i think we’re alone now lyrics – tommy james and the shondells

i think we’re alone now

“children, behave”
that’s what they say when we’re together
“and watch how you play”
they don’t understand

and so we’re running just as fast as we can
holding on to one another’s hand
trying to get away into the night
and then you put your arms around me
as we tumble to the ground and then you say

i think we’re alone now
there doesn’t seem to be anyone around
i think we’re alone now
the beating of our hearts is the only sound

look at the way
we gotta hide what we’re doing
’cause what would they say
if they ever knew

and so we’re running just as fast as we can
holding on to one another’s hand
trying to get away into the night
and then you put your arms around me
as we tumble to the ground and then you say

i think we’re alone now
there doesn’t seem to be anyone around
i think we’re alone now
the beating of our hearts is the only sound

i think we’re alone now
there doesn’t seem to be anyone around
i think we’re alone now
the beating of our hearts is the only sound
i think we’re alone now
there doesn’t seem to be anyone around
i think we’re alone now
