"Alone, Together" as written by and Howard/schwartz Dietz....
No choice now, it's too late
Let him go, he gave up
I gave up
Lisa says, "Take time for me"
Dropping him down to his knees
Ah, chest down

Take me away
See I've got to explain
Things, they have changed
In such a permanent way
Life seems unreal
Can we go back to your place?
Oh, "You drink too much"
Makes me drink just the same

People tried, felt so right
Giving themselves good advice
Looking down sometimes felt nice

He knows it's justified to kill to survive
He then in dollars makes more dead than alive
Let's suck more blood, let's run three hours a day
The world is over but I don't care 'cause

I am with you
Now I've got to explain
Things, they have changed
In such a permanent way
Life seems unreal
Can we go back to your place?
"You drink too much"
Makes me drink just the same

The first time, it happened too fast
The second time, I thought it would last

We all like it a little different

    General CommentTo me this song sounds like it's about at couple that are broken up, and their first time together was good but for some reason didn't click, so they eventually break up. Then get back together and even though they he is in love something doesn't feel right and the relationship ends. "the first time, it happened too fast. The second time, I thought it would last."

    General CommentThese lyrics are rather a collage of some thoughts than something with linear meaning. Agree with the comment below.

    General Commentfirst of all. why would you want them to be sober? its rock n roll. that's what rock n roll is. sex and drugs. second off. why would tight pants make him gay? again... it's rock n roll. would you rather him be wearing baggy cargo pants or something?
