no one is alone, not even in the woods?

by Andrea O'Connell

There are days that I don’t believe this; and there are days when I so want to believe


No One Is Alone

No one here to guide you
Now you’re on your own
Only me beside you
Still you’re not alone
No one is alone
Truly
No one is alone

Sometimes people leave you
Half-way through the wood
Others may deceive you
You decide what’s good
You decide alone
But no one is alone

People make mistakes
Father’s, Mother’s
People make mistakes
Holding to their own
Thinking they’re alone

Honor their mistakes
Everybody makes
One another’s terrible mistakes

Witches can be right
Giants can be good
You decide what’s right
You decide what’s good
Just remember

Someone is on your side
Someone else is not
Well we’re seeing our side
Maybe we forgot
They are not alone
Cause no one is alone

Hard to see the light now
Just don’t let it go
Things will come out right now
We can make it so
Someone is on your side
No one is alone

Words and Lyrics by Steven Sondheim, from Into The Woods
