The Only One

Everyone you know's been through it,
You bite the bullet, then you chew it,
Tie the knot at the end of your rope,
Buy a book to help you cope.
No consolation's gonna come,
You're the only one.
 
Take a look through history,
Recant some bits of poetry,
You'll find the words still ring true,
Some things don't change,
Some things do.
 
And you're the only one with a broken heart,
The only one who's afraid of the dark,
The only one in a crowded room,
The only one who sees the blue moon.
 
What you wouldn't give right now
To be another face in the crowd.
 
And you're the only one who is all alone,
The only one whose love is gone,
The only one who has given in,
The only one who will give again.
 
And you're the only one with a broken heart,
The only one who's afraid of the dark,
The only one in a crowded room,
The only one who sees the blue moon.
 
Thanks!
