​Alone, Alone

This song is by Boz Scaggs and appears on the album Moments (1971).

I found a friend
Who says he hasn't any fears
He has a brother
Who's been sailing here for years

But if I have this friend for long
He'll hear this sad confusing song
And look away from all he thinks he knows
And wonder where it goes

Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone
Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone

And I found a friend
Who says he's shedding no more tears
Got him a woman
Who will love him through the years

If I've ever known his dreams
Things are all the way they seem
He'll walk away from all his promises
And laugh about betrayal

Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone
Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone

And I found a friend
Who has not been here very long
He goes 'round and 'round
And spins you out a song

He says his memory's to blame
When nothing ever sounds the same
Here, "I'm going inside the words", he said
And crawl back out the hole

Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone
Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone

And I found a friend
Who says he cannot sleep at night
He lies awake
And balls his fists to beat the fright

He says it's hard to get ahead
And things are better done than said
It's a lonesome situation here
Hard and long and gone

Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone
Turn his head and look away
Alone, alone

And I found some friends
Who turn their heads and look away
(Man, what's wrong with you)
With all their reasons
Sounding good for things they say

If I have these friends for long
I'd get so lost inside this song
I'd get away from what I'm leaning on
Go on and on and on

Turn my head and look away
Alone
Turn my head and look away
Alone, alone

Turn my head and look away
Alone, alone
Turn my head and look away
Alone, alone
