alone

just really feeling this tonight.........thank gawd for pearl jam.



Mmm, Wide awake and he shakes in a panic.
Never woke up alone Ever before.
Had a woman long as he can remember. His to forget
But he can't, he can't.
Out of bed and he dreams in the shower. She's standing naked, He's apologizing.
Reaches for her and the water turns red. Got woken up to be Burned, burned again.

Go it alone. You got it, so it goes.
Got his knees to his face, she can't take it any other way.

On the street he's walking wounded. Doesn't smile for the child at play.
Thoughts of suicide and alleviation. Anything to get his heart off of Nicole.

Go it alone. You got it so it goes.
Got his knees to his face...he can't take it for another day. Yeah, yeah.

Wide awake and he shakes in a panic.
Never woke up alone
Ever before.
Had his woman long as he can remember.
Tries to forget, but he can't... he can't....




great words.........

    Alone might just be my favorite song of all time of any band. It's hard to pick one PJ song, but this version (the lyrics you listed) is definitely a favorite. To me, it epitomizes all the reasons of why I LOVE Pearl Jam. The lyrics, the music, the way Ed sings it...it just screams PEARL JAM to me. My favorite line is "got his knees to his face...can't take it any other way." Brilliant and soooo powerful.

    Peace.
  • where's the love? :o
    this song just so speaks to me at times....eh, the beauty that is pearl jam. :)

    I too like this one.
  • i was fortunate too...got to hear it live at the gorge. :D a-maz-ing!!!


    question: whenever i post pj lyrics...i simply copy/paste them off theskyiscrape songbook. now, even on the site it is readily admitted that the lyrics may be off.....and i know in times past they have been. overall, i think they do a damn fine job with em there though. that said - i was just listening to lost dogs a few days ago, and the first line....."wide awake like snakes in a panic"...sounds clear on the album version, but yesterday i was listenening to the gorge boot and it sounded like the first line he sang "wide awake and he shakes in a panic." so which is it? i know later in the song, definitely is "shakes in a panic"....but the first line always sounded like "snakes in a panic"...just as listed on tsis. anyone care to offer an opinion....give a good listen to lost dogs...i'd be interested. i even listened to both versions of the song that i have to be certain, and in both, it definitely sounds like ed is singing the first line differently each time. so makes me most curious for other opinions. :)
    Stay with me...
    Let's just breathe...

    Yes, I sure do!!! Would you like it? I'd be more than happy to send it to you!

    Are there other songs that were on your stolen CD that you'd like me to check if I have?

    I love this song, but the old version, the one with this lyrics:

    Wide awake and he shakes in a panic.
    Never woke up alone ever before.
    Had his woman long as he can remember.
    Tries to forget but he can't, he can't.
    Out of bed and he dreams in the shower.
    She's standing naked and apologizing.
    Reaches for her and the water turns red hot.

    Woken up to be burned burned again.

    Go it alone. You got it so it goes.
    I wanna breath and I can't.
    I can't take it any other way.

    On the streets he's walking wounded.
    Doesn't smile for the child at play.
    Thoughts of suicide and alleviation.
    Anything to get his heart off of the coals.
    Does he fly away or just talk about it
    Like a seagull born to cry in the wind.
    All experiences lead to another.
    All-alone you will meet the one who lies in wait.


    Go it alone. You got it so it goes.
    I wanna breathe and I can't.
    I can't take it any other way. Yeah, yeah.


    ...don't talk to me.

    Wide awake and he shakes in a panic.
    Never woke up alone ever before.
    Had his woman long as he can remember.
    Tries to forget but he can't... he can't...
    Out of bed and he dreams in the shower.
    She's standing naked and apologizing.
    Reaches for her and the water turns red hot.
    Woken up to be burned burned again.
