  • Lyrics
  • "Alone" is a newly written song recorded for Toto's 40 Trips Around the Sun greatest hits album. The song was penned by Toto members David Paich, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Joseph Williams.

    "We wrote four brand new songs from scratch, top to bottom, just the four of us sitting in a room," Lukather told Billboard magazine. "We wrote everything, recorded everything, played everything together."

    "('Alone') is a real up, positive thing even though the song is called 'Alone'," he added. "It's about growing old and stuff like that, but it's really energetic and, I think, an interesting take on it."
