At this silent dawn, I am alone.
Yesterday has changed my life’s path.
In but a few moments it all fell.
I don’t know why I was chosen to lose.

As the sun goes down, I cry alone.
I haven’t been here before today.
I am lost and cannot sleep in peace.
I talk slowly, but no one hears my sobs.

As I talk to the walls, I hear them laughing at me.
As I look to the sky, it hides the stars.
Wherever I turn, my pride is lost.
How I can return is a mystery.

The light in my heart has failed me.
Night will come soon so I will sleep alone.
What comes next doesn’t matter to me.
I can run, but I have nowhere to go.
