I walked alone on a lonely night,
Seeing men and women, wander in sight
Something of an enigma I came upon
Like a deer in the headlights, protecting its Fawn.
I wondered why I walked alone
Was this a punishment for which I had to atone?
To walk alone on a lonely night?
Was this my life’s eternal plight?
Whatever happened to wrong and right?
When was happiness ever in spite?
I just need an easy friend,
Who may be there until the end,
Is this really too much to ask?
Is this impossible for the Heaven’s to task?
I walk right past the bar,
Where men dream and see the stars,
Why am I an unhappy man?
When I’ve done all I can?
I walked alone this lonely night
When I came across a child in fright
He said to me a man shall follow
Wearing a mask, his body hollow
I indulged him, the child in fright
Told him everything would turn out alright
'Til I looked behind me
The child screamed'Twas a man, as thin as could be
He looked in dismay
As I walked away
I looked behind as he followed me
Not an inch shorter than me
He had a knife, as sharp as could be
I walked with someone that lonely night
Wishing that I had endured the fright
