away from the sound of the big city
I find a peace all my own
in between the jealousies of the world
I find my own seclusion
a world all my own, all mine to own,
just as a story lives in the mind,
the middle of the day,
the middle of the night
a movie playing through to the twilight
lost in a book, away, I am free.
in my own place, my own peace,
my own safe haven
away from what I've known.
leave me to my own seclusion.
I will surface again when I am
prepared to face the world again
