Story behind the song
Thinking about different ways lonliness and a life of negative solitude effect different people.
He was dodging shadows in the doorways
On a night when the moon was cold and bright
His mind was full of drugs and hard times
He was afraid to face the light.
There was music playing in the distance
But much too far to reach his ears
He said, 'I've been banished to this island
Of my lonliness and fears.
Can you give me one last hope of freedom
Give me one last dream that will come true
I would give my one last hard-earned dollar
To break this chain of solitude.
She was shivering beneath the bedsheets
In a stranger's dark and dingy room
Watching as the clock moved slowly
Wishing morning would come soon.
There was true love calling in the distance
But much too far to reach her heart
She said, 'Time has stopped and left me stranded
And it's tearing me apart.
I know it's hard when you're walking along
To look strangers in the eye
So we turn our heads tho we know it's wrong
And still we hear the cry.
She was writing memos in the office
Four gray walls that seemed more like a cell
Would her job be there tomorrow
The way things go now who can tell.
There were promises spoken in the distance
But much too far to reach her mind
She said, 'This world is speeding in the fast lane
And it's leaving me behind'.
