My ticket home has left me stranded
My presence, of late, has been un-commanded
My usual charm and sophistication is gone
I can no longer be blamed accordingly
My silhouette no longer softened
On walks all alone no longer often
I used to be moved by a romantic nature but itís gone
I can no longer be held responsible

Iím finding it easy to be cold and effective
No effort involved if Iím unreflective
Who knows what I might do
I wish that I knew

It seems that I have lost my senses
Teetering on senseless fences
My feelings of ease and graceful balance are gone
I can no longer be blamed accordingly

Donít ask me why
I know I can no longer be
Donít ask me why 
I know I can no longer be
Donít ask me why
I can no longer be held responsible

My timeliness has become outdated
My innocence has become frustrated
I need to be free of my expensive distractions Ďtill theyíre gone
I can no longer be held responsible
