Leave Me Alone

Look at the young lovers of today
they have their whole lives ahead of them
Least that’s what I would say
If I didn’t see my lies illuminated
So whenever I believe I have found someone
I have to find a reason to doubt it all
and when they are finally gone
I feel the same despair

I can’t let anyone get too close to me
it’s not what I intend
but it all depends
on the feelings I could never comprehend

Look at the young lovers of yesterday
they had their true happiness to share
But what else can I really say?
I never allowed myself the chance
I guess it’s for the best if you just leave me alone
I’ll chase the dying embers of another faith
in a world where I am almost grown

I can’t let anyone get too close to me
it’s not what I intend
but it all depends
on the feelings I could never comprehend

It’s like my cocoon of convalescence
was designed to bring you harm
Though I never wished for tears
to fall from the eyes that held such charm
What could have been was never meant to be
it’s clear as day as far as I can see

When I was among the young lovers
It was never about me and her
When I listened to the thoughts
that commit only to disorder
It happened so fast, then
soon she was just a stranger

The voices that caused me wrong
had left me too
and I had nothing

It’s the insanity I grieve for
that I almost call a friend

The End
