lyrics

I DON’T MIND BEING ALONE

Every night I lie in bed but stay awake
Thinking of the things that happened that day
You seem to ignore me but really I don’t care
In fact I’m happy when you’re not there

‘Cos I don’t mind being alone
So don’t you worry if I’m not home
Well we go crazy every time we have a fight
Well you should know by now that it will be alright

I walk out the door and down the street
Concentrating on the path and where to put my feet
I’ve been wandering and wondering why
I get so angry with you every time

‘Cos I don’t mind being alone
So don’t you worry if I’m not home
Well we go crazy every time we have a fight
Well you should know by now that it will be alright

I lie on the grass and stare at the sky
Watching the clouds and the birds go by
If I was a sparrow and you were a crow
If you caught me you would never even know

‘Cos I don’t mind being alone
So don’t you worry if I’m not home
Well we go crazy every time we have a fight
Well you should know by now that it will be alright

Let me fly into the storm
Don’t worry I won’t be gone long
Let me fly into the storm
I’m not scared of being tattered and torn
