Left Alone
Gravel Kings Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm left alone,
Outside the walls that make up what you are
You're such a ghost,
Within your name and in your place of time
I've seen you dancing
Along the path that bites into my hands
You see me out here,
Looking for the fire to call my home
My way, my reason to stay
At your side in a long road

I'm left alone,
To reconstruct my self-destructive plans
The fear is close and only leads to what I fear the most
I've seen you dancing
Above the lights that burn into my skin
You see me out here,
Looking for the fire to call my home
My way, my reason to stay
At your time and long road

And while the night it zones behind the trees
It's time to leave,
I know it's sad, we'll meet again
But this has to be the best that we've been

I'm left alone,
Outside the walls that make up what you are




You're such a ghost,
Within your name and in your place of time

Overall Meaning

The song "Left Alone" by Gravel Kings is a poignant and emotional reflection on feeling isolated and disconnected from someone who was once close. The lyrics describe the singer's sense of loneliness and abandonment, as they are "left alone" outside the "walls" that define the other person's identity. The use of the word "ghost" in reference to the other person suggests that they may be gone or unreachable, and that the singer is left to navigate their own path alone.


The singer has seen the other person "dancing" and seems to want to be at their side on the "long road" of life, but feels that they must "reconstruct" their own "self-destructive plans" to do so. The fear that accompanies this process is ever-present and threatens to lead the singer down a path that they fear the most. Despite this, they remain determined to find their "way" and their "reason to stay" with the other person, whatever it takes.


The final stanza suggests a bittersweet farewell to the other person, as the singer prepares to "leave" and acknowledges that they may not see each other again for some time. However, they also express a sense of closure and acceptance, as they recognize that this parting is "the best that we've been."


Overall, "Left Alone" is a deeply emotive and introspective song that explores themes of loneliness, fear, and the struggle to find meaning and connection in the face of adversity.
