kyricom: I think you want us to have shots that CONNOTE loneliness, not denote it. ( 5 years and 2011 days ago )
adeincyprus: is anybody actually reading the guide for this contest...........so many entries depicting empty, rather than lonely.......and some so far away from the topic idea, dunno what they are doing here at all......... ( 5 years and 2009 days ago )
adeincyprus: there is a difference between empty and lonely...... ( 5 years and 2009 days ago )
friiskiwi: A lot of it has to do with interpretation, in my mind loneliness and solitude are different, but looking in the dictionary it seems to be pretty much the same.
I felt loneliness was something sad and not chosen, while solitude is something peaceful and quiet. ( 5 years and 2007 days ago )

Here in the dark I feel electric
I sense my skin in between the waves
I am human, I am criminal
But I feel life here in my heart again

Standing in the rain
Thinking of a way
To keep these feelings inside
Walk away from here
Before the words appear
I will be silent

Here in the dark
I feel electric
I sense my skin in between the waves
I am human, I am criminal
But I feel life here in my heart again

I hide behind the walls
So you don't notice me at all
But it hurts me so
I'm waiting in the wind
Whispering the things
I want you to know...

Here in the dark
I feel electric
I sense my skin in between the waves
I am human, I am criminal
But I feel life here in my heart again
Only for you... (5 years and 2011 days ago)

Wrap me in a bolt of lightning
Send me on my way still smiling
Maybe that's the way I should go,
Straight into the mouth of the unknown
I left the spare key on the table
Never really thought I'd be able to say
I merely visit on the weekends
I lost my whole life and a dear friend

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, nevermind
God knows I've tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't wan't you to hurt
It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way

I finally put it all together,
But nothing really lasts forever
I had to make a choice that was not mine,
I had to say goodbye for the last time
I kept my whole life in suitcase,
Never really stayed in one place
Maybe that's the way it should be,
You know I've led my life like a gypsy

I've said it so many times
I would change my ways
No, nevermind
God knows I've tried

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't wan't you to hurt
It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way

I'll always keep you inside, you healed my
Heart and my life... And you know I try.

Call me a sinner, call me a saint
Tell me it's over I'll still love you the same
Call me your favorite, call me the worst
Tell me it's over I don't wan't you to hurt
It's all that I can say. So, I'll be on my way
So, I'll be on my way
So, I'll be on my way
