Another Day Alone

by Nikki Rice

Been a little lonely lately
but mostly just alone
I've seen a million faces
and I've seen a million go
I'm ready for my last word
I'm ready for my turn
Can't move from this position
Can't cross these bridges burned
alone

Been a little lonely lately
but mostly just alone
I've seen inside my mind's eye
Can't blink, I'll miss the show
I'm always under my watch
I'm not above the rest
Won't sneak out the back door
Won't drop six feet west
alone

Been a little lonely lately
but mostly just alone
I might be free to walk
but just want to drive you home
I'm still hoping for a change
I'm waiting for a tip
Don't see my compass anywhere
Don't wanna sink this ship
alone

{Chorus}

If I had a dime
for every day, for every way
they've said goodbye
I'd use that dime
to buy some time
another day, another way
another chance to make them stay
But I'm not lonely anyway
No, I'm not lonely anyway
I'm just alone
