Black Holes

Alone
Alone
If feel so alone
If feel so alone beside you.

We’re sitting at this table
Staring in each other eyes
We don’t say a word - not able
To talk about our earthly lies.

There’s a big black hole deep down inside me
It’s there where I live, reside and stay
It’s a place you never entered, dear
It’s another universe - lightyears from you away.

If you could only sense this emptiness, dear
You would feel how much I'm alone
My soul cries for help - you don’t see a tear
When you are by my side and I still feel on my own
I can’t explain it - I won’t even try
You can’t see how much I deep down cry.

I cry and cry and cry - and weep: deep within my soul
‘Cause inside of me there’s a big, big black hole
I feel alone - even when you’re by my side
But, if you’re willing to dive into the real me
I’m willing to give up my exterior pride
Then yes, I’m willing to give up my pride.

- In 1993 vroeg een gitarist van Griekse nationaliteit mij om voor hem een Engelse tekst te schrijven. Of hij er achteraf muziek heeft op gemaakt, weet ik niet... En, aan de tekst, die hierna volgt - noem het de B-zijde - moest nog gewerkt worden... Maar, 'k geef toe dat ik geen songwriter ben. :-)

Alone

To be alone doesn’t mean
You have to feel lonely
‘Cause I’ve been lonely
The many, many years I wasn’t alone. (2x)

Sometimes we carry that empty feeling
Deep inside us - in heart and soul
We look around in search for that unique being
Who’ll take up that filling-up roll. (that filling-up roll.)

To be alone doesn’t mean
You have to feel lonely
‘Cause I’ve been lonely
The many, many years I wasn’t alone. (2x)

We open our hearts and close an eye
Start a new live - take a dive
We leave all our friends behind and pray
‘Cause that’s the price we have to pay. (That’s the price we have to pay.)

To be alone doesn’t mean
You have to feel lonely
‘Cause I’ve been lonely
The many, many years I wasn’t alone. (2x)

And when the love is gone, we break apart, we separate
We stand alone, things go wrong: time to contemplate
‘Cause we’re further away from home
And again, again, once again we feel alone.

But...
In these hard times of new misery
We’re not only alone - but also lonely
‘Cause all our friends have disappeared and gone
Our lives seem empty, no goals, things go wrong. (and wrong, and wrong.)

To be alone doesn’t mean
You have to feel lonely
‘Cause I’ve been lonely
The many, many years I wasn’t alone. (2x)

But when we reflect upon those empty days
We lived together with someone in several ways
We could have that strong feeling of being more alone
More alone, more alone, than living on our own...

To be alone doesn’t mean
You have to feel lonely
‘Cause I’ve been lonely
The many, many years I wasn’t alone. (2x)
