In an old apartment waiting for the walls to move
Praying that someone, hoping that no one intrudes
Living like an actor, feeling like a poet bruised
But no man is an island

Lay down your robe, leper or rogue
Keep yourself open here
Don't let the cold close to your soul
Lonely tonight

Passing like a shadow, never letting anyone see
And maybe I'm biased but I don't think
You know the first thing about me
But no man is an island

Lay down your robe, leper or rogue
Keep yourself open here
Don't let the cold close to your soul
No one is free, come light

And heavier stones think to themselves
That they're alone here
But everyone grieves and everyone feels
Lonely tonight

Don't tell me you know
When I know you don't
Don't tell me you know
When you know you don't

Lay down your robe, leper or rogue
Keep yourself open here
Don't let the cold close to your soul
No one is free, come light

And heavier stones think to themselves
That they're alone here
But everyone grieves and everyone feels
Lonely tonight

But no man is an island
