Alone by Celine Dion Lyrics

Alone by Celine Dion Lyrics

 

 

“Alone” (HEART LYRICS)

I hear the ticking of the clock
I’m lying here the room’s pitch dark
I wonder where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very slow
Oh I hope that it won’t end though
Alone

Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

You don’t know how long I have wanted
To touch your lips and hold you tight, oh
You don’t know how long I have waited
and I was going to tell you tonight
But the secret is still my own
and my love for you is still unknown
Alone
Till now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
Alone, alone

Celine Dion covered “Alone” for her ninth English-language studio album Taking Chances (2007). It was released as the second single in Europe and North America, and third in the United Kingdom, while “Eyes on Me” was released as the second single in the United Kingdom instead. “Alone” was produced by Ben Moody, ex-member of Evanescence. The version received mixed reviews from music critics, who thought that the cover was too similar with the original, considering it a dull and carbon-copy version.

Critical reception

Music critics were divided on “Alone.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine from AllMusicpicked the song as one of the best tracks on Taking Chances, and wrote that “Celine attempts to snatch Heart’s ‘Alone’ from Carrie Underwood and cribs from Kelly Clarkson‘s operatic rock, two blatant thieveries that, when combined with the quartet of explicit changeups, gives Taking Chances a vaguely desperate vibe, as if Celine needs to prove that she still reigns supreme among all divas.”  Sarah Rodman wrote for The Boston Globe that “Enlisting former Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody adds little; in fact, the carbon-copy arrangement doesn’t pack as much windswept melodramatic punch as Dion’s own ‘It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.’ Great vocal, terrific melody, a fine rendition, but ‘Alone’ is already indelibly stamped by Heart’s Ann Wilson.”  Toronto Star editor Ashante Infantry called this song “sentimental, cringe-worthy diva track.” Chuck Taylor of Billboard called it “a rowdy cover.” Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone gave the song a negative review, writing: “That’s nothing compared to Dion shrieking the ten millionth version of Heart’s ‘Alone’ (mad pitchy, dog!), produced by ex-Evanescence guitarist Ben Moody — Amy Lee, meet the fugliest bullet you ever dodged.”
