    No matter how many people surround me
    Deep down, I still stay alone
    A dozen close friends could sit in the room
    But still, I'd be left alone.

    A clown on the street blows balloons in my face
    & I scream, "Leave me alone!"
    A kid in a store kicks a ball at my feet
    I kick back mad all alone.

    A lover begs entry into my heart
    & I say, "Leave me alone."
    A lost friend returns with old times in his arms just to find
    I'm best left alone.

    No one is there to catch me when I drop.
    I'm getting ready to need no one
    And I can't stop.

    When we have gone so long feeling alone, it is often hard to take a chance at being anything other then alone. Daily continuity and familiarity, even with its sad reality, feels safer then to risk what little security we have left. Sometimes we have to take a leap, sometimes we have to trust, sometimes we don't need to open the door, we need only remove the locks and allow the kindness of others to open the door. :)
