There's no hope for me, I'm a girl left alone
With crowds all around me, I feel all alone
I can't tell my story for whom it will hurt
And now I can see that's there's no room for me

I'm a girl left alone, there's no hope for me
I'm tossed to and fro like a ship on a sea
There was a mistake and now I will pay
For those that still love me, I must go on this way

We hear the great story of the great eternity
Where souls can be happy and I will be free
I know I will suffer in this world eternally
But in heaven I wonder if there'll be hope for me
