People Alone

Album: The Competition Soundtrack (1980)
  • Take me alone
    I don't care where you have come
    And I don't have to know
    Exactly where you're going
    If you leave me behind
    Then everything on your mind
    Will turn to pictures of the world
    We might have been

    People alone may go very fast
    But maybe not so far
    Playing alone is still solitaire
    Remember
    People alone may reach for a love
    But only half as well
    People alone may seem satisfied
    How can they tell ?

    If we're crossing the line
    Where there's no yours and no mine
    We'll find it easy to see
    People should be together

    People alone may go very fast
    But maybe not so far
    Playing alone is still solitaire
    Remember
    People alone may reach for a love
    But only half as well
    People alone may seem satisfied
    How can they tell ?

    Take me along
    Let's not be people alone
    I'm on your mind
    So please don't leave me behind
    Crossing the line
    Where there's no yours and no mine
