about

There are four ways to be alone together.

1) The two of you are with each other and no one else is there ("I think we're alone now / there doesn't seem to be anyone around").

2) The two of you are separate from the rest of the world, more connected to each other than you are individually to the rest.

3) The two of you are separate from each other, and alone, but thinking about each other. Even though you're alone, you're together.

4) Even though you are together with the other person, you still feel alone.

The first one is covered, so I wrote a song about the other three.

lyrics

We are alone together

Woke up in mourning
Found out I'd been married
Suddenly unable to untether
Sat at its table
Studied its face
Got up and wandered around the learn the layout of the place

We are alone together

The last thing that I wanted
Was to go chasing my regret around
So I tethered it to my drunkenness
And tied another one on

We are alone together

There is no tragedy to unite us
Just those little deaths that we face when we meet
And get back on our feet
There is one word I would use to describe us
One thing we can hold to remind us

We are alone together
