Alone Again

isa-isang araw lang. alam ko makakaya ko rin ito. darating ang araw na wala nang epekto ang kahit anong makita ko o maisip ko tungkol sa kanya. hirap lang nito, lahat ng bagay yata may tatak ng pangalan niya. mga damit, mga gamit, at kung ano-ano pang nagpapaalala kung ano talaga ang nangyari. yung mahirap tanggapin. mas mahirap niyan, hindi pa pwedeng alisin ang mga bagay na yan dahil wala akong ibang gagamitin. isa-isang araw, isa-isang bagay. mapapalitan o mamamanhid din ako. kung ano man ang mauna. at matututo akong mag-isa. yung tunay na mag-isa. hindi yung tulad ng ginawa niya.

Alone Again, Naturally

In a little while from now
If I’m not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to who
Ever what it’s like when you’re shattered
Left standing in the lurch at a church
Where people saying: "My God, that’s tough
She's stood him up"
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to well wouldn’t do
The role I was about to play
But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much, as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about God and His mercy
Or if He really does exist
Why did He desert me in my hour of need
I truly am indeed Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts
broken in the world that can’t be mended
Left unattended
What do we do? What do we do?

Alone again, naturally
Now looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old
My mother, God rest her soul,
Couldn’t understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me
No words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
I cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally
