Join Me
© 2000, Roy Stucky

I feel so full I'd like to shout
But the impulse raises clouds of doubt.
This isolation's far too much
But tonight I'll find no loving touch.

Join me.
Coin me a phrase -
Talk me through this malaise.
Join me.
Purloin me a soul -
So I can be whole.
Join me.
Won't you please join me?

I don't know just how I should act
So I grope through fog and pray for contact.
I don't know just what I should say
To call the wind to blow this mist away.

Join me.
Coin me a phrase -
Talk me through this malaise.
Join me.
Purloin me a soul -
So I can be whole.
Join me.
Won't you please join me?

In case my echo weakly drowns
I think I'll keep my volume down.
I dread to risk the slightest sound.
One word can prove no soul's around.

Can a brave man rise to speak?
Does my need reveal I'm weak?
Do I live inside a freak?
Am I lost because I seek?

Join me.
Coin me a phrase -
Talk me through this malaise.
Join me.
Purloin me a soul -
So I can be whole.
Join me.
Won't you please join me?

My soul's weary of the heights I've flown.
I can't endure this life alone.
