Alone Again (Naturally) Lyrics By Gilbert O Sullivan

    in a little while from now
    if i’m not feeling any less sour
    i promised myself to treat myself
    and visit a nearby tower

    and climbing to the top
    will throw myself off
    in an effort to make it clear to whoever
    what it’s like when you’re shattered

    left standing in the lurch at a church
    where people saying
    my god that’s tough she stood him up
    no point in us remaining

    we may as well go home
    as i did on my own
    alone again naturally

    to think that only yesterday
    i was cheerful bright and gay
    looking forward to but who wouldn’t do
    the role i was about to play

    but as if to knock me down
    reality came around
    and without so much as a mere touch
    cut me into little pieces

    leaving me to doubt
    all about god and his mercy
    for if he really does exist
    why did he desert me

    in my hour of need
    i truly am indeed
    alone again naturally

    it seems to me that
    there are more hearts
    broken in the world
    that can’t be mended
    left unattended
    what do we do
    what do we do


    alone again naturally

    now looking back over the years
    and what ever else that appears
    i remember i cried when my father died
    never wishing to hide the tears

    and at sixtyfive years old
    my mother god rest her soul
    couldn’t understand why the only man
    she had ever loved had been taken

    leaving her to start with a heart
    so badly broken
    despite encouragement from me
    no words were ever spoken

    and when she passed away
    i cried and cried all day
    alone again naturally
    alone again naturally
