Warren Zevon Splendid Isolation Lyrics

Last updated: 02/28/2013 10:33:57 AM

Written by Warren Zevon 1989 Zevon Music BMI

I want to live alone in the desert
I want to be like Georgia O'Keefe
I want to live on the Upper East Side
And never go down in the street

Splendid Isolation
I don't need no one
Splendid Isolation

Michael Jackson in Disneyland
Don't have to share it with nobody else
Lock the gates, Goofy, take my hand
And lead me through the World of Self

Splendid Isolation
I don't need no one
Splendid Isolation

Don't want to wake up with no one beside me
Don't want to take up with nobody new
Don't want nobody coming by without calling first
Don't want nothing to do with you

I'm putting tinfoil up on the windows
Lying down in the dark to dream
I don't want to see their faces
I don't want to hear them scream

Splendid Isolation
I don't need no one
Splendid Isolation

Splendid Isolation
I don't need no one
Splendid Isolation

Splendid Tune | Reviewer: Rick | 12/10/2007

One of many brilliant songs by Warren Zevon. "Splendid Isolation " was a term coined for British foreign policy of the late 1800's. The biting social commentary on the idosynchracies, narcissism, and social phobias of some the rich and famous; both dark (I'm putting tinfoil up on the windows..I don't want to hear their screams) and humorous ( come on Goofy, take my hand ) at the same time - one of this great songsmith's signatures. The music is superb as well, worthy of Dylan or Springsteen. Zevon is recognized by his peers as being a superb
talent, collaborating with The Eagles, Dylan, Springsteen, David Gilmore, Linda Ronstadt, Chick Corea, Neil Young, David Crosby, Everly Bros. and an endless list of others from all genres.
