Not Knowing

“Lost in darkness, missing you already David Bowie …”

Lyrics — Not Knowing …

Where are my friends, I thought I’d see again -
I guess, off dreaming in some other land,
Instead of coming by, to take my hand -
I wonder why?
I’ve been waiting to see — to be set free …
Long ago, I said so long to innocence
Then indifference came my way -
Now I’m trying not to recall at all.

If I only knew, as days pass by,
There’s no place left for you to go -
Not to witness faces on better days,
Then one night, that’s when you know.

No longer are there days 
Bringing a rising light -
And too
There’s no time left to say
I don’t know who was right -
So I’ll turn my back
‘Cos now I know 
There’s nothing’s left
But endless nights
Not knowing.

Perhaps somehow, I’ll come to know,
Why a mind gets clouded — becomes blind
It’s when we fail to see the clues ..
Maybe then, there’ll be words, to set me free.
