loneliness lyrics – annie lennox

loneliness
is a place that i know well
it’s the distance between us
and the sp*ce inside ourselves

emptiness
is the chattering in your head
it’s the call of the living
and the race from life to death
woh and i know
yes and i know
what you feel?

and i’ve got a longin’ that’s hard to find
won’t give me no peace of mind
something that i’ve lived with all along
days and weeks and months and years
filling in the time my dear
tryin’ to find the place where i belong

hopelessness
is the darkness in your heart
it’s the sound of one hand clapping
while it’s pulling you apart
woh and i know
yes and i know
what you feel?
i know what you feel, baby

and i’ve got a longin’ that’s hard to find
won’t give me no peace of mind
something that i’ve lived with all along
days and weeks and months and years
filling in the time my dear
tryin’ to find the place where i belong

and i got a hunger that’s hard to fill
driving me on overkill
tellin’ me that everything’s gone wrong
got me a need that i can’t break
all that i can hardly take
somehow i still keep on going strong

when i call your name, i’m gonna scream out loud
i’ll say “here i am standing in the crowd”
you’ll say “come to me with your open mind
you never know what you still might find”
but you keep me here like a cancelled flight
an empty train running through the night
an orphan child a broken shoe
and i’m still down here lookin’ out for you

are you there for me?
’cause i’m here for you
are you there for me?
i’m here for you
are you there for me?
i’m here for you
are you there for me?
i’m here for you
i’m here for you
i’m here for you
