Alone - Fatal Glory


A dark foggy night within this town
I’m feeling sad and a little down
I’m strolling slowly, my head down low
When I hear some footsteps, I speak “Hello? ”
There is no answer, I pick up the pace
Looking ahead, a determined face
Refusing to become another story
A part of the headlines fatal glory
I turn the corner all alone
I’m smarter than this, I should have known
I’m walking faster two blocks to go
I’m feeling safer, I begin to slow
I must have imagined, no danger in site
It looks as if I’m gonna be all right
I walk past the alley and across the street
Where I bump into him, with whom I meet
He looks real nice and apologizes sweetly
His face is nice, his clothes kempt neatly
He offers to walk me to my door
After tonight, my fear ignore
I walk up the steps, with him behind
Never once did it enter my mind
And as my key unlocked the door
My hands and face, they met the floor
All I remember is my home sweet home
Fore shortly after my soul did roam.
