I Alone
Live Lyrics


It's easier not to be wise
And measure these things by your brains
I sank into Eden with you
Alone in the church by and by
I'll read to you here, save your eyes
You'll need them, your boat is at sea
Your anchor is up, you've been swept away
And the greatest of teachers won't hesitate
To leave you there, by yourself, chained to fate
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this!
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you

It's easier not to be great
And measure these things by your eyes
We long to be here by his resolve
Alone in the church by and by
To cradle the baby in space
And leave you there by yourself chained to fate

I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this!
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you

I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you

Oh, now, we took it back too far
Only love can save us now
All these riddles that you burn
All come runnin' back to you
All these rhythms that you hide
Only love can save us now
All these riddles that you burn yeah, yeah, yeah

I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this!
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you

I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
It's easier not to be wise
And measure these things
By your brains
I sank into Eden with you
Alone in the church by and by
I'll read to you here,
Save your eyes
You'll need them,
Your boat is at sea
Your anchor is up,
You've been swept away
And the greatest of teachers won't hesitate
To leave you there by yourself,
Chained to fate
Yeah

[Chorus]
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you

[Verse 2]
It's easier not to be great
And measure these things
By your eyes
We long to be here by his resolve
Alone in the church by and by
To cradle the baby in space
And leave you there by yourself
Chained to fate,
Yeah

[Chorus]
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Yeah
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Yeah

[Bridge]
Oh, now, we took it back too far
Only love can save us now
All these riddles that you burn
All come running back to you
All these rhythms that you hide
Only love can save us now
All these riddles that you burn
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Fear is not the end of this
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Yeah
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you
Ah
I alone love you
I alone tempt you
I alone love you



The Coup

Though I'm black, one of the things I love about music like this and from this era is that the artists look like people just doing music they love. Popular artists for the last decade and a half look the same, sound the same, move the same, sing about the same themes in the same way, and look exactly like the product of a marketing machine designed to produce specimens who look like 22-year-old stereotypes of whatever it is they are -- and keep them looking and sounding that way forever.


That's not to say that great music doesn't exist today. It ABSOLUTELY does. Great music and great artists. But you have to go looking for it. You have to find it in the scene transition music in shows like Insecure. It's not what inundates you. It's not what usually headlines the festivals and award shows and makes guest appearances on television.


And the weird thing is, some of these artists do collaborations with those lesser-known artists and groups, and when they do it can be a whole other thing. They sing different. Sound different. They look different if they appear in a video for it. And it's great.


Too much money. Too few producers. Too many "small" labels that are actually just part of a giant conglomerate (just like web sites).

I remember when Beavis and Butthead watched this video and it was hilarious. They talked about how the drummer left his equipment in the van and they told him he's just going to have to wander around the video like a butt munch. Classic.
