Lyrics


Alone

I was there when you needed me most

I was there when you wanted me least

I was your father, your son and your Holy Ghost and priest


Through your failures and success

Through your losses and gains

I didn't see much happiness or pain


I couldn't save your soul

I couldn't even take you home

I couldn't fill that hole

Alone


I saw you at your best

I knew you at your worst

I couldn't tell if you were blessed or cursed


There's a thin grey line

Between the black and the white

It's evidently hard to find at night


I couldn't save your soul

I couldn't even take you home

I couldn't play that role

Alone


Now it's too

Too late for

Words that should have been said

Long ago


I was there when you needed me most

I was there when you wanted me least

I was your father, your son and your Holy Ghost and priest


I couldn't save your soul

I couldn't even take you home

I couldn't fill that hole

Alone
