Lonely Are The Free

Lonely Are The Free

Steve Earle

Lonely are the free
There ain't that many of them they don't walk like you and me
They just tumble in the breeze
Lighter than a feather altogether separately
That's how it's s'posed to be
No matter where they wander
From post to in between,
From here to over yonder,
There's no place for them to lean
Lonely are the free

The silent are the strong
Not so much as a whisper tells you anything is wrong
You've known all along
But you can't help but listen and now the moment's gone
Keeps you hangin' on
Until the silence signalin'
The breakin' of the dawn
Is shattered by the sirens singin'
Sacrificial songs
Silent are the strong

That's all there is to see
A violent shadow passin'
Cross the sun so fleetingly
That if you have to ask
You miss it anyway you see
Lonely are the free
