I'm all alone,
No place for home.
I have friends,
But they don't come along.
Daddy said mommy and him had to work.
You have to study hard,
Study hard,
Or you would lose your job.
What should be my job?
I don't know.
Tossing and turning for a night,
But still have no clue.
Late at night,
I feel lonely,
Cuz there're no people to talk to,
No people to listen to. 
Every boy in the school was starting to get girls to hang around.
I don't know how it would feel,
But I saw their smiles.
I want to smile,
But I can't.
Looking into the mirror,
I saw the tear on my face.
Am I crying?
Why am I crying?
Mom and daddy said:
Man up, son.
The great are always lonely.
You have your homework,
To start doing.
I remember back one day I got friends to talk.
They would listen to my voice and talk about theirs.
Until one day things were all gone out of control.
They left, they were gone.
And I was suddenly all alone.
I stared into the mirror,
Seeing the tear on my face.
And am I crying?
Why am I crying?
Mom and daddy said:
Man up, son.
The great are always lonely.
You have your homework,
To start doing.
