Alanis Morissette – Moratorium lyrics

I've never been this accountable-less and within
I've never known focuslessness on any form

I've never had this lack of ache for dalliance
To let go and let God in ways I have never even imagined

I declare a moratorium on things relationship
I declare a respite from the toils of liaison
I do need a breather from the flavors of entanglement
I declare a full time out from all things commitment

I've never let my grasp soften fingers like this
I've never been careless otherless like autonomy's twin

I declare a moratorium on things relationship
I declare a respite from the toils of liaison
I do need a breather from the flavors of entanglement
I declare a full time out from all things commitment

Ah to breathe
Stop looking outside
Stop searching in corners of rooms
Not my business or timing
Ahhh

I've never known freedom from intertwining
I start again this time for keeps in my skin I'm residing

I declare a moratorium on things relationship
I declare a respite from the toils of liaison
I do need a breather from the flavors of entanglement
I declare a full time out from all things commitment

    To me it means that it's important to find meaning for ourselves even when we are alone, as in not in a relationship. Sometimes it feels nice to be independent, complication-free and just be. But the yearning for being relationship-free feels sincere in this song. (i think in many other songs songwriters write about how I wanna be alone and I don't need anyone etc. But the tone suggests that they are trying to accept being single, but wish that they weren't.) does that make sense?
