Name of Song: No one to talk to, no one to listen

No one to talk to,
No one to listen,
There’s a void in where I’m going to,
No friend to create some life with.

There’s a place I try to go to,
In my mind, but it’s very old,
I think I’ve done this all before,
Maybe a source of my feeling so bored?

Can I reach the place that’s right for me,
Do I do it with a friend,
Do I do it with my spouse or stranger,
Will it finally give me an end.

Chorus
There are places we like to go to,
There are times we all want back,
Can these fixations be the source of,
Why it’s so hard to find a friend.

We seem to be always looking,
For that special one like us,
Considering we’re all so unique as self,
This is quite a daunting task.

Then we find that one that seems right,
Frustrations longing, so we jump right in,
Then we find this one is not quite right,
Where do we go from here?

We’re all so beautiful deep down,
This is true I’ve seen it myself,
How do you stay separate and still be a part of the game,
How can you just stay yourself.

Chorus
There are places we like to go to,
There are times we all want back,
Can these fixations be the source of,
Why it’s so hard to find a friend.

We’d like our spouse to be our best friend,
After all we live in the same house,
Or even our mother or father or brother,
Or sister, or maybe even the dog.

The basic makeup of this physical universe,
Seems to have a prerequisite of two,
It’s made that way, although we are not,
We must learn or we go askew.

It’s laws are not what we’re made of,
But it’s constant urge is for us to be like it,
You can’t hope to release “yourself” from yourself,
If you constantly do what it directs.

Chorus
There are places we like to go to,
There are times we all want back,
Can these fixations be the source of,
Why it’s so hard to find a friend.

It takes quite some personal self discipline,
To start doing what you truly desire,
That would suppose that you’re boss and you run your own show,
And you’re not really anybody else.

It’s a sin to do this on this planet,
You must instead become like those who have frayed,
And if you stray from the frayed who have supported your life,
You might have to pay because they feel you’ve betrayed.

This can make finding a true friend somewhat confusing,
Who are you, what should you be doing, who should you be with;
You can get caught between two different moral codes,
Which can make you feel like you’re living in a myth.

Chorus
There are places we like to go to,
There are times we all want back,
Can these fixations be the source of,
Why it’s so hard to find a friend.

______

The stable point of keeping sane, is being self,
What is self, why are we here, who really is God?
We look around to find some answers to all these questions,
Or we don’t, and end up becoming like everybody else.

Chorus
There are places we like to go to,
There are times we all want back,
Can these fixations be the source,
Why it’s so hard to find a friend.
