Forty Days

I freaked her out
I know I did
I spoke too clearly and I meant what I said

I freaked her out
I tried not to
I really should seek solitude

Days alone would do me good
Days and days of solitude

I know now why he walked away
I know what he saw that day

He freaked them out
He tried not to

He spoke so clearly and so true

He could do with time alone
Days and days with no-one home

For forty days no-body would not get it
and for forty days he would not panic

I freaked her out
I know I did
I should have stayed alone instead

People make me feel afraid
I can,t remember what I,ve said

I really should seek solitude
Days and days would do me good

And for forty days no-body would not get it
And for forty days I would not panic

Forty days of no fear

I know now why he walked away
I know what he saw that day

Quiet desperation comes
The scariness of crowded rooms

He could do with time alone
Away away from everyone

Forty days of no fear
Forty days of no panic
