The feeling of freedom when you are no longer bound to someone (mentally or spiritually).
Great book title by John Knowles.
You piss me off, I'll write a song about you...
A song about being left in the dust as one's personal evolution is not matched by another's evolution.
I thought I knew you,
I thought I knew what you were about.
I thought you loved me,
but now I'm filled with doubts.
The saying goes, "Love all men, trust a few..."
I used to think I could trust you.
But I just don't have time for this pain.
My life continues to evolve.
And if in that evolution you don't choose to find me
I know my life will go on.
(Chorus) I have found a separate peace,
freedom from the worries that bind me.
And I've found that in that separate peace
no one has the power to blind me.... To blind me.
I see you pause,
don't look so surprised.
I told you once
I could see through all the lies.
What did you think?
That I'm some kind of fool?
Someone to use
and discard when you're through?
Well I'm sorry, but the time has come
for me to take off your disguise.
"Have we not heard the chimes at midnight?"
I gave you trust you gave me lies! But....
It's refreshing to be where I am.
To have peace and finally see
all the times you played my hand
you played for yourself.
You played for yourself,
you played for yourself and not me.
The time has come
to say our good-byes.
I'm not your toy,
so wipe those tears from your eyes.
What will you do?
I don't give a damn.
Frankly, my dear,
I'm sure you have a plan.
And I just don't have time for this pain,
my life continues to evolve.
And if in that evolution you can't find me,
I know your life will go on, because
