Annie Lennox - Loneliness Lyrics




Loneliness
Is a place that I know well
It's the distance between us
And the space inside ourselves
And emptiness....
Is the chattering in your head
It's the call of the living
And the race from life to death
Woa 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
Woa 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

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
More than 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
Looki' out for you
Are you there for me?
'Cause I'm here for you

    I'm a guy- @58-yrs. Love Annie forever. I cover this song (guitar) at open jams & get the look (why a chick song ?) but when I finish their all in tears,,, so funny, then they get it, and we move on.....

  4. Nosferatu 85

    Who the hell disliked this?! This entire album is one of the best albums EVER made in the history of music... sometimes an opion is also fact. And this is a fact! 😍

    You have a talent for being 'subjective'!

  5. Joey Labrecque

    I was told when I was 18 that I had 3 to 5 years to live
    I was diagnosed with AIDS 3 years later
    Now 32 years later I have outlived ALL of my friends
    I remember them all fondly
    I think of them often
    They were ALL KIND and LOVING people
    This is why I think of them
    NONE of them deserve to be forgotten

    This song means so much to me because I have this sadness in my heart that won’t go away

    This song says it all in great detail
    Annie Lennox amazes me in SO MANY WAYS
    I am proud to be one of her biggest fans

    Joey Labrecque you are not alone. Diagnosed 16/01/1991. Most of my friends and my beloved died before 1996. Next year I will have been HIV+ for half my life. But long life until you are alone is not something they ever discuss. Worst, I am still treated as a pariah, a biohazard ☣️, I spent two years in hospital and no one touched me once. Of course in 1991, they gave me 12 years. In 2000 they guessed 72-10 to 20 years. Now that I am alone and disabled they no longer shorten my life expectancy. Great, a minimum of 12 years to spend home, alone with my cats. Oh well, I can use that time to give away all I own to people who will live long, healthy lives. I hope that in the last 33 years you have found love 💕. MarkDonaldRyanStern
