Left Alone
XY&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 song "Left Alone" by XY&O speaks about how it feels when one's heart is slowly dying every day and how they struggle to find words to express their pain. The lyrics imply that the person is left with unfulfilled dreams and is unable to fight for themselves anymore. But the singer promises to be there with a bucketful of tears that the person has cried. They don't want to be left alone, neither do they want the person they are singing for, to be in that vulnerable place all by themselves.


The lyrics convey a sense of compassion and empathy from the singer, but also convey a sense of personal pain. They talk about how they don't want to be left alone, and how they have tried to carve their own path, but the person they cared for turned away. They share a memory of a time when they held hands with that person and saw all that they had left behind.


The song is a reminder to reach out to people who may be struggling with their pain, that we all need someone to be with us in our moments of despair. This lyric carries a vital message that sometimes, all we need is a hand to hold, and someone to be with us in our pain.


Line by Line Meaning

When your heart dies
When you're losing your passion and interest in life


A little each day
Bit by bit, you're struggling to cope with the loss


And your mouth's open wide
You can't find any words to communicate what is happening


But you can't find a word to say
You're unable to express your emotions


When you close your eyes
When you try to ignore the world around you


And see a dream that'll never be satisfied
You had aspirations and goals that will never come to fruition


I'll be waiting around
I'll stay around to comfort you


With a bucketful of tears that you've cried
I'll lend a shoulder to cry on while you grieve


I don't wanna be left alone
I don't want to lose you and be left to deal with this on my own


Knocked down, tied up, or on my own
Struggling alone would only leave me vulnerable and helpless


You don't wanna be left alone
You don't want to struggle with your emotions by yourself


When the sun goes down
When it becomes difficult for you to see a bright side


On your desires each night
When you can hardly sleep because of unfulfilled dreams


And you're so hard up
When you're struggling and feeling hopeless


But you can't find the will to fight
When you're too emotionally drained to fight anymore


When it's all so cruel
When life seems to be conspiring against you


And your life disappears right before your eyes
When everything you've worked for disappears quickly and without warning


Baby take my hand
Let me guide you and provide support


You know it's not a thing that I despise
I don't mind being there for you


I tried to make a path, carve my own way
I've attempted to find my own path in life


I opened my mouth and you turned away
When I tried to communicate, you refused to listen


Once when you placed your hand in mine
There was a time when we were closely connected


I caught a glimpse of all I'd left behind
I missed the past and all that we had lost
