Paul Heaton

"Loneliness"

[Verse 1]
Solitude has only existed
Since overspill demanded a view
Finding a space has only been around
Since the invention of the bustling queue

Forcing everyone to be a loner
If they didn't join the regular crew
And if you weren't in the in-crowd, you were cast away
So don't let them cast away you

[Chorus]
Tight-knit families are tight enough
For stranglehold or turn of the screw
And the only reason we wanted out
Was the sort of crowd that 'ordinary' drew

[Verse 2]
Emptiness needs rowdiness
A reminder of why it's recluse
Rowdiness needs the gap emptiness leaves
To wallow in glorious youth

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
So as long as man Friday's gone by Saturday
You're sure to find the arguments stop
You don't need time, no space, no room
Just a story of which they're no part

Why a gentle request to be left alone
Feels like a kick in their heart
Why any hug lasting more than one second
Always seems your cue to depart

[Outro]
By all means be your own person
But they choose the time and the place
Please feel free to do your own thing
But make sure its done at their pace

Please feel free to do your own thing
But make sure its done at their pace...
