"Estranged", by Guns'n'Roses

When you're talkin' to yourself and nobody's home,
You can fool yourself,
You came in this world alone...
(Alone...)

So nobody ever told you, baby,
How it was gonna be.
So what'll happen to you, baby?
Guess we'll have to wait and see...
One, two...

Old at heart, but I'm only 28,
And I'm much too young to let love break my heart.
Young at heart, but it's getting much too late
To find ourselves so far apart.

I don't know how you're s'posed to find me lately
And what more could you ask from me?
How could you say that I never needed you
When you took everything,
Said you took everything from me?

Young at heart, and it gets so hard to wait
When no one I know can seem to help me now.
Old at heart, but I musn't hesitate
If I'm to find my own way out.

Still talkin' to myself, and nobody's home...
(Alone...)

So nobody ever told us, baby, how it was gonna be.
So what'll happen to us, baby?
Guess we'll have to wait and see.

When I find all of the reasons,
Maybe I'll find another way,
Find another day,
With all the changing seasons of my life.
Maybe I'll get it right next time.
And now that you've been broken down,
Got your head out of the clouds,
You're back down on the ground,
And you don't talk so loud, and you don't walk so proud
Anymore, and what for?

Well I jumped into the river too many times to make it home.
I'm out here on my own, and drifting all alone.
If it doesn't show, give it time
To read between the lines.
'Cause I see the storm getting closer
And the waves they get so high.
Seems everything we've ever known's here.
Why must it drift away and die?

I'll never find anyone to replace you.
Guess we'll have to make it through this time,
Oh this time,
Without you.

I knew the storm was getting closer
And all my friends said I was high.
But everything we've ever known's here.
I never wanted it to die.
