"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 on to one another hands
Trying to get away into the night 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 doin'
'Cause what would they say
If they ever knew
And so we're

Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
Trying to get away into the night 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

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

Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
Trying to get away into the night 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

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

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

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

    General CommentThis is one of the greatest songs of the 80's. Tiffany was the first great female teenage singer, and I think this really helped pave the way for future teen sensations, such as Britney Spears, Cristina Aguilera, and Taylor Swift.

    Also, this is one of the most successful covers of an original song ever. It's great that a teenager could bring a 60's hit back to life, and put a modern spin on it. This is a song that is not out of date nor will it be, because of the theme.

    My interpretation of the song is that it is about a situation many of us find ourselves in, in our teenage years. Underage sex is still somewhat a shady topic. And that is definitely what this song is talking about. I compare this perhaps to Romeo and Juliet. Maybe the couple in the song aren't supposed to be together, as far as family pressures. However, when love feel right, you have to get away from it all and take your chances together.
