPEAKIN' OF MRS. RIGHT SHE'S WITH ME SAFE AND SOUND/YOU'RE TOO YOUNG TO REMEMBER JOHN'S PLANE WENT DOWN/I'M CURRENTLY DOIN' WORK COMPLETING HER TOO/PROCESS LOOKS LIKE WHAT I'VE STARTED IN YOU/KNOW IT FEELS LIKE FOREVER LIKE RESCUE TO A HOSTAGE/BUT I'M ALWAYS ON TIME WE JUST GOT SOME DIFFERENT WATCHES/REMEMBER WHEN YOU'RE LOOSIN HOPE AND YOU WANNA TURN BACK/IM WITH YOU WHEN YOU'RE BY YOURSELF LIKE THE NAME OF THE TRACK
