"Isolation" as written by and Lennon....
People say we got it made
Don't they know we're so afraid
We're afraid to be alone
Everybody got to have a home

Just a boy and a little girl
Trying to change the whole wide world
The world is just a little town
Everybody trying to put us down

I don't expect you, to understand
After you caused so much pain
But then again, you're not to blame
You're just a human, a victim of the insane

We're afraid of everyone
Afraid of the sun
The sun will never disappear
But the world may not have many years

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Lennon songs. Make sure you also check out "Jealous Guy" if you like this one.

    General CommentWhy have only two people posted for this song?? You all should be ashamed of yourselfes! knate15 and Eatcarpet good 4 u!! This song is absolutely fabulous, I think the main idea in this song is that u'll always be alone..."I don't expect you to understand" and no one really understans anyone "People say we got it made
    Don't they know we're so afraid?
    "We're afraid of everyone"...

    General CommentJohn and Yoko being watched by the FBI. He doesn't expect anyone to understand his pain of his message of trying to help the world because the mentality of the world doesn't care.He is also saying that the sun will be here but the world ie. humans will self destuct

    General CommentThis is a very special song to me - relate it to the way I have felt at times - kind of isolated. It seems, I agree, that it refers to John and Yoko being isolated and hurt through being misunderstood by the press, public and other Beatles.
