Enemy, The - You're Not Alone Lyrics




Don't let the sun go down, On an Empire,
It's too much to waste. Don't let the walls come down,
Round an Empire, It's too much to wave goodbye.

We've been working for a long time,
We've been fighting for a way,
Now in the streets men standing in lines they're all wasted anyway.
You're living in an incestuous world,
Where you're conscious holds no weight,
You sold us down the river like rats then,
You drowned and beat the brave.

You're not alone you know, you're not alone you know
You're not alone no no.

Don't let the sun… too much to wash away.

We've been working for a long time,
We've been fighting for a way,
Now in the streets men standing in lines they're all wasted anyway.
You're living in an incestuous world,
Where you're conscious holds no weight,
You sold us down the river like rats then,
You drowned and beat the brave.

You're not alone you know, you're not alone you know
You're not alone no no. (yeah, yeah)
(Not alone, not alone)
There's just too many dreams in this wasteland for you to leave us all behind.
There's just too many dreams in this wasteland for you to leave us all behind.

(You're not alone no, no)

You're not alone you know, you're not alone you know (yeah, yeah)
You're not alone no no.
You're not alone you know, you're not alone you know
You're not alone no no.

    Implying labour are somehow pro empire😂

    Shapiro The Hero

    David Young I don’t think labour like our empire. Or our country. They’d rather be a Marxist Saudi Arabia

    Selim Sultan Akbar

    Shapiro The Hero british fuckface

    Rabbi Shekelberg

    @Selim Sultan Akbar Yawn

  23. EddieK

    He was working at the same club as I did this year. lol

    guitaristlad1

    Who was

    EddieK

    @guitaristlad1 The singer, he's from Coventry and worked (and probably still does) at the Empire Club

    guitaristlad1

    That'll be because he's one of the owners... 😂

    EddieK

    Probably, but Phil is the main one

  24. Daniel Smith

    Most underrated band ever

    Kaz Davidson

    Daniel Smith couldn't agree more ✌happy new year!

    brad wadsworth

    I agree on the whole they are but when this album hit they were big time just couldn't quite replicate anythin of the same quality. Probably the best indie album since the brit pop era

  25. Obvious Bambi

    Seeing them on Thursday!

  26. Travis Rabble

    This is the anthem for BREXIT - ever since leaving europe i have been playing this song and it reinforces the greatness of Great Britain through its lyrics.

  27. ArandomNutter

    The sun never sets on our empire

  28. TheDon101277

    LEE COX u said it all there my friend such shame. In 90's was excited for future music thinking how Amazing music was then the things to come gotta be mind boggling. Sad Big record companys bought up all the independents ended up controling market & steered it towards "WRONG DIRECTION" type pop bands.

  29. TheDon101277

    Awesome Band. Pretty Deep Lyrics for such a young band. Just Love the British-Ness makes me proud to be working class Brit

  30. david mitchinson

    Class this song

  31. stealthy guy

    Brilliant song took me a while to find it again..under-rated but great band

  32. Ivan

    Don't let the sun go down
    on our empire
    it's too much to waste
    and don't let the walls
    come down round our empire
    it's too much to wave goodbye
    we've been working for a long time
    we've been fighting for a way
    now in the streets men stand in lines
    they're all wasted anyway
    you live in an incestuous world
    where your conscience holds no weight
    you sold us down the river like rats
    then you drowned and beat the brave

    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone at all
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone at all

    don't let the sun go down
    on our empire
    it's too much to waste
    and don't let the rains come down,
    on our empire
    it's too much to wash away
    we've been working for a long time
    we've been fighting for a way
    now in the streets men stand in lines
    they're all wasted anyway
    you live in an incestuous world
    where your conscience holds no weight
    you sold us down the river like rats
    then you drowned and beat the brave

    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone at all
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone at all

    yeah...

    not alone not alone

    there's just too many dreams
    in this wasteland
    for you to leave us all behind
    there's just too many dreams
    in this wasteland
    for you to leave us all behind

    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone at all
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone, you know
    you're not alone at all


    Thats it I think, knock yourselves out. E-mail me if you've got any improvements

  33. John Gee

    Music is music,its the lyrics that tells the story of the song,music comes after,This band is diverse and very good at it, listen to the new stuff,its different and so it should be ,keep it up Tom and the lads FTM

  34. Hu Fc

    shame they turned the back on the "music for the people". I can understand a band transitioning but I thought this stuff was the heart and soul of the enemy, the new album just doesn't sit right with me. It feels like they've tried to go down the route of the Arctic monkeys, but having climbed over the trench got lost in no man's land.

