I was on the ropes when you needed my hands.
I was on the dope when you needed me down.
I was on the hip when you needed my heart.
I was on the hopes that you needed me now.

And I was on the roof and you were the stars.
I was on your lips; you were in my heart.
I was on the first boat out of this town.
You were on the front porch, waving me out.

I was on the ropes when you needed me
And I was on the dope when you needed to know.
I was on the cuff when you needed my sleeve.
I was on the roots when you needed to grow.

More than ever, I can see into the back of my mind
And I find me alone,
Me alone,
Me alone,
Baby.
Be alone,
Be alone,
Be alone,
Baby.

More than ever, I can see into the back of my mind.
Baby, I find
Me alone,
Me alone,
Me alone.

And I was on the moon in the back of my van.
We were in the bedroom, talking on old tin cans.

And we'll be alone,
Be alone,
Be alone,
Baby.
