when i’m alone lyrics – the rifles

“when i’m alone”

everytime i catch your eye in the streetlight
late at night when i walk you home
i hate to think that you’re not mine
so then i’ll try to make you feel i don’t want you
i don’t want to go down that road we always get in a big fight
it happens all the time
so i say that i’m just your friend and i’m willing to try
but no i won’t carry on pretending, it’s all a lie
’cause i smile when you’re there but i cry when i’m all alone
but it’s far too hard to say to you “don’t go”
don’t go…..
everytime i hear your voice on the phone line
late at night when your feeling low and you’re telling me to come over
it happens all the time
so when i say that i’m just your friend and i’m willing to try
but no i won’t carry on pretending, it’s all a lie
’cause i smile when you’re there but i cry when i’m all alone
but it’s far too hard to say to you don’t go
’cause i smile when you’re there but i cry when i’m all alone
but it’s far too hard to say to you “don’t go”
don’t go…..
smile when you’re there but i cry when i’m all alone
but it’s far too hard to say to you “don’t go”
don’t go…
