Like a bird that's lost his mate in flight,
I'm alone and oh, so blue tonight;
Like a piece of driftwood on the sea,
May you never be alone like me.

I gave up my friends, I left my home,
When you promised you'd be mine alone;
Now you're gone, our love could never be,
May you never be alone like me.

I believed the lies you told to me,
When you whispered, "Dear, I worship thee!"
Here I am alone and so blue,
All because I loved no one but you.

In the bible, God's own words do say,
For every wrong, dear,
some day you'll have to pay;
I pray the Lord now to set me free,
May you never be alone like me.
May you never be alone like me.
