Tommy James - I Think We're Alone Now Lyrics




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,
Holdin' onto one another's hand,
Tryin' to get away into the night,
And then you put your arms around me,
And 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 doin'.
'Cause what would they say,
If they ever knew and so we're,

Running just as fast as we can,
Holdin' onto one another's hand,
Tryin' to get away into the night,
And then you put your arms around me,
And 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.

Running just as fast as we can,
Holdin' onto one another's hand,
Tryin' to get away into the night,
And then you put your arms around me,
And 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, (alone now)
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now, (alone now)
The beating of our hearts is the only sound.

I think we're alone now, (alone now)
There doesn't seem to be anyone around.
I think we're alone now, (alone now)
The beating of our hearts is the only sound.

I think we're alone now, (alone now)...

  1. juan flores

    Like si vienes por la campaña :')

  2. Robert Lavrakas

    Man did this hit a nerve!!!!!!

  3. Tom Hyde

    0.75 speed is the Cloverfield 10 trailer

  4. BADASS brain cancer survivor85

    This song reminds me of my mom she loves this song!!

  5. arlene iardella

    Tommy James and the Shondells originally did Many Many but most people think it was Billy Idol. Tommy James was one of the great ones from that time.....

  6. arlene iardella

    Love this song.... one of my all time favorites!!!!

  7. Danny C. Jewell

    There are few things in life you can be sure of , one thing is , this hands down one of my favorite all time songs .

  8. Edward Herman

    This song reminds me of the great times I had in Alaska with the one I loved. Think about her a lot since I left in 1967.

    Lulu Moore

    Aahh super sweet comment. The world needs more of these

  9. Ride The Lightning

    This is the best version. The 60s and 70s were the last two decades that actually used real instruments. The early 80s was kind of the same but synths were at their full peak at least in pop.

  10. Cathy Mccoy

    Early childhood memories ❤

  11. Piper Bailey

    Umbrella academy 💜

  12. Nancy Amato

    A cool naughty song for us teens in1967! 😃

    Children behave, that's what they say when we're together
    And watch how you play

    Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
    And 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 doin'

    If they ever knew

    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
    Running just as fast as we can, holding on to one another hands
    Trying to get away into the night and then you put your arms around me
    And 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

  69. Art Quinn

    These guys stole from Tiffany then used a time machine.

  70. TimeandMonotony

    Just rewatched 10 Cloverfield Lane (great movie) and this got stuck in my head, so naturally I had to come and listen to the whole song.
    Poor Emmett!

  71. Jeramy Grajiola

    Best version and only version.... love this era

  72. Tyrant Badboy

    Aslong as I'm not in a fallout shelter with a nutcase named Howard I'll listen to this song lol

  73. Robert Roudi

    Sorry if you grew in the 60s this was a cutting edge band brought a hole new sound damm they were soooo good !!!

  74. alloyrat

    Saw them sing this live at the Rolling Stone Teen Club in 1967.

    arlene iardella

    Lucky you....

  75. Edmar Fecler

    going by the comments, it seems I'm one of the few who knew about this one before Tiffany's and got confused when finding *hers* instead of _this one._
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Jane Hayes

    Not alone

    Brandon Bennetzen

    Kinda ironic that Tiffany when she first came across this song actually hated this version.

  76. caj11 1

    There's no substitute for Tommy James. Tiffany's cover a total joke. This is the one and only.

  77. criticalmass500

    Wan ist Mikkel.

  78. judycaneline

    Ok but like Johnny x Ponyboy vibes

  79. 79tazman

    I heard this before Tiffany did it but I use to listen to Tiffany's version cover

  80. Destination Unknown

    This song (according to my dad) was written by one of the band's five year old son. Putting it into perspective of a 5 year old, this makes more sense.

  81. Susan Brooks

    I need a lady that listens to good music and do a Route 66 cruise with that’s my dream vacation

  82. Mario486 Waluigi

    When I first heard this. I thought this was the Beatles

  83. Jeff Wisener

    Who is Tiffiny....doesn't matter to me lol

  84. Fresh Heinrichs

    I think of Cloverfield when I hear this

  85. Hilda Garcia

    I was 14 was still in Tx.now raised in Arizona takes me back I was so naive still am but I've lost my husband and I'm lost without him.can someone tell me what happened to our best years of life.

  86. JackQ - Games and More!

    HP ad brought me here.

  87. hey_ nduta

    Omg this song

  88. Kevin Spaulding

    Everyone thinks Tiffany sang it first. SMH. What kind of parents are raising these kids? So sad.

  89. Stefan Tomasi

    Lizzie McGuire - Misadventures in babysitting brought me here

  90. That Chico- Bert

    It's a toss up with Tiffany's version, they both gold

  91. Robert Roudi

    This is my favorite song of all time.

  92. AC DC

    Tiffany's version was a cover!? My whole life is a damn lie 😑

    salemstales

    @BOX5 BASTARD why the fuck do you say yell at the end of everything thats dumb. I dont think you ever wrote anything. I have Ive written songs, poems and books

    Marduk Gilgamesh

    U thought a modern singer wrote a song?! XD

    salemstales

    @Marduk Gilgamesh especially Tiffany lol. All Tiffany is , is giggling and pining for boys

    amerocker

    Yep, pretty much true.
    😉

    Luis Alonso

    For real

  93. lisa karson

    We're running just as fast as we can and yes Mom the scissors are and always have been in my hand!
    "I was in a rush to grow up..
    Look Mom.. no cuts.
    Just a stomach in disgust and fear that I might go nuts this year."
    -Micheal Larson (Eyedea) R.I.P. aka Oliver Hart/the best independent hip hop artist ever imo.. Check him out: that line was out of a song called, "Even Shadows Have Shadows" thank me later

  94. Mary Scholz

    Good memorys

  95. Citrus Pirate

    Who's here because of 10 Cloverfield Lane?

  96. J.G. Wentworth

    Who cares about 10 Cloverfield Lane... How about mother's day (1980) am I right?

  97. J. O

    I was trying to figure out what music to jam to this fine Saturday night and was going through all the 2019 hits. I randomly came across this old school song and now there’s no turning back. This is where it’s at. I wish they played this in clubs.

  98. Etienne

    Those bird chirps in the recording gave me a wild trip the second time I did acid. My girlfriend said I was jumping around like I was flying.

  99. david Rapp

    I read an article on this song that Tiffany covered, in the article they did not give credit to the writer (Ritchie Cordell) or Tommy James & The Shondells.
    I graduated in 1965 and know songs and who wrote them going back to the 50's, to not credit the writer or group in an article is not fair or honest.

    When I did a search on Google just for the heck of it the release date listed was 1987, that is bogus and shows how Google manipulates information, if they can post misinformation on when a song was released just think what else they can manipulate.
