"Loneliness" as written by and Annie Lennox....
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
Whoa 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

    General CommentThis is one of my all time favorie songs. I really believe I will still love this when I am 80, its a classic and so clearly describes the harrowing lonliness you can feel in day to day life.

    Its a strange phenomina but the loneliest place you can be is often surrounded by people. They neither know nor really even like you, but your with them. That for me is lonliness, and this song sums it up extremely well.
