Youre On Your Own - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics


The mother and son relationship

Lead vocal: kiki dee

Do you know who i am
Do you know where you are
Are you where you want to be

Do you see what you like
Do you like what you see
Do you think a need in you
Can fulfill a need in me

You're on your own, you're on your own
In a no man's land
In a danger zone
You're on your own, you're on your own
And you cant turn back
And you can't find your way home

Do you know who you are
Do you know what you want
Can you see me as i am

Do you think you're a lion
And i'm a lamb
That you came in here a boy
And you're going out a man

You're on your own, you're on your own
And there's no way out
Of the danger zone
You're on your own, you're on your own
And your only friend
Is a heart of stone

And now you are alone my friend
And i must set you free
And you must face the world outside
And find your destiny

You're on your own, you're on your own
In a no man's land
In a danger zone
You're on your own, you're on your own
And your only friend has a heart of stone

You're on your own, you're on your own
And there's no way out
Of the danger zone
You're on your own, you're on your own
Just a lonely child
And you can't find your way home
