Petrified

I'm surrounded by people, but still feel alone,
I'm running, not stopping, or I'll turn to stone. 
The moment my feet freeze the panic sets in, 
My tongue turns to silver, my heart turns to tin! 
​​​​​​
I'm petrified, 
And I cannot move, 
I'm terrified, 
I've got everything to lose-

I'm surrounded by people and still feel alone, 
I'm playing the music but can't hear the tone. 
But the moment the song stops, the silence takes hold, 
My fingers turn to granite, my lungs turn to gold! 

I'm petrified, 
And I cannot move, 
I'm terrified, 
I've got everything to lose-

I'm surrounded by people, but still feel alone, 
I'm dancing the waltz, but I'm all on my own, 
But when someone joins in my feet miss a step, 
My legs turn to sandstone, my feet turn to lead. 

I'm Petrified - 
I've got everything to lose... 
I'm terrified - 
Because I don't want to lose...
