Alone In The World

from by Ian James Music



anti-socials, outcasts, wall flowers, loners, nerds, geeks, if this was you in your youth its about how you felt. Hopefully you'll be the swan in your adult life, and not let the past hold you back.


you don't know what you're talking about
but that don't keep you from running your mouth
you just keep going on and on
as if nobody has ever heard your song
but people get tired of hearing you cry like
a rain cloud blocking the sun
why don't you try to find a smile
I'm willing to bet you've never had one
Poor little girl all alone in the word
and your stare is so far away
you don't make a sound and there is no one around
and this is how spend every day
you just sit in a room
swallowing doom
while the cool kids run off and play
but later in life when you come back to this town
you know you're gonna blow em all away.
Th kids in school used to be so cruel
they would call you all kinds of names
and when it came time to get in a line
you just stood alone in pain
the days couldn't end fast enough
and when the bell rang you would escape
to hide between pages of anothers life
yeah you were dreaming of fortune and fame.
