"You're Not Alone" as written by Marv Green and Kim Carnes....
It's just like him
To wander off in the evergreen park
Slowly searching
For any sign of the ones he used to love

He says he's got nothing left to live for
(He says he's got nothing left)
And this time I think you'll know

You're not alone, there is more to this
I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

She's just like him
Spoiled rotten confused by the life she's been fed
And she's searching for no one (but herself)
Her eyes turn to green
And she seems to be happy that she is her
And this time I think you'll know

You're not alone, there is more to this
I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

You're not alone, there is more to this
I know
You can make it out

(There is more to life)

We're not alone
There is more to this
I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell
(so tell me)

You're not alone,
There is more to this
I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell (live to tell)

You're not alone,
There is more to this
I know
You can make it out
You will live to tell

You were not alone
You're not
You're not
Alone

    General Commentbasically what the song is saying that,
    whatever youre goin thru, finding yourself, overcoming suicidal thoughts, lookin for someone, w.e, its been done before and there are lots of other people who are goin or went thru the same thing. what youre goin thru is not impossible and can be done.

    General CommentYou know, in highschool I used to be really into emo music, then I went to college and completely got out of it. But the thing is, sometimes I play my emo music, and songs like these always help me out when I am in a bad mood.

    I think its because sometimes when you are going through a bad situation, a lot of times your friends tell you, oh that sucks, or even give you advice. But what you really want them to tell you is, your not alone, you can make it out, have courage, I am there with you. And when you dont have people tell you that, that is when you have bad thoughts. I just think that this song does that really well, telling us the things that we not so want, but NEED to hear... That we aren't alone, and that we can strive out of this terrible situation.

    Thanks Saosin.

    General CommentI love this song. It really hits hard. This has definately helped me through some tough times and it still is. Anytime I'm feeling crappy, I just sit alone in my room in the dark and cry to this song. Sounds lame, I know.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about two people in separate situations that both feel like no one shares their feelings. The boy has probably lost his family or close friends when he says wander off in the evergreen park. Slowly searching. For any sign of the ones he used to love". This could very wellbe a graveyard or something of the sort. The chorus tells him that others feel the same way and can deal with it so he can too. The girl is over protected by her parents who don't want to expose her to the rest of the world, but that stops her from finding herself. She is jealous of everyone else because "Her eyes turn to green" green equalling jealousy. The "you will live to tell" means that they will not commit suicide over their problems and live to tell about how they realized that they weren't alone

    General CommentThis song has a very broad message about hope, but there is perhaps a deeper meaning about where people choose to derive happiness. There are two distinct characters; a male and a female. The first character is in search of something because he has nothing, or he is searching to regain what he once had.

    In contrast, the female character finds herself discontent with her privileged existence. She realizes that she is tired of living for herself. She is alone because of her greed ('her eyes turn to green'-'green' being a classic symbol for envy, greed and sickness). Both characters alone.

    The first character would find comfort in understanding that he is not alone in his plot in life, while the second character's problems would be remedied if she realized that she wasn't the only person on earth.

    Two characters, two very different sides of the same loneliness.

    General CommentWhen i was going through a hard time, i wish i knew about this song. The meaning is pretty obvious. When i was suicidal i thought i was alone, and that no one thought the same way i did. But i guess i was wrong. Just like the song says, "you're not alone". <3

    General CommentI enjoy this song about 10x more than the others seeing how the others are either early-release or revamped versions of other songs, or bits of other songs were used to make a certain song.

    But this song, completely new. Sadly it doesnt sound so much like Saosin anymore. Hopefully Beau and Justin will change that with the next LP/EP.

    General CommentIt really doesn't sound like Saosin, indeed, but it's sitll a really great song, nonetheless. They've never performed this song live before, and I'm fortunate to witness the very first time they performed it live on their official album release show. It was great. Keep it up, Saosin. Love and support, you're my favorite band.
