“Escape into Solitude”….Lyrics by Lynda

“Escape into Solitude”

Where comes this need to be alone?
Many want to know.
Not even she can understand-
‘Cept when it’s time to go.

She packs her bags and bids goodbye
To those she truly loves.
They smile, but cannot really grasp
Why they are not enough.

Excitement fills her being,
While guilt invades her mind:
Why this need for solitude,
To leave them all behind?

A special place she runs to,
Quiet and serene.
Everything in order,
Like she strives for things to be.

No one calling out her name;
She issues no commands.
Everything is in its place,
Nothing out of hand.

Someone once suggested
‘Perfection’s what she seeks.
And out here, where she runs to,
She finds its company.’

Perhaps within his wisdom
He hit upon the truth:
A part of her is nurtured
By this perfect solitude.

And so I ask forgiveness
For this part of me I am,
And also seek acceptance
From those who cannot understand.
