all this world


pale and clear the light of dawn
evening's laughter long gone
even love a forgotten need

draw the shade and face the day
feel illusion float away
hold the dream and let it free

how many strangers d'you have to meet?
how many old friends d'you have to see?
with how many lovers d'you have to sleep?
to know that you're alone in all this world

feel the fear and let it pass
hear the questions no-one asks
close your eyes and let them see

how many strangers d'you have to meet?
how many times kneel at your god's feet?
with how many lovers d'you have to sleep?
to know that you're alone in all this world
