Alone Down Here

from Side of the Road

I hope that were alone down here
I can sing and laugh and joke
Right here in front of you
But I hate to be seen doing something
That I shouldnt do
When Im at my worst I want to
Be in shadow
So I hope that were alone down here

And when we shout and scream down here
I pray the sound is music to
Someone whos never heard
A symphony to cover
The unkindness of our words
I hope whoever listens in
Will tune another station
When we shout and scream down here

And when we got to war down here
With all the fancy reasons
We can give to come to blows
The winners and the losers
And the dead lined up in rows
There never was a war without a reason
Heaven knows
I hope whoevers watching
Is making room for those
If not then were alone down here
