Life as an Introvert

Also, if you're familiar with Enneagram of Personality, this song goes out to all my fellow 4's out there. Am I poking fun at myself? Yes.

Gilbert O'sullivan - Alone again by mozart-luc

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 in 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
