5/22      All Alone Being alone is the toughest time of all in a song. These are songs in which someone listens to a clock tick, plays solitaire, or waits for the phone to ring. Is the beloved gone; is the beloved gone for good? And yet there are also songs when being alone is the tonic. It gives you the comfort you crave.
