Rookie - 0 Points (11June 1940 / Binghamton, New York)



It's so cold, where has everyone gone
Why am I being left here again, all alone
No one seems to care if I live or die
All that ever happens is, they make me cry

I am so alone, why didn't they take me
Why was I left behind why can't they see
How much it hurts to be here all alone
When will they come back and take me home

I cry in silence so I don't get beaten
Afraid to let them know how I've been weakened
I will stay strong they'll never break me
I'll show them and be the best that I can be

They should have warned me,
That ten would be so hard
This loneliness will be with me forever
I mustn't fail at any endeavor

I'll go to school, learn all I can
Then show them all I am the man
I'll study hard and do it right
Even if it takes all night

They should have warned me,
That ten would be so hard
This loneliness will be with me forever
I mustn't fail at any endeavor
