All By Yourself

Rewrite of Eric Carmen's classic All By Myself

When you were young
So young and foolish
You were all I told myself I ever needed or wanted
To make me whole
And making love to you was oh so much fun
Those days are gone

Livin' now all alone
I think of all the mistakes
All the times you broke my heart in two
Then I dial the telephone
To tell you
One last time
No, lover never again will I be coming home to you

All by yourself
Just gonna have to learn how to be
All by yourself
Forever more

All by yourself
Cos I don't wanna live with you anymore
All by yourself
Baby now forever more

Not that hard to do this
Cos I'm sure
Don't wanna feel so insecure anymore
So insecure because of you
Making my feelings of love go away
Gettin' more and more
Distant and obscure
Now I no longer can go on
Without a cure
A cure for the heart that you so carelessly shattered beyond repair

All by yourself
Just gonna have to learn how to be
All by yourself
Forever more

When we were young
So young, foolish, and in love
You were all I told myself I ever needed or wanted
And makin' love to you was so much fun
Those days are gone

All by yourself, boy
Just gonna have to live
All by yourself
Forever more

Now that I've walked
Walked out that door
For the last
The very last time
