Alone



*Turn it inside out so I can see the part of you that's drifting over me

And when I wake you're never there, but when I sleep you're everywhere

You're everywhere*

Chloe felt Clark's presence at all times. She could feel him with every fiber of her being no matter where he was. It broke her heart that he was never around. It hurt her even more that she knew he wasn't around because he was off chasing his 'telescope girl.'

*Just tell me how I got this far, tell me why you're here and who you are

'Cause every time I look you're never there and every time I sleep you're always there*

Chloe couldn't resist his Kent charm. She didn't know what was worse, knowing that he wanted Lana and not her, or that he was seducing her and he didn't even know it!

*'Cause you're everywhere to me, and when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know that makes me believe

I'm not alone

I'm not alone*

When Chloe is even in the same room as Clark she feels completely safe. She knows she would never be alone or unwanted ever again if she was with him. She couldn't stop thinking about him. Clark occupied her every thought, want, and need.

*I recognize the way you make me feel, it's hard to think that you might not be real

I sense it now, the water's getting deep, I try to wash the pain away from me

Away from me*

She knew he never even thought about looking at her the way she looked at him. She was so caught up in him that she couldn't think straight. She was going to go crazy if she didn't get herself in check. It was just that everytime she was with Lana she felt a pain that she had never felt before. It took her breath away.

*'Cause you're everywhere to me, and when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know that makes me believe

I'm not alone

I'm not alone*

Chloe hated the aching emptiness in her heart when he wasn't around. To get rid of that feeling would also mean getting rid of the leap her heart made when Clark entered the room. She wouldn't trade the latter feeling for the world!

*And when I touch your hand, it's then I understand

The beauty that's within, it's now that we begin

You always light my way, I hope there never comes a day

No matter where I go, I always feel you so*

Chloe knew how beautiful Clark was inside. Lana couldn't see it the way Chloe could. That was Lana's problem, she didn't even know what she had. Lana was a fool! Clark was the only good thing in Chloe's Life. She had to find a way to tell him how she felt. If he knew, then maybe he could learn to love her.

*'Cause you're everywhere to me, and when I close my eyes it's you I see

You're everything I know that makes me believe, I'm not alone

'Cause you're everywhere to me, and when I catch my breath it's you I breathe

You're everything I know that makes me believe, I'm not alone*

Yes, she would tell Clark. That was the only option. His rejection couldn't hurt her anymore than seeing him gaze after Lana. All she could think was, What if he doesn't reject me? What if he could try to love me? She would confess to him and take it from there. As hard as she tried, she couldn't help letting her heart soar with the thought that Clark might not be opposed to the idea of being with her.

*You're in everyone I see

So tell me, Do you see me?*
