"Alone Again (Naturally)" (Music)

"Alone again?"
"Naturally."

Irishman Gilbert O'Sullivan was an odd fish. Living in England, he dressed in short trousers, suspenders, and turned up collars. This ensemble was topped with a large flat cap. He looked like he stepped out of one of Lowry's "Matchstick Men" paintings. Musically, he was sort of a poor man's Elton John, and as such, he struggled to achieve any real credibility in the music industry. He did, however, enjoy some big hits in both the UK and in the US, and "Alone Again (Naturally)" was his biggest. It's lyrically poignant and suited to Logan's drunken mood as he approaches the unattended Veronica:
To think that only yesterday, I was cheerful, bright and gay
Looking forward to, but 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).
