"I Think We're Alone Now" is a song originally written & performed by rock group Tommy James & The Shondells. Rivers was more inspired by the cover performed by Tiffany and made popular in the 1980s and Weezer's version of the song closely follows her re-arrangement. Weezer performed this song in concert at the beginning of their 2012 Tour, but the song was eventually dropped out of rotation and it hasn't been played since. This song was only officially released on the band's Official Bootleg of their performance at the Borgata in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Additional Info

  • Rivers Cuomo also performed this song with a back-up band at a fundraiser for his daughter's preschool in 2010.
  • This song is referenced in "Heart Songs" but it was incorrectly attributed to Debbie Gibson. Rivers was made aware of this mix-up but kept it in the finished song because he liked it that way.

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.

[Instrumental break]

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)...
