Estranged
 
     When you're talkin to yourself
     And nobody's home
     You can fool yourself
     You came in this world alone
     (Alone)

     So nobody ever told you baby
     How it was gonna be
     So what'll happen to you baby
     Guess we'll have to wait and see
     ONE, TWO

     Old at heart but I'm only 28
     And I'm much too young
     To let love break my heart
     Young at heart but it's getting much too late
     To find ourselves so far apart

     I don't know how you're s'posed
     To find me lately
     An what more could tou ask from me
     How could you say that I never needed you
     When you took everything
     Said you took everything from me

     Young at heart an it gets so hard to wait
     When no one  I know can seem to help me now
     Old at heart but I musn't hesitate
     If I'm to find my own way out

     Still talkin' to myself
     and nobody's home
     (Alone)

     So nobody ever told us baby
     How it was gonna be
     So what'll happen to us baby
     Guess we'll have to wait and see

     When I find out all the reasons
     Maybe I'll find another way
     Find another day
     With all the changing seasons of my life
     Maybe I'll get it right next time
     An now that you've been broken down
     Got your head out of the clouds
     You're back down on the ground
     And you don't talk so loud
     An you don't walk so proud
     Any more, and what for

     Well I jumped into the river
     Too many times to make it home
     I'm out here on my own, an drifting all alone
     If it doesn't show give it time
     To read between the lines
     'Cause I see the storm getting closer
     And the waves they get so high
     Seems everything We've ever known's here
     Why must it drift away and die

     I'll never find anyone to replace you
     Guess I'll have to make it thru, this time- Oh this time
     Without you

     I knew the storm was getting closer
     And all my friends said I was high
     But everything we've ever known's here
     I never wanted it to die
