isolation lyrics – iggy pop

needed you
you were only using
needing you just
tore me down
here i stand
in isolation
feeling emptiness and doubt
walking down the
broken highway
sucking sugar
plain and sweet
did your mother
ever tell you
that the joyful are free

i need some lovin’
like an inmate needs a dime
i need some lovin’
like a poet needs a rhyme
here i stand in isolation
my empty hands – in isolation
walking down the
broken highway
sucking sugar
’cause it’s my way

find me one heart
to complete with
heading for the
farthest beaches
i need some lovin’
like a body needs a soul
i need some lovin’
like a fastball needs control
here i stand in isolation
my empty hands – in isolation
strike up the band
in this proud land

got a lot to do
got a lot to say
got a life to live
here i stand –
in isolation
