You And I Alone – by JMSkwARED

By:

“You And I Alone” … where micro and macro alienation converge.

LYRICS

Cars moved like cattle on a trail
And the sun wore a veil of grey
Smoke rose in a winding tail
To some harbour in blue far away

We made our way to the station
Speechless and worn from the city
Seeking sleep and salvation
Secretly nursing self-pity

Are you and I alone?
Are you and I in love?
Are you and I alone?
Are you and I in love?

Our love was a truth forbidden
And hidden till it was rotten
On tracks we felt a pounding rhythm
A drum for a soldier forgotten

The winds howled just like anger
And the rains poured just like tears
The train pushed on like pride in danger
Of seeing what it fears

Are you and I alone?
Are you and I in love?
Are you and I alone?
Are you and I in love?

By the moon another lonely city
Grows from the seed of a lonely town
It beats with a heart that has no pity
And breathes with a breath of brown

It’s there the strangers roam
Some looking, some running to the storm
Some waiting for grace
Some finding a home
Where lovers and angels mourn

Are you and I alone?
Are you and I in love?
Are you and I alone?
Are you and I in love?
