about

Alone was written and conceived in May 2008 at my home studio. Lyrically, it's the story of a
troubled relationship. It started with a guitar sample from a pop song, ran through a filter and
then I started laying down drums on it. The first version was very basic – just the drums and the
sample.

I wrote and recorded all three verses and the chorus, and then a few months later, took the
multitracks over to simon's studio. There, we redid the drums from scratch, added piano and guitar
parts, and had a girl named sarah, who simon was working with at the time, record the chorus vocal.
I then redid my own rap vocals.

Over the next 3 years, we worked on-and-off on the song, but it
always felt incomplete. Finally, in mid 2011, we changed the bassline, added new synth parts and
everything fell into place.


“do you enjoy being alone..... do you want me... yes or no”

lyrics

worldwide baby
worldwide do or die baby
yeah
this how we do this
uh

I used to think that you were the one for me
I guess I guess I was just too dumb to see
And even though I know you had fun with me
And I had fun with you, what has it done to me
Used to be that one causing all the fuss
Hanging out on the streets kickin up dust
Now I’m sayin, catch ya later
I guess you could call me a heartbreaker
This was not my intention girl
Just trying to find my place in the world
I really really didn’t wanna send you home
But this one I gotta figure out alone
Never meant to desert you and
I didn’t wanna hurt you but
Part of me thinks that I
Really don’t deserve you girl

Oh boy why did you send me home
Do you enjoy being alone?
How do you make me feel so low?
Do you want me? Yes or no?
Cos if you don’t then tell me so
I can pack my bags and go
I really got to know
Do you wanna be alone?

If I apologise would you believe me?
Are you really sure that you need me?
Or do you just wanna stay in your comfort zone
I can’t front, I’m zoned, I need to be alone
Maybe I’m not the man I thought I was
Looking at your face, you thought as much
Part of you wants me out of your sight
If you found someone better you’d be alright
even though I don’t wanna lose you
Part of you knows that it’s true boo
Just treat it as a lesson learned
And we can both move on, it’s a blessing girl
The silver lining to this dark cloud
I’ll miss you, I love you but this has to stop now
If I don’t see you again
Just know - you’ll always be more than a friend

Oh boy why did you send me home
Do you enjoy being alone?
How do you make me feel so low?
Do you want me? Yes or no?
Cos if you don’t then tell me so
I can pack my bags and go
I really got to know
Do you wanna be alone?

I really didn’t mean to lead you down this road
And now I’m sat here alone writing this song
Words are tears flowing out of my pen
Is this really the end?
When we had something why did I doubt it?
Cos now I don’t know if I can live without it
And so we both suffer
I guess we’re really not good for each other
Need this feeling to pass
But it ain’t gonna pass from the bottom of a glass
All I see are the good times
The bad times so far from my mind
Didn’t realise it then
But for one good time I’d do the bad times again
Cos they made it all worth it
Now I’m sat alone feeling worthless

Oh boy why did you send me home
Do you enjoy being alone?
How do you make me feel so low?
Do you want me? Yes or no?
Cos if you don’t then tell me so
I can pack my bags and go
I really got to know
Do you wanna be alone?

I really gotta know
Do you want me yes or no?
Do you wanna be alone?
Do you wanna be alone?
