Still Sound
Toro Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

It's hard where you're living
Adding weight to make it balanced
Saying "it could be too much"
But he's clasping to his tie

There was a finer life when I was with my friends
And I could always see my family
That's what I still want now
Even if I'm here and I know they won't be waiting

'Cause I don't want to be alone
No I don't want to be here alone

While you're there give back a little more
The return could make you notice
That I'm thinking of a moment
And know it's still sound

There was a finer life when you were with us here
And we knew there was a next time
That's what I still want now
Even if I'm here and I think that you won't be waiting

'Cause I don't want to be alone

It's hard where you're living
It's hard where you're living
It's hard where you're living





And I don't want to be here alone
No, I don't want to be here alone

The final lines of the song repeat the sentiment of not wanting to be alone, emphasizing the theme of loneliness that runs throughout the song.
