Left Alone
Frank McComb Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

He holds her hand while they walk through the park from
dawn til dark.
Praises her publicly, he'll do the sweetest things to
make her happy.
But once they're home it's over 'cause that's when he
gets in his own world.
And it makes her wonder...
Hook

How can two people be inseparable
when one always seems to feel left alone.
She often wonders how can two people be inseparable
when one always seems to feel left alone.


So she gives him gifts before family to watch them all
turn green with envy.
She kisses him like there's no end right in front of
their friends.
But once they're home it's over 'cause she gets on
that phone.
And she leaves him wondering...

(Hook)

Bridge

She knows how it feels to be left alone so she lets
him see how it feels to be left alone. It's not such a
great place to be...left alone. So she lets him see how
it feels to be left alone.

Hook (slightly different)

How can two people be inseparable
when one always seems to feel left alone.




I ask myself how can two people be inseparable
when she always seems to feel left alone...

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Frank McComb's song Left Alone describe the frustration and confusion of two people who seem to be in a close and loving relationship, yet frequently feel disconnected and alone. The first verse describes the man as being devoted to his partner in public, but once they are alone at home, he retreats into his own world, leaving his partner feeling abandoned. Similarly, the woman tries to make her partner happy by showering him with gifts and affection in front of others, but at home, she constantly uses her phone, leaving him feeling neglected.


The chorus poses a rhetorical question, asking how two people can be inseparable when one always feels left alone. This question reflects the underlying tension in the relationship, where the couple appears to be close on the surface, but in reality, their emotional connection is fragile and uncertain. The bridge offers a glimmer of hope that perhaps by experiencing each other's feelings of loneliness, they might be able to build a stronger bond. However, the final repetition of the chorus suggests that there are no easy answers and that the couple's struggle to connect may be ongoing.


Overall, Left Alone is a poignant and relatable commentary on the challenges of maintaining intimacy and connection in a romantic relationship.
