I've been alone even in the company of others
Maybe it will always be so

My heartbeat echoes beyond me
I hear yours as well
Yet mine still beats alone

Alone it speaks
And desperate to share the load of my mind

But I do not wish my burden on anyone
A sacrificial soldier for an army of one

How can it weep asking for relief?
When it cannot see it's making a martyr of me

What can end this lonesome misery?
This situation has become my identity

I can have all the friends in the world
And a family
A partner to be with
ButΒ Β always with this quietness

I’ve been this way since I can remember
It’s the only thing that is still with me
