Alone And Desolate

Oh gosh! It is that time of the day again.
I am sitting here all alone
Yeah all alone and desolate
I am watching the sun go down
The evening is slowly creeping in
Gently covering the world around me
With its blanket of darkness.

I hear the sound of the birds
Chirping the daylight away
The call of the homecoming cows
Mooing to their loved ones to reassure
The frantic cry of the goats
Searching for their lively kids
But in my world I am all alone
Yeah! all alone and desolate.

The sky city is preparing for the night.
Here and there I can see the street lights
Shimmering and twinkling in the night breeze
Peeping shyly at the earth below
As if afraid to see my suffering
Yes! Afraid to see the shadows that fills my world
No light is shining through this darkness
Oh! I feel so alone,
Yeah! So alone and desolate
