No One Is Alone

(from "Into The Woods")

Words & Music:

Stephen Sondheim


I'm still searching for the chords to this beautiful song.


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 halfway through the wood.

Others may deceive you, you decide what's good.

You decide alone, but no one is alone.


People make mistakes; fathers, mothers.  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.

While you're seeing your side, maybe you forgot:

They are not alone.  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.
