Sometimes I wonder where I've been,
Who I am, 
Do I fit in.
Make believein' is hard alone,
Out here on my own. 

We're always provin' who we are,
Always reachin'
For that risin' star
To guide me far
And shine me home,
Out here on my own.

When I'm down and feelin' blue,
I close my eyes so I can be with you.
Oh, baby be strong for me;
Baby belong to me.
Help me through.
Help me need you.

Until the morning sun appears
Making light 
Of all my fears,
I dry the tears
I've never shown,
Out here on my own.

But when I'm down and feelin' blue,
I close my eyes so I can be with you.
Oh, baby be strong for me;
Baby, belong to me.
Help me through.
Help me need you. 

Sometimes I wonder where I've been,
Who I am,
Do I fit in.
I may not win, 
But I can't be thrown,
Out here on my own,

Out here on my own.
