lyrics

VERSE
I must seem introverted, solitary.
Entering that room, never coming out for days.
A distant memory to my friends and family.
Disheartening to the most patient of these.

CHORUS
I know I’m not an Island.
And my intention is not to distress.
Please know I love each and every one of you.

VERSE
My self-determination might seem daunting.
But I try to be approachable.
I’m just so goal oriented, earnest, driven.
My every fiber focused on the next task.

CHORUS
I know I’m not an Island.
And my intention is not to distress.
Please know I love each and every one of you.

BRIDGE
You have to understand why I am the way I am.
I created these hobbies to occupy myself while everyone else was away.
So I wouldn’t die of boredom.
And now I’m a slave to this cyclical irony.
These isolated distractions are my social bridle.

EXTENDED CHORUS
I know I’m not an Island.
And my intention is not to distress.
Please know I love each and every one of you.
Even if I don’t always express that sentiment.
After all, I can’t really help who I am, what makes me tick.

OUTRO
But the older I get, the wiser I get.
The more I realize that I need you.
I need you, I need all of you.
Because I can’t do this alone.
