"Alone Again (Naturally)"

[Diana Krall:]
In a little while from now
If I'm not feeling anyless sour
I promise myself to treat myself
And visit a nearby tower
And climbing to the top will throw myself off
In an effort to make it clear to who
Ever what it's like when you're shattered

Left standing in the lurch at a church
Where people saying 'my God
That's tough she's stood him up
No point in us remaining
We may as well go home'
As I did on my own.
Alone again, naturally

[Michael Buble:]
To think that only yesterday
I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to well who wouldn't do
The role I was about to play

But as if to knock me down
Reality came around
And without so much
As a mere touch
Cut me into little pieces
Leaving me to doubt
Talk about God in his mercy
Who if he really does exist
Why did he desert me, in my hour of need?
I truly am indeed
Alone again, naturally.

[Diana Krall & Michael Buble:]
It seems to me that there are more hearts
Broken in the world that can't be mended
Left unattended

[Michael Buble:]
What do we do?

[Diana Krall:]
What do we do?

Alone again, naturally

[Michael Buble:]
Now looking back over the years
And whatever else that appears
I remember I cried when my father died
Never wishing to hide the tears

[Diana Krall:]
And at sixty-five years old
My mother God rest her soul
Couldn't understand why the only man
She had ever loved had been taken

[Diana Krall & Michael Buble:]
Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken
Despite encouragement from me no words were ever spoken
And when she passed away
Cried and cried all day
Alone again, naturally
Alone again, naturally
