Am I the only one?

There is no good reason I should have to be so alone. I'm
smothered by this emptiness Lord I wish I was made of
stone. Like a fool I lent my soul to love and it paid me
back in change. God help me am I the only one who's ever
felt this way. A heart that's worn and weathered should
know better than to fight. But I wore mine like a weapon
played out love like a crime. And it wrung me out and
strung me out and it hung years on my face. God help me am
I the only one who's ever felt this way. Now my sense of
humor needs a break. I see a shadow in the mirror and she's
laughing through her tears. One more smile's all I can
fake. There is a wound inside me and it's bleeding like a
flood there are times when I see light ahead hope is not
enough. And as another night surrounds me and it pounds me
like a wave. God help me am I the only one who's ever felt
this way. God help me am I the only one who's ever felt
this way.
