I'm living the dream where I'm screaming,

But none can hear my cry;

My anguish falling on deafened ears,

I feel like I could die.

— —

Alienated from everyone,

Destined to stay alone.

I don't think I'll ever cope

With this ache in my bones.

— —

Tsunamis of loneliness flood me,

Spilling forth from my eyes;

Obliterating my happiness,

Leaving nothing but sighs.

— —

I yearn for the warmth of affection,

A closeness of the heart;

To be on the inside, for a change,

Instead of stuck apart.
