No one knows how i feel
even in a crowd i feel alone
wounded by the memories of war and disasters
i stand all alone
like a prisoner of war kept in solitude and
i must endure all alone
No one can understand the pain i face as each day
to face this all alone
Rejection , fear , anxiety , plague and torture
me till it destroys all that i know and love
so i end up alone
to face it all by my self
so i stand alone
