Eric Carmen – All By Myself lyrics

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

Livin' alone
I think of all the friends I've known
But when I dial the telephone
Nobody's home

All by myself
Don't wanna be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure
Sometimes I feel so insecure
And love so distant and obscure
Remains the cure

All by myself
Don't wanna be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live, all by myself anymore

When I was young
I never needed anyone
And makin' love was just for fun
Those days are gone

All by myself
Don't wanna be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live, all by myself anymore

All by myself
Don't wanna be, all by myself anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna live, all by myself anymore

    This song is about someone reflecting on their life, which they have lived in dissipation - "making love just for fun" etc. He realises that love "remains the cure" while feeling, that love seems"so distant and obscure". (i can relate to this.) this song reminds me a bit of the parable of the prodigal son, (or, the lost son, new international version), in the bible who asks his father for a share of his inheritance (while the father is still alive), and then leaves home and goes to a far country and squanders it all in loose living. He then comes to his senses and goes back to his fathers house to be warmly embraced by him. The writer of this song is looking for "true love". Such a love does exist, (speaking from my own experience - I. E. It does work!) in the arms of jesus who loves us all unconditionally and with great compassion, especially our lost sons and daughters of this fallen world. My urgent plea is for those who may read this posting, to answer jesus' call of love, as it is very urgent as the world becomes more wicked. The only safety is to be found in christ. I most strongly urge you to pray to jesus, read a bible, seek a church, speak to a christian, seek out a pastor. Jesus is returning soon. Please consider these words as time is running out. My prayer is that you find jesus as he is looking for you all.

    I love this song. It has so much meaning of who I was in my younger years. It's amazing how ur life ends up in a song that touches the heart. I also believe it's part of growing up and seeing what life truely means in a relationship. That one on one commitment between two souls. I'm now divorced and my journey is searching again for that true love. Not 2 be alone, "all by myself".
