Week 43: Aloneness

A song about embracing aloneness. Learning to go in and find what’s inside as a solution to loneliness, rather than looking for someone else to fill in that space.


43 Aloneness
Lyrics

Slow down and take a moment to behold the potency in your aloneness
Watch now, your basic reflex as you try to deflect the pain in your soul
See how every distraction just leaves you a little more homeless
Feel now the joy in falling as you give up the fight and you lose control

The pressure we feel to join a club of two in bed or three in a pub
Or ten in a team, a flock in a church, nobody wants to be left in the lurch
But something in this frightens me, that in this need we’re never free
To think or speak our truest thoughts for fear of losing our support

Slow down and take a moment to behold the potency in your aloneness
You sigh, you feel so sorry cause you’ve got nobody to have and to hold
But watch out your need for loving might make you a little backboneless
Keep an eye on how you shape yourself to fit in somebody’s mold

Falling in love, it’s such a rush, it’s like a drug, you can’t get enough
Losing yourself for days or years, thinking you’ve found the cure for fear
But then one day the thrill is gone and once again you feel alone
Forced to face the fragile self you tried to lose in somebody else

Slow down and take a moment to behold the potency in your aloneness
Deep in the caves of silence hear that small voice soft and clear
Give love to the one you find there, long left lonely crying and hopeless
See those dark eyes brighten, rushing up to the world for air

Fly me high and fly me low, there’s so much to see, flying all alone
Lost in worlds inside of me, a million ways to be, out there on my own
