Intro: G F F C

      Am                   G        Dm                   Am
I’m sitting here all alone, playing on my guitar
            Am                   G                      Dm                   Am
There’s lots of people close to me, but still they are so far
              Am                        G                                Dm                 Am
I should study, work, and enjoy myself, but I have no time to be free
 Am                            G                       Dm                 Am   G
I don’t want all these shallow things, I just want to be me

     C                             G                                 Dm                   Am
I’m on my own, there’s no one beside me to catch me when I fall
      C                                            G                                         Dm                    Am
I’m searching my soul, but when fears make me cold there’s no one there at all
                     G                                     G                                  G
To give me strength when I’m weak, warmth when I’m cold, ways when I’m lost
 G                                F                        C
Closeness when I’m alone, I’m on my own

I’m wasting my time on loneliness cause I don’t feel like I belong
I’m hiding my feelings, I’m hiding myself, all I do is wrong
What shall I do? This life seems too hard, I just wanna run away
I don’t wanna face this, not by myself, but still I’m gonna stay

I’m on my own, there’s no one beside me to hold me when I cry
I’m searching my soul but when tears start to flow there’s no one I can rely on
To give me strength when I’m weak, warmth when I’m cold, ways when I’m lost
Closeness when I’m alone, I’m on my own

      F                                G                   Em             Am
And all these fears keep haunting me, twisting me inside
  F                      G
I just wanna be alive

     D                             A                                         Em             Bm
I’m on my own, there’s no one beside me and it’s driving me insane
      D                                              A                                    Em                       Bm
I’m searching my soul but there’s no one to hold who can ease all this inner pain
               A                                       A                              A
I should study and work, I should enjoy myself, but I’m wasting my time
                 A                        G                         D
Cause I’m not made to be alone, I’m on my own

  Bm                A      Em                Bm
I see you all alone, playing on your guitar
       Bm                       A                     Em                  Bm
You sing they are not close to you, you sing they are so far
                      Bm                      A                                    Em               Bm
You say why study, work, and enjoy yourself when you have no time to be free
        Bm                              A                          Em              Bm       A
But please remember you're never alone, you're never on your own

       D                      A                                  Em                Bm
I'm always here, I'm always beside you, I'll console you if you cry
                    D                                         A                                   Em                          Bm
When you're searching your soul and your fears make you cold, we'll wave those fears goodbye
                     A                                    A                                   A
I'll give you strength when you're weak, warmth when you're cold, ways when you're lost
          A                    G                    D
I'll support you if you fear, I'm always here

You don't waste your time on loneliness, those words make me cry inside
Do not hide from your feelings, nor hide from yourself, put those thoughts aside
Life seems so hard but all we can do is to cry and to walk along
You don't have to face this, not by yourself, together we will be strong

I'm always here, I'm always beside you, I'll hold you if you cry
When you're searching your soul and your tears start to flow, I'll hug you and wipe them dry
Try to study and work, please enjoy yourself, you're not wasting your time
Please remember not to fear, I'm always here
I'm always here
