Check out the index.

Alone Again album at
Gilbert O'Sullivan's, "Alone Again (Naturally)"
The 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.

I'll climb up to the top
and throw myself off
in an effort to make
a hint of who never
was like when you're
left shattered standing
in the latch at a church

Where people are
saying: "My god she stood him up"
There's no point in asking
I may as well go home
As I did on my own
Alone again naturally
The song is upbeat but when you think about it he's singing about killing himself because some girl stood him up in a church parking lot.
