"I Think We're Alone Now" as written by and Ritchie Cordell....
Children behave,
That's what they say when we're together.
And Watch how you play,
They don't understand, And so we're

Running just as fast as we can,
Holding onto one another's hand
Trying to get away into the night.
And then I put my arms around you,
And you tumbled to the ground
And then I say

I think we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of your heart is the only sound.

Look at the way,
I gotta hide what I'm doin'.
'Cause what would they say,
If they ever knew, and so we're,

Running just as fast as we can,
Holding onto one another's hand
Trying to get away into the night.
And then I put my arms around you,
And you tumbled to the ground
And then I say

I think we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of your heart is the only sound.
I think we're alone now, (alone now)
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now, (alone now)
The beating of your heart is the only sound.

Running just as fast as we can,
Holding onto one another's hand
Trying to get away into the night.
And then I put my arms around you,
And you tumbled to the ground
And then I say

I think we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of your heart is the only sound.
I think we're alone now,
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now,
The beating of your heart is the only sound.
I think we're alone now, (alone now)
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now, (alone now)
The beating of your heart is the only sound.

    General CommentAm I the only one who noticed that they changed some words and made it sound kind of like a song about a zombie song or one about killing someone?

    They don't say:
    "And then you put your arms around me
    And we tumble to the ground
    And then you say

    I think we're alone now
    There doesn't seem to be anyone around
    I think we're alone now
    The beating of our hearts
    is the only sound

    Look at the way
    We gotta hide what we're doing"

    They say:
    "And then *I* put *my* arms around *you*
    And *you* tumble to the ground
    And then *I* say

    I think we're alone now
    There doesn't seem to be anyone around
    I think we're alone now
    The beating of *your* heart
    is the only sound

    Look at the way
    *I* gotta hide what *I'm* doing"

    The subtle changes in lyrics can change the meaning quite a bit, if you think about it.

    Only the other person tumbles to the ground, apparently the singer remains standing. Also, only the other person's heart is beating, because the singer states very clearly that the other person's heartbeat is the only sound, and if the singer's heart isn't also making a sound, then it isn't beating. Only the singer is doing something worth hiding, it isn't mutual. I'm surprised no one noticed the changes...

    General Commentits not even Tiffany's original song.
    although it is a cover of her version of the song,
    i think TBM did a pretty good job with it.
