Alone

(parody of "Alone" by Heart)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: the original is a haunting melody that begged for a Biblical treatment. I wrote two versions of this one, the first from Peter's perspective, the second from God the Father's. I can't decide which of the two is better. Either way, it's not often that my own lyrics make my eyes moist.


You changed my name to be "the rock," You chose my boat when you'd embark.
You wanted me to pray tonight, I fell asleep for time unknown.
And the night went by so very slow,
But the day is worse than all I've known.
Alone.

Chorus:
So now, You're facing this trial on Your own. I swore that I would die before I left You!
But then I told them, "He's unknown" - How could I leave You alone?
How could I leave You alone?

Three years I followed as You wandered, I thought I understood Your light.
Don't know if I'll be reinstated, 'cause three times I left You denied.
But the mystery will soon be shown, that Your purpose was to atone, alone.

chorus



I see the sleeping of Your flock, Gethsemane is all pitch dark.
Judas has brought You in tonight, to Annas with his heart of stone.
And the night goes by so very slow,
But the coming day is much worse, though.
Alone.

Chorus:
So now, You're facing this trial on Your own. We never said goodbye until I sent You.
And now it kills Me on My throne - How can I leave You alone?
How can I leave You alone?

You know how long We both have planned, to touch their race and make them right.
You taught and healed, and they have hated, and now the plan begins tonight.
And the mystery will soon be shown, that Your purpose is to atone, alone.
