Siouxsie And The Banshees – The Lonely One lyrics

Happy in solitude
Secure there's no-one to depend on
Scorning alms & good luck charms
Staring down to the rocks below
I was the lonely one
I didn't want no-one
An odyssey so solitary
Carries you forth to collide with me
Recognised familiar signs
We're hypnotised on the turning tide
You were the lonely one
Who didn't want no-one
I was the lonely one
I didn't want no-one
Here I stand on the shifting sand
Waves of lassitude wash inland
The lonely cry of a seagull flies
Into my mind and recalls a time
When I was the lonely one
Who didn't want no-one
You were the lonely one
No we didn't want no-one
Hear my hymn calling the lonely one
Hear my hymn for the lonely one
