We were so pleased with 'radio,' Biscuit and I tried another collaboration....the lyrics came in a rush, out of me being single for the first time in years and realizing that no matter if you are with someone forever, you're still on your own road, doing your own thing.

I learned this while walking a labyrinth in North Carolina in Jan. 2004. This guy joined arms with me as I was walking out and we walked and walked a while with our arms linked, him walking his path and me walking my path, side by side. We were having a great time and it appeared we were walking the same direction, but oh, no! We got to a point where his road took him the opposite way from my path.

Turns out, I was walking out, and even though we were both walking in the same direction, he was really walking in!!!!

I was pretty shocked at how life can be like that, too. How it can look that you're on the same road with someone, but actually you're on two different roads that aren't even going in the same direction at all...

lyrics

you're wearing my old blue shirt
the one i left at your house
at that party, we talked all night
but i can't remember what it was we talked about

but i remember holding hands on the street...
and that used to mean something

oh, we go it alone
whether or not you know
we all go it alone

you're wearing the smile you gave me
the night that we first met
before i knew how far under my thin skin you could get yourself

and i remember the smoke on your breath
from your last cigarette

and oh
we go it alone
whether or not you know (it's true)
we go it alone (wherever we're going to)

you wanted to drink red wine with your windows open to the street
and, man, i thought you were the coolest thing
we sat there a while without saying anything
or getting that far
and that night, oh, the stars, they looked so close that i almost broke
but instead i just drove home

o, we go it alone
whether or not you know, it's true
we all go it alone, wherever we're going to
we all go it alone
wherever we're going to
wherever we're going to
