What's loneliness? Freedom and space for reflection,
A vague shade of sadness that lurks and then fades,
A challenge to move in your own direction,
To be independent, to be unafraid.
But making your way you see someone who's farther
And feel like they've stolen a secret from you,
You try to catch up with this dangerous other
And learn that the secret is no way true.
You think you can read any thought of a stranger
Who makes you move forward, determined and fast,
And then you discover it's such a big danger -
Attraction, devotion... How long will it last?
Again it will lead to heartbreak and despair,
It's time to escape, slow down the pace
Until you're sure that nobody's there
And you can indulge in your lonely days.