    Eddie Lay

    +Hu Fc yeah agree, they sort of look and sound all hipster all of a sudden, which to me is the opposite of what they're about

    Phil Mills

    Its the paradox of success. Can't sing about poverty when you're doing alright... So they have to sing about other stuff that matters, and thats OK, as long as its still honest. Still an awesomely talented band, haven't heard a crap song yet.

    Mod 66

    What are ou you on about

  35. Lee James Cluskey

    This is a Tune as well!

  36. Givingitashot.

    Love this song, love this band!!!

  37. katoness

    Like a young Weller in his Jam days.

    Paul Gernon

    katoness steady on now...

  38. Elliott Weston

    Good voice man

  39. Matthew Blastland

    How people prefer to listen to rap music etc over stuff like this is beyond me

    Joe

    how can people be so small minded not to enjoy all genres, good music is good music shit music is shit music.

    Selim Sultan Akbar

    Joe smartass

    judged by time

    Confirmed. It is beyond you.

    Quinton beck

    @Lol Kutur No it's not

    James Cook

    Matthew Blastland so weird that some people have different tastes to you, just incredible

  40. Chanchester

    They should be much bigger than they are. Brilliant band.

    Snaily

    I'm sure it is entirely the fault of Music For the People that they died. Some bangers on there but people couldn't look past the... _Ahem_ rampant sampling.

  41. Ed Ludford

    looking forward to seeing these guys at bst hyde park:D

  42. HolteEnder85

    I hope these make a comeback they don't get the recognition they deserve. Class band man!

    Dan Pearce

    I'm going to see them &th of June.... It will be my third time. They are a fucking top live act!!

    lewis wood

    they're touring now and are making a new album mate

  43. Joe Edwards

    If Tom Clarke looked like Alex Turner they'd be a fucking massive band. 

    It's a shame that's how it is 

    Phil Mills

    I don't care how they look. I listen to the muisic

    nikmark01

    Phil Mills

    Yep and Alex Turner looks too showbiz. AM''s music is bland and non-emotive compared to this.
    This stuff is a catalyst for change.. it's more than entertainment!!!

  44. Craig Banks

    Class song shit video

  45. Nick Nick Nick

    They are ugly. Doesn't take a music fan to see that.

    Libertas Democratiam

    Didn't realise we listened to music with our eyes.

    Mod 66

    It's because of cunts like you they split up you fucking spotty helmet

  46. Uncaged

    ... Said a non-music fan arsehole.

  47. 993tjs

    fuck off m8 this is a democracy meaning we can vote for whoever we want. who are u to call someone a piece of shit for their political views? fucking wanker

  48. XellKamikaze

    Ugly fuckers

  49. Daley Thompson

    at least they have the balls to sing about the shit state of affairs this country is is, god fucking bless them, they are onwards and upwards

  50. euanrocks

    Vulgar piece of shit. Fuck off. No Pasaran!

  51. Ian Ng

    Yea, go Lord's Resistance Army, get in, Al Qaida, and well played KKK!
    Knobhead.

  52. George Holmes

    Where did you get that from you tool?

  53. swifty4wba

    England England England England England England England England England England EN-GER-LAND!

  54. Sam Rabin

    bnp has got fuck all to do with this

  55. archive303

    BNP!

    Fair play boys!

