All alone
it was always there you see
and even on my own
it was always standing next to me

I can see it coming from the edge of the room
creeping in the streetlight
holding my hand in the pale gloom
can you see it coming now

I think I'm breaking down again
I think I'm breaking down

All alone
even when I was a child
I've always known
there was something to be frightened of

and I can see it coming from the edge of the room
creeping in the streetlight
holding my hand in the pale gloom
can you see it coming now

I think I'm breaking down again
I think I'm breaking down

All alone
on the edge of sleep
my old familiar friend
comes and lies down next to me

and I can see it coming from the edge of the room
smiling in the streetlight
even with my eyes shut tight
I still see it coming now
