Instrumental version by Artie Shaw

Alone together, beyond the crowd
Above the world
We’re not too proud to cling together
We’re strong as long as we’re together

Alone together, the blinding rain
The starless nights were not in vain
For we’re together
And what is there to fear together

Our love is as deep as the sea
Our love is as great as a love can be
And we can weather the great unknown
If we’re alone together, together, together
If we’re alone together.
