I long for a little solitude

From this mad mad world

To have the time to reflect

Time to be on my own

I yearn for a little silence

Just to sit and to be still

In a world that is so frantic

From which we need to escape 

Silence is a premium

We need time to meditate

To think of what has been

To sit and contemplate

What the future is going to be

Time to make decisions

That will determine your fate
