There were colorful lights and people singing
Santa’s in windows
And popcorn stringing
I spent Christmas alone.
News years came and bells were ringing
Promises made and children singing
Skyrockets flashing across the sky
Helping to hide the tears in my eye
I spent New Year’s alone.
My birthday rolled in
As it does every year
Some seem to notice
But most didn’t care
I spent my birthday alone.
We come in and go out of this world on our own
I’ve had plenty of practice at being alone
But still at night as the north wind moans
It scares me to think
With my eyes final wink
I’ll still be alone.
