grasping for straws like a tin can
with a string that's not attached to another end
climbed the ladder up to the top and then
felt my heart sink to the bottom again

my love is like a landslide, collapsing in
I give and give until there's nothing left
if I write it in a song can I make it bend?
my loneliness fades while I play pretend

I used to be alone so I'm used to being alone

it doesn't make it easier or hurt less
but at least I know what to expect
each moment's passing becomes meaningless
the feeling that I never could forget

but I used to be alone so I'm used to being alone
