What can you do

What can you do when you feel all alone
And the world doesn’t care who you are
How can you live if you’re treated like stone
And your love has to travel so far
Sweet are your dreams where no distances count
And so sour are the days where they do
Why must you feel you’d give any amount
Just to see if the feelings are true
I may not know if I’ll ever be there
Although I know that I want to know
Maybe one day I can fly off to share
All the love that I’m wanting to grow
Now is the time that I head off to bed
And the dreams that I mentioned before
In just a short while you will be in my head
And then I shall not care any more
