We Were Together

Key Signature: G major
Time Signature: 4/4
Artist's Description
This song is meant to be a folk or Americana tune. Cut off from social interaction, I thought to myself why is it so important for us to follow the recommendations of health professionals. That is when I realized that we were actually staying away from each other to help our fellow man.

The first verse is all imagery. The man looking straight ahead (down the road) is our wanting to plan and know what the future holds, which during the pandemic was hard to do. Everything on the side of the road is all the moments in the short term that we miss when looking too far ahead. By the end of the verse he realizes that he needs to enjoy every moment he has to live a full life. The second verse is a lady whose husband died of Coronavirus. She misses him dearly and he stays in her mind constantly from the beginning of the day until she goes to bed. The third verse wraps everything up.

Driving his beat up Chevy he was always looking down the road
Focused on nothing but where he was planning to go
He missed all the beauty that was just beyond his sight
His world was full of darkness, he had never seen the light
And up until that point in time, he thought that was how to live
Until he came to realize he had more things to give

We were together, even though we were alone
We were together, even though we were alone

She gazed out toward the yard in her favorite rocking chair
The flowers were a bloomin, a smell of spring was in the air
Missing all the stories that he used to tell,
deep in her eyes the tears started to well
She saw him in her dreams at night, he would never leave her head
When she went to sleep at night there was an empty spot in the bed

We were together, even though we were alone
We were together, even though we were alone

It was a time we had to sacrifice and look beyond ourselves
Not for our own wants and needs but for each other's health
It wasn't until that instant,
when we learned about social distance,
we were together even though we were alone
We were together even though we were alone
We were together even though we were alone
