"Isolation" as written by and Iggy Pop David Bowie....
Needed you, you were only using
Needing you just tore me down
And 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 reaches
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

    General Commentjust listened to this song (listening to Cry for Love, right now, another fabulous Iggy tracK)

    it's about being dumped and needing help and having no one to turn to, the person who dumped you only ever used you

    General CommentAt the end of the song, I always thought he repeated "God only laughs at you, God only laughs at you."
