I Walk A Lonely Road Lyrics

Verse 1

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me, and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one, and I walk alone

Pre-Chorus

I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone, I walk a—

Chorus

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beatin’
Sometimes, I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then, I walk alone

Post-Chorus

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah

Verse 2

I’m walkin’ down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the borderline
Of the edge and where I walk alone
Read between the lines
What’s fucked up, and everything’s all right
Check my vital signs
To know I’m still alive, and I walk alone

Pre-Chorus

I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk alone, I walk a—

Chorus

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beatin’
Sometimes, I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then, I walk alone

Post-Chorus

Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah
Ah-ah, ah-ah
I walk alone, I walk a—

[Guitar Solo]

Bridge

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I’m the only one, and I walk a—

Chorus

My shadow’s the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart’s the only thing that’s beatin’
Sometimes, I wish someone out there will find me
‘Til then, I walk alone
