"I set to sea on a ship called Emptiness

Cast away on the Island of Loneliness"

Does it get more desparate than that?

How about:

...looking for a job, but i get no offers.... just a come-on from the whores on seventh avenue... I do declare there were times when I was so lonesome I took some comfort there.

"The Boxer" Paul Simon

These have always been two of my all-time faves:

"Oh, I said "I'm so happy, I could die."

She said "Drop dead," then left with another guy."

Elvis Costello - "The Angels Wanna Wear My Red Shoes"


"It´s funny how I could never cry

Until tonight and you pass by

Hand in hand with another guy

You´re dressed to kill and guess who´s dying?"

Roxy Music (Bryan Ferry) - "Dance Away"

Where has love gone?

Out on the road today, I saw a Dead Head sticker on a Cadillac.....

.....and he carries the reminder of every glove that laid him down and cut him 'till he cried out, in his anger and his shame, 'I am leaving, I am leaving', but the fighter still remains...........

....And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make...

I'm a cork on the ocean, floatin' over the raging sea.......

"Long ago an innocence

Lived deep within my soul

In a yesterday where love

And dreams remain

But disillusion clouds my eyes

And the winter takes it's toll

For the spring has gone

And will not come again"

"Now the sweet bells of mercy drift through the evening trees, young men on the corner like scattered leaves,

the boarded up windows, the empty streets,

While my brother's down on his knees..."

"Life is just a lonely highway

I'm out here on the open road

I'm old enough to see behind me

But young enough to feel my soul..."

"Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood

When blackness was a virtue and the road was full of mud, I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form. "Come in," she said,

"I'll give you shelter from the storm..."

"And I need you more than want you

And I want you for all time" - Jimmy Webb

"Is a dream a lie if it don't come true

Or is it something worse?" - Bruce Springsteen

"And I don't know a soul who's not been battered

I don't have a friend who feels at ease

I don't know a dream that's not been shattered

or driven to its knees

but it's alright, it's alright

for we lived so well so long

Still, when I think of the

road we're traveling on

I wonder what's gone wrong

I can't help it, I wonder what has gone wrong" - Paul Simon

Just one more:

what's it all about alfie

is it just for te moment we live

what's it all about when you sort it out alfie

are we meant to take more than we give

or are we meant to be kind

and if only fools are kind alfie

then i guess it's wise to be cruel

and if life belongs only to the strong alfie

what will you lend on an old golden rule

as sure as i believe there's something much more

something even non-believers can believe in

i believe in love alfie

without true love we just exist alfie

until you find the love you've missed you're nothing alfie

when you walk let your heart lead the way

and you'll find love any day alfie alfie - Hal David
