lyrics

(You Can’t) Just Go It Alone
Lyrics and melody by Cat Faber 2019

Saving the world is a delicate art
You can’t just go it alone
You need some help when the troubles start
You can’t just go it alone
I wish I could take away the smart
Of whatever old injury blinded your heart
You’ve got capable folks to take your part
And you can’t just go it alone.

The last dark element seeks its prey
You can’t just go it alone
You can’t command because we won’t obey
But you can’t just go it alone
But we’re just standing here to say
You’re gonna need the help of the Fey
You’re an awful fool to drive Erin away
When you can’t just go it alone

We’re not okay that you shot someone
But you can’t just go it alone
We need an answer that isn’t gun
But you can’t just go it alone
Fleet and brave we yield to none
This is a battle that had better be won;
We’re here to help you get it done.
You can’t just go it alone

You can send us home, with orders stern;
But you can’t just go it alone
And there’s not much point; we will just return
‘Cause you can’t just go it alone
We’ve messed this up at every turn
But if we don’t all of us grow up and learn
The sky will fall, and the Marsh will burn
So you can’t just go it alone.
You can't just go it alone
You can't just go it
Alone.
