Recant some bits of poetry
You'll find the words still ring true
Some things don't change

And you're the only one with a broken heart
The only one who's afraid of the dark
The only one in a crowded room
The only one who sees a blue moon

And you're the only one who is all alone
The only one who's love is gone
The only one who has given in
And you're the only one with a broken heart
The only one who is falling apart
The only one in a crowded room
The only one who can see the blue moon

The only one who is falling apart
The only one who's afraid of the dark
The only one in a crowded room
The only one who sees the blue moon
