Concrete Blonde - And I Fell Back Alone Lyrics




We walk with each other as we leave the room
You don't have to tell me that it's over
Whoever you were then I never really knew
And you got no need to know me now

Can't see the bottom from the top
Don't see the edge before you drop
And I fell back alone
And I fell back alone
And I fell....

And stop making all the right moves
Just to keep the walls from coming up
I can't get over this at all
I'm in some different place
Stranger's pictures on my walls
I drew them yesterday
I never thought I'd have a turn at all

You can't see the bottom from the top
You don't see the edge before you drop
And I fell back alone
And I fell back alone
And I fell

Lover never means forever
It just means some other time or place
But how can two souls still heed together
When you left and it lost its taste

How can we lie together in bed and face to face
and not see anyone at all?
It's time to make a wish and let it burn on down the stream
We can dream together for everything we might have had

Live it long, my love
Live it all, my love
Live it strong, my love
Live it all....

You can't see the bottom from the top
Don't see the edge before you drop
And I fell back alone
And I fell back alone
And I fell

    To me it’s about losing the greatest thing you ever loved and never getting it back

  2. Froglegs 70

    Beautiful beautiful .thank you karl

  3. UpTheAtticStairs

    "If we walk through each other
    As we leave the room,
    You don't have to tell me that it's over"

    Funny, my heart was just screaming the same thing.

  4. coonagh1

    Such a gem.

  5. Mick Lydon

    We walk through eachother...
    I don't know why I keep coming back to this song, which has got to be the saddest song , but I need to.
    Only once you've been there,
    You'll feel it.

  6. BlessingTX7

  9. Shaun Kelly

    when life has lost its taste

  16. omagine

    a dear friend and coworker was murdered in his home, shortly before he was supposed to leave for work. His very best friend Karla called the house from the manager's office a few feet from me. I saw her face through the glass wall as the detective told her it was a homicide scene. It was the worst sound i'd ever heard a human make. We all were shattered and beyond shocked, but had to work, as we were on a deadline. We usually played music while we worked, but that night was silent for hours, other than the sobs.

    Eventually someone said "Karla, hit shuffle" (it was her night to play the music).
    She hit play, and this song came on - just happened to be from his favorite album at the time. To this day it doesn't mean anything about break-ups to me.
    It's now about the sudden turning of Karla and Gregg's amazing friendship into the lonely painful abandonment that Karla felt, in a home surrounded by all the art and music he'd given her.

    She fell back alone. It's been 23 years, and i am finally listening to this song again for the first time, and it's just as awful. RIP Gregg.

    Janet Halley

    Wow..what a sad story. RIP Gregg and bless you and Karla, omagine.

    johnnio99

    Such a sad story and omagine, if I may say, very beautifully and eloquently described, heartbreaking xxx

  17. Bill Bell

    If we walk through each other

  18. John Charles

    This song is just as sad as when I first heard it when I bought the album 25 years ago, hadn't heard again until today, and it still is powerful the video accompanying by Mike Bomback is so lovely too compliments the song well.

  19. Anders Blomster

    "I luv it!"

  20. Shaun Kelly

    Beautiful.

  21. Marnie Otto

    one of my all time favorites.

    roberto c

    Anthony Rodriguez, Walking Crow totally agree

    roberto c

    Anthony Rodriguez, Walking Crow Agree. I never get tired of it. Have you heard Eyptology? Circa 1997. Fantastic album.

  24. kriq07

    very nice... WP has quite a few great songs

  25. jjbluml

    I was living in Boulder when this album hit the air waves. It was very well received and got tremendous airplay from KBCO. It was voted Album of the Year by the station and it's listeners. Great Album and this tune still holds true to this day as does the rest of the album.

  26. Michael Bomback

    I always thought it was a great song.

  27. Nikolas Brady

    this is one of the saddest break up songs of all time, it's hard to listen to even when you're happy. It just about kills me, it should be more famous than it is.

  28. Chromeheart 65

    masterpiece

  29. roar5952

    LISTEN to what I am going to show you for it is the truth and you will know it.
    Jesus tells all the world for he is no respecter of person. That to save your life is to lose it and to lose your life is to save it. AND YET YOU WOKE UP EVERY TIME.
    If ever you find your self falling in the dark. The truth of this is that you will hit the ground. unless God catchs you OR YOU WAKE UP.

    TRUTH OF THE SPIRIT.

  30. Michael Bomback

    thanks

  31. kincaide67
