When You Hear This Song

The question is not:

Do you think what I think?
Do you see what I see?
Do you know what I know?
Do you like what I like?
Do you believe what I believe?

The question is:

When you hear this song, do you feel what I feel?

And my fear is that the answer is always no. That is what I mean by loneliness.
