Song#: 14

Album
Name of Song: Unless you have a friend

The world can seem impersonal
like hoping it will end,
It plays upon unwanted thoughts
unless you have a friend.

Aloneness can be daunting,
The future fades away,
It plays upon unwanted thoughts
and can change you in every way.

Predicting your own future,
A gem among the noise,
Totally worth fighting for,
It calms and gives you poise.

Chorus
There’s a loneliness that quivers
unless you have a friend,
The world is made for minimum 2,
It’s the message that it sends.

It can be hard to co-exist
with another human being,
It’s not their fault and neither yours,
Just traps prevent you seeing.
It’s hard to stay above it all
Unless you have a friend,
Someone just to be around
and know there is no end.

Someone just to be around
and know there is no end.

Unless you have a friend to be
and sit and eat and laugh,
There’s this feeling of something extra
that really has no part.
