Life of a single

Baggs 1977 (Sydney)



To be happy and alone is a peace that is bliss
Ignorance and annoyance from drama I won't miss
Not worried to speak or do as I please
Freedom of life puts my mind at ease
Do I miss the connection from someone's soul
I can't honestly answer that I've never felt whole
I'd rather be alone than waste someone's time
Playing with someone's heart should be a capital crime
Find peace within yourself before searching in others
Don't ever play with the heart of someone's brother's, sister's or mother's
