Left Alone
Houses Lyrics

LEFT ALONE

It aint you,
Or anybody else's business,
What I do.
I just want to be left alone.

I wake up dreaming everyday.
It's just like living, but it doesn't feel the same
Cause the sky up above me starts
Falling down on me,
Like a shovel full of graveyard dirt.

But I'd still sell my soul,
For a little bit of money
And some self control.

Cause it would feel so good to let go
And get back in the rhythm again.

It aint you,
Or anybody else's business,
What I do.
I just want to be left alone.

To move on my own.

So you can wash it all away,
As the tides begin to change.
Cause all our sins might be forgiven anyway.

But I'd still sell my soul,
For a little bit of money
And some self control.

Cause it would feel so good to let go
And get back in the rhythm again.

It aint you,
or anybody else's business,
What I do.




I just want to be left alone.

The lyrics of Houses's song "Left Alone" convey a sense of longing for solitude and the desire to escape from the pressures and judgment of others. The singer expresses a yearning to be left to their own devices, emphasizing that their actions are nobody else's concern.


The song begins with the assertion that what the singer does is not the business of others, highlighting a desire for privacy and autonomy. They simply want to be left alone without interference or judgment. However, the following lines reveal a deeper emotional struggle. The singer describes waking up dreaming every day, suggesting a certain disconnect from reality. Despite the act of living, they express a sentiment that it doesn't feel the same. This emotional dissonance is compared to the sky falling down on them, evoking a sense of heavy burden and overwhelming negativity.


Within this emotional turmoil, the singer admits that they would relinquish their soul for a little bit of money and some self-control. This desire for both material comfort and internal stability reflects a longing for escape and relief. They believe that letting go and getting back into the rhythm of life again would bring a sense of euphoria and contentment.


The repetition of the line "It ain't you or anybody else's business, what I do" serves as a reaffirmation of the singer's yearning for autonomy and privacy. They want to move on their own, free from the expectations and judgments of others. The lyrics conclude with the idea that all sins may be forgiven, suggesting that the singer seeks redemption and a fresh start.


Overall, "Left Alone" explores the complex emotions of desiring solitude, struggling with inner demons, and seeking liberation from external burdens and expectations.

It aint you,
It's not about you,


Or anybody else's business,
Or anyone else's concern,


What I do.
What I choose to do.


I just want to be left alone.
I simply desire solitude.


I wake up dreaming everyday.
Every day I wake up with dreams in my mind.


It's just like living, but it doesn't feel the same
But it feels different from reality.


Cause the sky up above me starts
Because the sky that hovers over me begins


Falling down on me,
To collapse upon me,


Like a shovel full of graveyard dirt.
Similar to the weight of soil in a graveyard.


But I'd still sell my soul,
Nevertheless, I would sacrifice my soul,


For a little bit of money
In exchange for a small sum of money


And some self control.
And regain control over myself.


Cause it would feel so good to let go
Because it would bring immense pleasure to release everything


And get back in the rhythm again.
And return to being in sync with life.


To move on my own.
To progress independently.


So you can wash it all away,
Allowing you to wash away all of it


As the tides begin to change.
As the currents of life start to shift.


Cause all our sins might be forgiven anyway.
Because perhaps all our wrongdoings will be pardoned regardless.


It aint you,
It's not about you,


or anybody else's business,
Or anyone else's concern,


What I do.
What I choose to do.


I just want to be left alone.
I simply desire solitude.

Bruh that pun, puns make me cringe.

I think this is not only an underated Houses song, it's just an underated song in general. This needs to be more popular

Fast Talk has been one of my favorite songs for a while. For some reason I ignored the rest of this EP for the longest time. Glad I finally listened all the way through. Incredibly underrated, an amazing amalgamation of different vibes, and they all BUMP. Also, every song sounds just that much better when you're high off your ass, just, btw...

Joshua Ledford
