alone lyrics – depeche mode

i was there when you needed me most
i was there when you wanted me least
i was your father, your son, and your holy ghost and priest

through your failures and success
through your losses and gains
i didn’t see much happiness or pain

i couldn’t save your soul
i couldn’t even take you home
i couldn’t fill that hole
alone

i saw you at your best
i knew you at your worst
i couldnt tell if you were blessed or cursed

there’s a thin grey line
between the black and white
it’s evidently hard to find at night

i couldn’t save your soul
i couldn’t even take you home
i couldn’t play that role
alone

now it’s too, too late for words
that should have been said long ago

i was there when you needed me most
i was there when you wanted me least
i was your father, your son, and your holy ghost and priest

i couldn’t save your soul
i couldn’t even take you home
i couldn’t fill that hole
alone
