This is the rock version of Alone, an original song by Babbles. Babbles, a young singer-songwriter about to enter Form 4 (i.e., Grade 10), mainly performs cover versions of songs by Japanese artists like YUI, but also writes her own original songs.

This is the second in a series of music videos featuring students at SKH Lam Woo Memorial Secondary School. The purpose of this series is to allow students to share their love of music while helping them develop their talents as performers and songwriters.

Lyrics

Alone: Music and lyrics by Babbles (2011)

You said you know everything about me—
The things I like;
The things I dislike.
You pretend to know me a lot.
In fact, what do you know?

I lost my way in a crowded street.
You said you will come and find me,
But you never keep your promise baby.
Is this all a dream? I am so confused
I just want to scream out loudly.
Difficulties keep coming in streams.

Although no one stays with me,
I still wanna pursue my dream.
I will make my own way
Until we meet again one day.
The way that I’m looking for—
I still don’t know what it will be.
I will fight forever and ever.

You said you know everything about me—
The things I do;
The things I won’t do
You pretend to know me a lot.
In fact, what do you know?

I lost my way in a crowded street.
You said you will come and find me,
But you never keep your promise baby.
It is not a dream, undoubtedly.
I just want to scream out loudly.
Difficulties keep coming in streams.

Although no one stays with me,
I still wanna pursue my dream.
I will make my own way
Until we meet again one day.
The way that I’m looking for—
I still don’t know what it will be.
I will fight forever and ever.

Time goes by;
We need to say goodbye.
Don’t be surpised;
Don’t ask me why.
But what I heard is someone sigh.
I will be fine.

Although no one stays with me,
I still wanna pursue my dream.
I will make my own way
Until we meet again one day
The way that I’m looking for—
I still don’t know what it will be.
I will fight forever and ever.
