Lyrics
The song is sad (words and music by Alan Gillis)

Walking down the road alone tonight
Watch my shadow pass me and fade from sight
Try counting street lamps to ease my mind
Sing to myself but the song I find
Is sad
The song is sad

Looking at the sky and counting stars
Wondering how long it takes to get to Mars
Try anything to relieve my mind
Sing to myself but the song I find
Is sad
The song is sad

Bridge
The song is sad 'cause I don't have you
Walking by my side down this avenue
Wond'ring if you've got this lonely feeling
Feel like head's banging on the ceiling
I'm sad, I'm sad

Walking down the road alone tonight
Kicking up the stones that shine in the moonlight
Try to pretend everything?s all right
Sing to myself but the song I find
Is sad
The song is sad
