Well I've tried and tried to hold it back
Sweep it away was my holy tact
All my demons seem to haunt me now

When you took off to chase your dreams
I wanted you to stay with me
I guess I'm still that selfish boy you knew

But it's a long way from home
A home I've never known
So just promise me I won't always be alone

Because emotion hits me hard at times
Silently screaming for a life like you
A life like you

But I'll always be that selfish boy you knew

Well I knew that you had said goodbye
When darkness greeted me at night
You always left the light on just for me

So now I walk these city streets
Praying there's a soul I'll meet
Who doesn't see the broken man I am

But it's a long way from home
A home I've never known
So just promise me I won't always be alone

Because emotion hits me hard at times
Silently screaming for a life like you
A life like you

But I'll always be that selfish boy

Oh Mary won't you shelter me?
And keep the darkness away from me
Oh Mary won't you shelter me?
And keep the darkness away from me
Oh Mary won't you shelter me?
And keep the darkness away from me
Oh Mary won't you shelter me?

But it's a long way from home
A home I've never known
So just promise me I won't always be alone

Because emotion hits me hard at times
Silently screaming for a life like you
A life like you
A life like you

Oh Mary won't you shelter me?
And keep the darkness away from me
Because Emotion hits me hard at times 
Silently screaming for a life like
Mary won't you shelter me?
And keep the darkness away from me
Because emotion hits me hard at times
Silently screaming for a life like you
A life like you

But I'll always be that selfish boy
