Isn't there anyone
Who'll take me like I am?
Someone who's willing
To take the blue in man

Someone that's pleased enough
With himself to let me be
Someone who'd love me
And try to understand my needs

No, I guess there isn't
And there's no place
I can go I guess
I'm destined to be alone

Good thing that somewhere
In this world there'll be
Someone who wouldn't
Always try to change me

Someone not trying to prove
Their way is right
Take a flame that's burnin?
And just put out the light

No, I guess there isn't
And there's no place
I can go I guess
I'm destined to be alone
