This version of perhaps Gilbert`s most famous song was released in Japan in 1992 to mark the 20th Anniversary of the original recordings release in 1972 . This song is consistently used in Movie Soundtracks such as `The Virgin Suicides`, ` Stuart Little 2 `, ` Ice Age 3 ` and recently in ` Megamind `. This was called the `Present version ` for two reasons - meaning ` Now ` and also ` present ` as in a `gift ` to his fans . It`s a much simpler keyboard version without the guitar solo , but the lyrics remain as poignant and heartbreaking as ever -
ALONE AGAIN ( Naturally ) - Lyrics - In a little while from now, If I'm not feeling any less sour I promised 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 your shattered Left standing in the lurch, at a church Where people 're saying, "My God that's tough, she stood him up! No point in us remaining. May as well go home." As I did on my own, Alone again, naturally
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, All about God and His mercy For if He really does exist Why did He desert me In my hour of need I truly am indeed, Alone again, naturally
It seems to me that There are more hearts Broken in the world That can't be mended Left unattended What do we do? What do we do?
Now looking back over the years, And what ever else that appears I remember I cried when my father died Never wishing to hide the tears 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 Leaving her to start with a heart So badly broken Despite encouragement from me No words were ever spoken And when she passed away I cried and cried all day Alone again, naturally Alone again, naturally
