Per: Wrote this a long long time ago. I don't know why we never recorded it properly and put it out. So many songs, so little time…

Roxette – Original Version 3:54

Can you tell me where it leaves
When it’s neverending?
Can you tell me where to go
When no one’s home?

And I know you know
It hurts
It hurts to be alone
You’re on your own
On the one-way train going down

Can you tell me what to say
When there’s no one listening?
Can you show me what to do
When all is done?

I know you know
It hurts
It hurts to be alone
The plan has gone wrong
Like a runaway train going down
Going down, down, down
Going down
Going down, down, down
Oooohhhh

Yes I know you know
It hurts
It hurts to be alone
You’re on
On your own
On a one-way train going down
Going down
Going down, down, down
Going down
Going down, down, down

That’s the feeling
It hurts to be alone…
Going down
