Chromatics - I Want To Be Alone Lyrics

I want to be alone
I need to touch each stone
Face the grave that I have grown
I want to be

Before all the days are gone
And darker walls are bent and torn
To pass the time of those who mourn
I want to be

Rivers that run anywhere
Are in my hand and just up the stair
Past the eyes of those who care
Who can never be

Changes that were not meant to be
Tow the hours of my memory
Sing a song of love to me
To say you must never
Never be alone
The tears of a silent rain
Seek shelter on my broken pain
And run away
But I remain
To speak the words
That sing
Of alone

I want to be alone
I need to touch each stone
Face the grave that I have grown
I want to be

  89. Marcin Rogalski

    Dear Chromatics. Thank you for a new song and a new poem of mine:

    New Track

    His flowers are
    records. Untouched
    by ritual opening,
    covered with film.

    I don't listen to them.
    I will not give back,
    I won't sell
    I won't refund to labels.

    I keep them in a deposit of silence.

    A new song he didn't send me

    "I Want To Be Alone
    I Need To Touch Each Stone
    Face The Grave That I Have Grown
    I Want To Be

    Beautifully sad.
    I loved it in a poem.

    But I do not tell
    my real reaction
    until we meet again.

  90. number3seven

    She's my favorite Celtic Woman singer.

    Piotr Niedzwiecki

    Sounds more like Scandinavian/Baltic aesthetic. Beautiful.

  91. Laura Lee Lovely

    Beautiful <3333

  92. ken bibi

    This needs to be in Kill Bill 3 OST...

  93. martianmatt82

    Thank you

    Oh my. What a treat for me today. Multiple treats. Not only did I get to share the wonderfulness that was on the stories today. And I must tell you how many people are connecting with your music through me and my other friends. I've told you already how you've helped me and the better thing to do than just enjoy your music is to share it. I often share it using the audio button on Instagram in the DMs. It seems to sound better when you filter it through but anyway. I also got a number of Glorious screenshots from the video you all provided on Instagram. I got on YouTube to get the link for shadow for a new friend of mine I met in Nepal through Instagram. This one I will allow her to find on her own. Thank you again for all did you guys do. You helped me to be a better father and whatever kind of being I am. My children also love your music as I've told you already but I thought it'd be nice to say again. You guys are really making this existence much better for many people. Thank you for all your kind attention and also for your music and your art and your creativity. I really feel special connection with music and you guys have really made it much more magical that I ever thought. And I've always had a wild imagination thanks to bands like the doors and individuals like Bob Marley and JRR Tolkien. You guys have have shot right up my list of favorite bands to the very top. just know that not only have I found a home and you all with your music your music and you all have found a home within me. well I'm going to get the link for shadow and I'm going to share it with my new friend. Peace and love to you all.

    Акустические гитары, скользящие по струнам пальцы, чистый звук записи, мои уши наслаждаются мурашками по коже :-) Acoustic guitar, sliding the strings with fingers, clear audio recordings, my ears are enjoying the goosebumps :-)

  96. Anton Doiron

    A good song with a mix of very creative images. Nice!

  97. Mark De Mesa

    Song of my life.
