Description

“I Alone” is the second single from Lives album, Throwing Copper. The single was released to radio stations in the United States, but was only released commercially overseas. It reached #6 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. The song was ranked 62nd best song of the 1990s by VH1.

Lead singer Ed Kowalczyk said of the songs lyrics, “People think ‘I Alone’ is a love song but it really wasn’t. The lyrics were more abstract, encompassing a much larger message.” He explained the line, “The greatest of teachers won’t hesitate to leave you there by yourself chained to fate,” by saying that a profound lesson he derived from studying spiritual teachings was that religion and truth must be found for oneself and practised, rather than just accepting the word of others.
Live performed “I Alone” at the Woodstock ’99 festival on July 23, 1999 in Rome, New York. The song was featured in a 1995 Homicide: Life on the Streets episode, “Fire: Part 2.” and a Beavis and Butt-head episode entitled “Oil Change”.

This song was covered by Anouk on her album Lost Tracks.

The song was also covered by Chester Bennington, Steve Stevens, Billy Morrison, Chris Chaney, Dave Navarro, and Travis Barker at Rock of the 90s.
