  • Once Again

    -- Once Again--
     
    Once again I'm on the same scene
    but in a slightly different place
    once again surround by the same crowd
    but each hold a slightly different face
     
    i could try for the phone
    but there's no one left to call
    or maybe go for a walk
    if only i could get through this wall
     
    all my friends have departed
    but we never said good-bye
    i would tell you it doesn't hurt
    but my soul cant afford another lie
     
    so tell me a joke and ill try my best to laugh
    while society continues to judge and pretend to know me
    when they don't even know the half
