Lyrics

All these lonely hours
Trying hard to do good
What a fool I was to think
That I would make a mark

No one knows, no one cries
No one cares if I live or I die
No one knows my name

God is kind of funny
Punishing me like this
Everything I've done in life
Will soon be swept away

No one knows, no one cries
No one cares if I live or I die
No one knows my name

One sees
One cares
One knows
One shares

No one knows, no one cries
No one cares if I live or I die
No one laughs, no one sings
No one smiles at the gifts that I bring
No one knows my name
No one knows my name
