Lonely in a Crowded Room

 

Everyone is alone here

Everyone is looking for someone

That will look at them tonight

Even if it's only a dazed glaze

After having a bit too much

They’ll accept the intoxicated breath

Just to be touched

 

We all want to be wanted …

 

Just to feel like

The big city hasn’t

Swallowed them whole

Just to feel for one night

To notice their soul

They’ll clasp desperately to

The stranger's hand

Grabbing for something more

 

Because everyone’s alone tonight

Everyone will leave with someone

Who they will probably never see again

Because although their act is not a sin

They will feel guilty

For revealing and engaging so deeply

With someone they will

Only embrace temporarily

 

Everyone’s alone tonight

From the tipsy politician

Crumbling under the burden of the crowd

To the lower levels kissing up

Sniffing for status like stray hounds

 

Everyone’s alone tonight

From the richest people

In the room

Who hide their insecurity with wealth

To me

The poor philosopher in the corner

Who studies everyone else

To avoid looking at himself

 

Everyone’s alone tonight …
