About the song
I came up with the opening line and the rest just followed its lead: 'I'm all alone like a milk bottle on a step...' I think I had some Sting songs on the turntable around the time I wrote this...
Lyrics
Verse 1
I'm all alone like a milk bottle on a step,
Feeling empty and a long cold night ahead.
I'm on my own like a beacon in the sea,
Shining brightly, but no-one will come near me.

Chorus
I can't be the only one,
Though there's no-one on my horizon.
I guess I must resign myself
To being lonely on the shelf.

Verse 2
On my own like the moon up in the sky,
Folks dropped in once, but these days no-one passes by.
Still alone, an oasis is the sand;
Quite inviting, but no-one ventures through this land.

Chorus
No I can't be the only one,
Though there's no-one on my horizon.
I guess I must resign myself
To being lonely on the shelf.

Verse 3
I'm all at sea, a person in a crowd;
No-one hears me, although my voice is very loud.

Chorus
No I can't be the only one,
Though there's no-one on my horizon.
I guess I must resign myself
To being lonely on the shelf.
