 アローン・アゲイン(原題:Alone Again)

詩・曲:ギルバート・オサリバン

In a little while from now, not feeling any less sour
I promise myself to treat myself and visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top to throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to who-
ever what it’s like when you’re shattered
Left standing in the lurch at a church where people saying
“My God, that’s tough, she stood him up
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home” as I did on my own
Alone again, naturally

To think that only yesterday, I was cheerful bright and gay
Looking forward to who wouldn’t do the role I was about to play?
And as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt, talk about God in his mercy
Who if He really does exist, why did He desert me
In my hour of need, I truly am indeed
Alone again, naturally

It seems to me that there are more hearts broken in the world
Than can’t be mended, left unattended
What do we do?  What do we do?

Looking back over the years and whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died, never wishing to hide the tears
And at sixty-five years old my mother, God rest her soul
Couldn’t understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me, no words were ever spoken
When she passed away, I cried and cried all day
Alone again naturally
Alone again…   naturally
