Alone Lyrics

[Verse 1: Noonie Bao]
Lost in your mind
I wanna know
Am I losing my mind?
Never let me go

[Hook: Noonie Bao]
If this night is not forever
At least we are together
I know I'm not alone
I know I'm not alone
Anywhere, whenever

    I think this song is about not being alone and sends a message that someone is always with you and you are never alone.

    I think it means that your are never alone. "Apart, but still together" means that your are apart but this person is still in your heart or mind. You feel different from other people, you aren't the only one who feels that.

    I think that it's about someone who is going through something hard in life. And finding out that the're ar not alone.

    This song is very deep.
    It acknowledges that nobody is ever alone, not even if you are the only person left in the entire Universe, you are still never alone.
    I believe that We are the Living Sacrifice of G-d; we ARE the “Son of G-d”. G-d, the “Father” is the state of being in which All is Whole. We are all connected and part of the same, one thing. This is the idea behind “Phi”. The Universe was “created” because “Nothingness” simply cannot exist by itself, logically. There cannot possibly/logically be “Nothingness” without a relative “Somethingness” (if not “Everythingness”). “Nothing“ can not possibly be defined without “thing” (hence, “no-thing”). Therefore, they are one in the same! “Something” and “Nothing” cannot possibly be defined without the other. They are each, by definition, defined by one another. Neither could possibly exist without the other. Therefore, there IS “EVERYTHING”, because not even “Nothingness” could possibly exist without the relative “everything”, and they are ultimately one in the same thing! That is why We are here and why we have to be separate.
    I am a Pantheist, meaning that the best way that I can describe my “theology” is by saying that “G-d is Everything, and Everything is G-d”. That includes each one of us, but the “Catch-22” is that we must live separate from each other and everything else in order to even exist. If everything was exactly the same (no relativity whatsoever to define anything), there would be Nothingness. Essentially, that is what We All are, yet we are self-aware; aware of ourselves like a dog chasing its own tail. This is what “creates“ Consciousness; being aware of another side of oneself and having the perception of a being (man) existing inside of an environment around us (woman); (In Our OWN IMAGE, We created them, man and woman). The self and the outside environment are all one in the same. It is all part of the same mind.
    That is why G-d is always with Us and why We are never alone is because We ARE that G-d. I have seen a place in which All is Whole again. Where fear, judgement, anger, and shame do not exist because We are All One in the same. It was so Perfect and Beautiful that I could barely even stand it. I was laughing and crying so hard that I could not even stand and literally urinated all over myself. We are a “living sacrifice” so that anything can exist in the first place because nothing, not even “Nothing” can exist by itself. It just can’t. Therefore, We are never alone. That is what I believe that this song is alluding to. We are all part of the same, One Being, which means that we can never possibly be alone. Even the last man in the Universe has themself (man) and their conscious environment around them (woman). We are each an absolutely necessary part of the Whole. The Whole could not possibly exist without each and every part of it. Each part is just as crucial to the Whole. Without each part, the Whole could not possibly be. We are never, ever truly forsaken.

    I think that it means that like you feel left out of everything. it is terrible being left out of everything and not knowing what is going to happen. I would know I am always being left out of everything and I don't know about anything that is going to happen.

    I feel like the song is about a couple and a long term. While the spend their last date, "if this night is not foreverm at leeast we are together",that explains whether they are together are not they are going to get through this together. "Unconsius mind" meaning their unconsious is constantly thinking about eachother, but "they know their not ALone".

    Alright. This is literally my first optimistic translation. So, the song is about telling someone they are never alone (I know I'm not alone) That they are with him/her (Apart but still together) If you watched the MV, here's the text which comes out when the song ends. "You are not alone."

    To me this song sounds like a the singer (girl) has moved away from her best friend she has known for so long. “Lost in your mind” represents how she keeps thinking about her friend, and “am I losing my mind” means that she is always thinking and imagining about her she is making embarrassing hallucinations. The chorus is talking about the night her friend moves “ if this night is not forever” explains that she knows she has to go, but she should make a good use of her time given before she moves. In the second verse it says she has an “unconscious mind, I’m wide awake” says that she is thinking about her so much she seems unconscious, but she is actually wide awake. “Wanna feel one last time, take my pain away” is where she wants to see her one last time before she is separated forever, and that she wants her friend to take her pain away. Well that’s my interpretation

    When I listen to this song I think of my two best friends. Neither of them live near me, and the lyrics say "Apart but still together". To me it means that even if no one is around your never alone. There are always people that care about you. And I also think that it means that through our trials we are not alone. You are never alone in your trials. People are always there to support you. I thought i felt alone for such a long time after my BEST friend moved away then i heard this song and realized even if my friends live HOURS away im never alone there is always someone there to support you.

    everybody is right for the answers Everything is Everything is photo memory of the people that are the closest to you oh I see it is your Consciousness in your sub-consciousness towards the balance of reality closed fractures anytime shaking that how someone see what would say to be the after life even though that you're gone you know your subconsciousness is the backup memory did you have through the other life Wow even though you're conscious body is dead and gone your reincarnation or memory do you have well always be there and it's built in there as a Time Loop basically that are given to you as a human three motions of happiness and it's what made you wholesome and or also it's vice versa to those that walk the plains how subconscious multi-dimensional fractures in time you're never alone as long as there's somebody that's there with you by your side you're never alone there's always somebody that's going to be there to help you whether it be stranger or anyting

    I really love the song alone and when I heard it yesterday I noticed it was talking about how much we love other family members and friends and when we are apart sometimes you might get the feeling that you are alone and it's telling us even though we're apart we still have those people in our heart and mind

    I think is about somebody that is lonely but there somebody out there that has the same situation.Then they gather and the story ends with "Your not alone"

    I think it means that if you have a problem and you don't want to talk about it or you feel different from other people, there are other people with your problem and you aren't the only one. At least that's what I think, idk.

    This is super weird, but I imagine a girl sitting next to her friend who has passed on, and feeling so alone. Then, another girl walks into the room and puts her hand on the girl's sholder. The fifth line, which sounds happier is about the fact that these two feel for each other. Suddenly, there's a bright light and the dead friend floats into the air, eyes closed, and arms out, rotates, and drops back to the bed. She is alive! The other two look very surprised, but hug her all the same. The song ends.
