"Go It Alone" as written by and Jason Isbell....
Are you lonely tonight?
Are you out on the road?
I'm headed home to go it alone again.
Are you dreaming out loud?
Scared of the crowds?
I'm headed home to go it alone again.

It's realizing just how close you've come to death.
and rearranging accordingly.
I'm realizing what I've lost and what I've left
and taking it home to go it alone again.

Find me a place
With salt on the roads
I'll do what I'm told, and buy what I'm sold again.
She was enough
but that was never enough.
The wound that won't heal
is pain I can't feel again.

In real life these things don't happen much at all.
Too bad we all live the dream.
I'm realizing just how far I had to fall
and taking it home to go it alone again.

In real life these things don't happen much at all.
Too bad we all live the dream.
I'm realizing just how far I had to fall
and taking it home to go it alone again.

I'm taking it home to go it alone again.
Taking it home to go it alone again.

    General CommentI really like this song. I interpret taking it home as getting back to that place I used to be. The person I used to be. I can relate to a lot of the lyrics but the way they are written is ambiguous enough. Jason Isbell is a bad mofo.

    General CommentExcept salt on the road...cold is muy dificil I remember sledding in Iowa on a frozen street. It was fun but it was so fucking cold. One of the locals said who would want to live here. And I was thinking fuck yeah. But my dad's a nice guy and he played it off.
