Lyrics:

Sometimes you're hearing voices that no one else can hear
Don't have a lot of choice when you can't make them disappear
And so you ride in wooden horses, and hope that you appear
The way they want you to be

You ask me if you're crazy, and I can't say for sure
I only know you're interesting and not just insecure
And with no basis for comparison I only know that you're
The way I'd want you to be

You've had a long and lonely day
No one really hears the words you say
When everyone just smiles and walks away
I know just how you feel

You try so hard and still your world is not the way you planned
You fall down on your knees each time you try to take a stand
So if you're tempted by conformity of course I'll understand
That's how they want you to be

You've had a long and lonely day
No one really hears the words you say
When everyone just smiles and walks away
I know just how you feel

You're not alone
Believing in your dreams
You're not alone
As crazy as it seems
There's someone out there, who knows the way you feel
When none of this seems real
You're not alone

Sometimes you want to run away, you wouldn't be the first
It's hard to face another day when half the time it hurts
But still the person that you are today, both blessing and a curse,
Is how I'd want you to be

You're not alone
Believing in your dreams
You're not alone
As crazy as it seems
There's someone out there, who knows the way you feel
When none of this seems real
You're not alone

When the bridge beneath your sanity is feeling paper-thin
And the hole they've got you pegged for doesn't match the shape you're in
And all I've got to offer you is to tell you once again
You're not the only one,
You're not alone

You've had a long and lonely day
No one really hears the words you say
When everyone just smiles and walks away
I know just how you feel

Imagine what might happen if our two worlds could collide
We'd ride those wooden horses til we'd reach the other side
And though they still might never hear us, at least we'd know we'd tried..

You're not alone
Believing in your dreams
You're not alone
As crazy as it seems
There's someone out there, who knows the way you feel
When none of this seems real

You're not alone
With no one else around
Still not alone
As crazy as that sounds
There's someone out there, who knows the way you feel
When none of this seems real
You're not alone
