Alone-A Heart Rewrite


Rewrite of Heart's classic song by the same name

Plot-A father grieves the loss of his only child

All I hear is the ticking of the clock
As I lay here in the cold pitch dark
I can hardly believe what you let happen tonight
And through I want it so bad to go
The pain lingers on so strong I can barely make it through
Dying at the thought
Your left our baby girl alone
Alone

'Till now I never thought I would ever be angry enough
To turn on one of my own
I never dreamed I could learn to hate you
And now it chills me to the bone
How could you leave her alone
How could you leave her alone

You don't know how badly this heart aches
If only I could
I just might squeeze your lily white throat
Between my hands so tight
Yes, if I see you
I might even do it tonight
I could gladly in this moment
Turn on one of my own
Because you so carelessly left her alone
Alone

Repeat chorus

How could you leave her alone
How could you leave our little girl alone
Alone
All alone
So cold
So alone
Alone

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
