Lyrics

A Life Less Lonely (Music & Lyrics by Steve Laurie: 6/26/04)

Leaving the door just partially open; seizing a chance to escape
Leaving behind a world disillusioned; carved in disappointment
Hitting the road and leaving alone, he seeks out a place to go
No expectations, no destination, walking the open road

To a life less lonely, to a life less lonely

She rides the bus now every morning, full of vacant stares and doubt
Hoping a stranger might say ‘good morning’; a simple word or two would help
But silence is normal in smaller spaces when people are filled with doubt
Open the door, she gets off alone, walking the cobblestone road

To a life less lonely, to a life less lonely

No one knew he’d gone, No one knew he’d gone   ...
No one knew she’d gone, No one knew she’d gone ...
No one knew they’d gone, No one knew they’d gone ...

Out on the highway, empty and open, strangers somehow meet
Words are not spoken, a look is all knowing, a chance two hearts can keep
Gentle in gesture, reaching towards her, two hands now clasp complete
Walking along now, two hands a holding, hopeful and on their way

To a life less lonely, to a life less lonely, to a life less lonely
