    I love y'all but
    I'm gonna go now
    I need some quiet
    so I can listen to my heart
    must have silence
    so I can sort
    can't have talking
    when I put together parts
    I love y'all but
    I'm gonna go now
    I need a few moments
    to talk to spirit
    to ask for an answer and
    be able to hear it
    to restore my energies so
    I don't get weary
    I love y'all but
    I'm gonna go now
    I must have some space,
    stop the energy drain
    of being in a big world of
    joy, anger and pain
    I must hold you off so
    I can stay sane

    I'll be back when I
    restore what I lack
    toughen and fortify,
    water the well that is dry
    my strength will return
    like the sunrise
    this is the only way
    I can live life
