Intro: 8 bars (key of C)

Sometimes a little solitude's
Precisely what you need.
A quiet little getaway
Beneath some shady trees.
A place where no one bothers you
A space to call your own.
A sanctuary for your mind
A place to feel at home.

Crowds of people everywhere
No place or space to breathe.
These four walls that surround me
Are closing in on me.


Sometimes alone's not loneliness
It just means peace of mind.
When youíre all wound up from working
It helps you to unwind.
The rustling of the autumn leaves
The tune a song bird sings
Can take a man to paradise
And give him eagleís wings.

Crowds of people everywhere
No place or space to breathe.
These four walls that surround me
Are closing in on me.


Interlude: 8 mesures

Sometimes silence is the music
That soothes the savage beast.
Itís the poetry of nature,
The sunrise in the east.
Itís time for some retrospection,
A time to feel alive.
Without a little peace of mind
A man cannot survive.

Sometimes a little solitudeís
Exactly what we need.

Beautiful. Had me thinking a bit about the virus and how since March I have been more than less stuck between the same old same. Loved every minute of this. Thank you for sharing.
