​Loneliness

This song is by Trust and appears on the album Savage (1981).

Now I know with certainty what solitude can be
Step by step, in the dark, I found my way
Moved ahead, unaware, no idea of the power
Step by step, in the dark, moved ahead, unaware
No idea of your power
If I became the hero with an unpainted face
If I became a superstar
If you became the hero with the unpainted face
You would be a superstar
I would reflect on all these wasted days
Unashamed, never wanting to wipe them away
You'd go through all the wasted days
Never wanting to erase

Because you know with certainty
What loneliness can be
The faded image of which you're proud
Follows you around
And I'm lost in reflections
Tell me what happened to you
Tell me what happened to you

Maybe tomorrow I won't be a sex symbol
Maybe I'll be just anyone
If tomorrow you weren't a sex symbol
You'd be just anyone
Never occurs to look for an excuse
No fantasies, films that twist the truth
No accounts, no excuse, no pretending with lies
Or twisting the truth
I'll grow taller than the ones who stay small
If one day I become someone who I was
If one day I become someone who I was
Someone who I was

Because you know with certainty
What loneliness can be
The faded image of which you're proud
Follows you around
And I'm lost in reflections
Tell me what happened to you
Tell me what happened to you

I'll laugh at their lives the way they laughed at mine
When I was their puppet, life and soul of the party
When I lived on dope, I was bored into need
The women were the best, all the best, all the best
Turned around in the void and held out my arms
Idles eyes before me, smiling with charm

Now I know with certainty
Loneliness surrounding me
Of faded images, I'm too proud
They follow me around
I'm lost in reflection
What have I become?
I, too, had my idols
They played the part of symbols
And they knew with certainty
What loneliness can be
