Walking Alone



Don't take my hand
As I can't lead
Don't know where I'm going
Even though it's what I need

I've always been the one- not knowing where to go
In life
In love
I really don't know

No plans for tomorrow
No plans for the future
So I'll sit here once more
Waiting for some sign

It's a sign that I need
Some sort of direction
Need to know I'm being watched
Never alone

Don't take my hand
As I can't lead
Don't know where I'm going
Even though it's what I need
