Somewhere Alone - Co-write

Co-write by Sandra Stefanowich and Carolyn Devonshire

Walking as the last rays of light wash over me blades of grass fall from my hand into the wind trying but I can't remember when I had went away aware of the sands of time that shift beneath my feet how long had I felt this way, did I give up too easily was the hurt I had felt, had it been too much for me too afraid to try again and break free of these walls how do you live when you feel like you can't breathe how do you say all that you've kept locked away how do you cry when there's no one there to see how do you go on when you're somewhere alone Sometimes it's 3 a.m. before I lay down to rest today, it was 3 p.m. when I finally got out of bed if phantoms of the night wake me in the early hours I eye the empty pillow beside me with deep scorn it's then I think of all the men who loved and left in the quicksand of time, I'm struggling for air my last gasp effort leaves me wondering why I tried where is the one who was to walk through life with me where is the family I always expected to have where are the friends who married and moved away where is the joy that has left me lost and alone

    Gloomy Sunday to be sure. Nostalgia is not always golden, sometimes it's obsidian. Real drama here. Love, daver
