From the recording Relentless
You cling to the shadows in folly or fear
You’ve got to keep part of yourself
Just like everyone else
The world is a cold place
It’s been from the start
But have you taken a look at your heart
You left a man with a gun in his hand
Did you try?
Did you go back to see if he lived or if he died?
Did you cry?
Just one kind word or the warmth of your touch
Did you offer your sympathy, or was that too much?
You’re not an island
Don’t think that you are
Someday you’ll need something from someone like me
I’ll be in the bar
A garden of fool – twisted, tangled
the shrews have a laugh
They strangle and dangle
And their funny faces you pass
Did you laugh?
