Verse 1: My life's so sad. I'm all alone.
Left to live life with no one with me, at home.
And, if that's the way it is, I'll just go on.
Verse 2: I know they say, I'll never see
What it is like to know a heart that's light and free.
My heart is not free, now; will never be.
Chorus 1: I don't want any of your sympathy.
I don't want you.
Take one deep look into my eyes and see,
I'm not real. I'm not here.
Verse 3: It isn't nice. It isn't easy.
I've taken far too much in getting more for me.
And, I'm paying for it, now. With the soul in me.
Chorus 2: I cast myself away from people's love;
Pushed off the pain.
When I die, I won't be sent high above.
I will have lived in vain.
Verse 4: My life's been sad. I'm still alone.
The time is high, I'm dead and buried in the ground.
So, as I lie here in my grave,
Please lay a white rose on my stone.
