"The Lonely One" as written by Russell Smith, James H. Brown and Duncan Cameron....
Happy in solitude
Secure there's no-one to depend on
Scorning alms & good luck charms
Staring down to the rocks below

I was the lonely one
I didn't want no-one

An odyssey so solitary
Carries you forth to collide with me
Recognized familiar signs
We're hypnotized on the turning tide

You were the lonely one
Who didn't want no-one
I was the lonely one
I didn't want no-one

Here I stand on the shifting sand
Waves of lassitude wash inland
The lonely cry of a seagull flies
Into my mind and recalls a time

When I was the lonely one
Who didn't want no-one
You were the lonely one
No we didn't want no-one

Hear my hymn calling the lonely one
Hear my hymn for the lonely one

    General CommentGreat song, it looks like no one likes it like I do. Anyway, it reminds me when I was the lonely one, who didn't want no one :)