    Libertas Democratiam

    Nothing to do with the BNP, songs about the bands hometown the steal works or something like that was shut down the last thing to go in their town from deindustrialization. The empire they refer to is their towns industrial empire that powered towns like theirs once upon a time, now towns like theirs and mine are dying out there's nothing in them, no hope, no nothing, my town is the birthplace of Pilkingtons and Beecham's aswell as a coal mining heartland, now there's nothing our little business empires that kept this wee town and it's townfolk im decent paying work, not like the zero hour crap its riddled with now. So again absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the BNP, jist a bunch of small town lads pissed off at the fact their town along many others have been left to rot for decades and now politicians and health professionals are falling over themselves trying to figure out why these shitty towns have such high suicide rates... it's not difficult to understand why maybe if people like yourself and the Westminster croonies spent a fair bit of time in one of said shitty towns, spoke to the people then judged them, maybe just maybe shitty little towns like mine might just get the TLC they so desperately need.
    Thatcher started the mess there's not disputing that, but what have PMs and governments that have followed done? Other than kick the can down the road hoping someone else will fix the problem.
    So may i suggest taking your wee thumbs and doing a little research into a song and the artist behind it aswell as the meaning, before you make such a stupid comment.

  56. Gasboy8

    love this tune!

  57. shaun bew

    If you love INDIE you will love THE BLUE COLLARS. Best new indie band around BY FAR. Check them out, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Fuck x factor!!

  58. Laura Shaw

    Seeing these on Wednesday! So excited :D :D :D

  59. alex jones

    One of the biggest Alex Turner fans here, but seriously?

  60. katoness

    Sold us down the river l like rats!!

  61. burnleymark

    Tom's lyrics are immense. Getting me through a really tough time at the minute.

  62. Andrew Coates

    Brill song I will never ever get sick of this song

  63. pureding!

    totally agree

  64. robbie OVERSBY

    on the whole of this album i dont think there is one song i will ever get sick of listening to.

  65. Ray Weller

    sorry dakota and jenny and sov

  66. ben procter

    am i the only one who thinks Tom looks like Bovver from Green Street?

  67. ben procter

    tom clarke - bovver from green street...

  68. sitdownshutup16

    no im having an racehorse

  69. addison williams

    hate thatcher all you want but out of all our past prime misters she had the biggest balls of them all. even though some of her plans got her hated she stuck to them which is what we need now a prime minister who will make decisions for our country and not be bullied out of them

    Libertas Democratiam

    We need someone like her to sort this brexit mess out, Thatcher sure as hell wouldn't have gone begging not once but twice to the EU for an extension, hell she wouldn't have let the EU take the lead negotiating either.

  70. sitdownshutup16

    Alex turner - John lennon.
    Miles kane - Paul mccartney.
    Tom clarke - Paul Weller.

  71. sitdownshutup16

    thank you someone puts in a decent comment

  72. The HeavyJets

    Fuck the government, This is a class tune!

  73. Hbirdman1994

    Fuckwit by name Fuckwit by nature. We wasn't a big layer in the world before she came in, you musn't have heard of the 70's. You hever hear about the IMF bailout we got in 76? The last labour government didn't do fuck all neither did any previous one because all they cared about was the unions, benefits and immigration and the mess may have started over there but if the government kept tabs on our banks it wouldnt of hurt us so much. Government seems to know whats best for us when it suits them.

  74. gibbo909

    Spending cuts because labour pissed it all up the wall you clown.

  75. gibbo909

    Fucking Damm right m8!!!!! Fucking Tony Blair and Gordon the Moron.

  76. Hbirdman1994

    Labour fucking ruined this country. Slag Thatcher off as much as you like just dont be blind to the fact that Labour did fuck all to change it and just made it worse, now were in a country ruled by guardian reading ponces.

    Libertas Democratiam

    It's depressing to read this comment and still things are no better, if anything it's got worse since Labour put Corbyn at the top. God help us if he EVER gets into number 10, people think Tory austerity is bad, just wait to see how the economy would do under Corbyn, disaster would be and understatement.
    Can't even mention the whole brexit cluster f###.
    Yet this song brings me feelings of hope.

  77. MKRocker94

    Such a fantastic song

  78. gibbo909
