All Alone Lyrics

I fell in love with a wind-up souvenir
I bought it downtown as I was on my way to meet you
She sounds like the songs you used to sing to put me to sleep
Now that you're gone, she's all that I've left to hold

And I feel so all alone

    "all alone" is about how he felt when his mother died. he was at an antique shop and found a wind-up toy that reminds him of his mother. he thought it sounds like the lullabys his mother sang him. he feels alone without her, she can't help him anymore. but he knows that the wind-up toy will never be the same and it won't bring her back. he wants to keep the wind-up toy forever but he knows that one day, it's going to break. then he'll have to move on.

    The idea of this song might be about how he loses someone important to him. The doll symbolizes his lover for something that he tried to share with the girl, such as his passion for music or something of the sort. In a part of the song it talks about how he gave her the doll, and the girl rejected it. That is the break up.

    All these interpretations are way off. This song is using a wind up doll as a metaphor for the love he lost. He got so caught up in one specific thing that his (I presume) ex didn't approve of. His ex didn't like Nate doing something that she disliked or at least thought he shouldn't be doing, like either:
    1. His band & his career
    2. Wanted to take a break from their relationship.
    So, Nate used a wind-up doll to explain all his feelings. I genuinely believe that the "wind-up" doll might just be his band.

    Nate said that it's about falling in love with an inanimate doll,lol well I think it's about having an atachment towards inanimate things like in attampt to replace the loss on a loved one in death or just a break up peharps,
    but still feeling alone in the end
