If Loneliness Is a Shadow

If Loneliness is a Shadow

 

If loneliness is a shadow who wants to dance,

 

She dreams alone and she’ll take a chance,

 

At first she doesn’t understand,

 

As loneliness takes her by the hand,

 

But as imaginary music fills the air,

 

Loneliness spins her around the room,

 

Letting her forget despair and gloom,

 

When the sun sets and shadows grow,

 

This shadow takes her to the late, late show,

 

Hoping that she’ll be glad to stay,

 

Along with her dreams for one more day,

 

Her feet are nimble as she glides across the floor,

 

Her happiness complete and her heart soars,

 

No longer does she count the hours,

 

But time spent is time lost,

 

And she does not consider the cost,

 

Hello, Loneliness, Join her once again,

 

Let her dance the night away,

 

Tomorrow she’ll rise to a brand new day,

 

And she’ll dance, spinning round and round,

 

Keeping her smile with never a frown,

 

Giving her heart one more chance,

 

To wake in her world of lost romance,

 

Happiness and love will treat her well,

 

As she dances along a star lit trail,

 

An imaginary world where everything is real,

 

It lets her dance the way she feels,

 

Spinning dizzily as the music plays,

 

She prepares her heart for lonely days.
