Left Alone
Squad Five*o Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

When your heart dies
A little each day
And your mouth's open wide
But you can't find a word to say
When you close your eyes
And see a dream that'll never be satisfied
I'll be waiting around
With a bucketful of tears that you've cried

I don't wanna be left a lone
Knocked down, tied up, or on my own
You don't wanna be left alone
Knocked down, tied up, or on your own

when the sun goes down
On your desires each night
And you're so hard up
But you can't find the will to fight
When it's all so cruel
And your life disappears right before your eyes
Baby take my hand
You know it's not a thing that I despise

I tried to make a path, carve my own way
I opened my mouth and you truned away




Once when you placed your hand in mine
I caught a glimpse of all I'd left behind

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Squad Five-O's song Left Alone describe the loneliness and despair that one can feel when their heart is broken and they are unable to express themselves. The opening lines "When your heart dies, a little each day, and your mouth's open wide but you can't find a word to say" suggest that the person is struggling to cope with their emotions and cannot communicate their feelings to others. The following lines "When you close your eyes and see a dream that'll never be satisfied, I'll be waiting around with a bucketful of tears that you've cried" imply that the person they are addressing has been hurt and that they are willing to be there for them.


The chorus of the song, "I don't wanna be left alone, knocked down, tied up, or on my own, you don't wanna be left alone, knocked down, tied up, or on your own" highlights the importance of companionship and support when going through difficult times. It seems that the person singing the song is trying to convince the other person that they need each other and that together they can overcome their struggles.


The final verse of the song suggests that the person singing is reflecting on their own past mistakes and regrets. "I tried to make a path, carve my own way, I opened my mouth and you turned away. Once when you placed your hand in mine, I caught a glimpse of all I'd left behind" implies that the person singing may have pushed others away in the past and is now aware of the consequences of doing so.
