When you were young
And on
Your own,
How did it feel
To be
Alone?
I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing,
Trying to make the best of my time.

But only love
Can break
Your heart;
Try to be sure
Right from
The start.
Yes, only love
Can break
Your heart,
But if your world
Should fall
Apart...

I have a friend
I’ve nev- -er seen
He hides his head
Inside
A dream
Someone should call him
And see if he can come out,
Try to lose the gang that he’s found.

But only love
Can break
Your heart;
Try to be sure
Right from
The start.
Yes, only love
Can break
Your heart,
But if your world
Should fall
Apart...

I was always thinking,
I was always thinking.
I was always thinking,
I was always thinking.
I was always thinking,
I was always thinking.
I was always thinking.

I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing.
I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing.
I was always thinking,
I was always thinking.
I was always thinking,
I was always thinking.
I - / I - / I - / I - /
I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing.
I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing.
I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing.
I was always thinking,
Games that I was playing.
