Lyrics[]

Lyrics transcribed from Elevate liner notes.[1]

I bet you didn't notice, first time your heart was broken
You called me up and we talked 'til the morning
And the time that you were stranded, I was there before you landed
He was a no-show, I made sure you got home
And I been right there for every minute, this time it's no different
But whatever happens, you should know

CHORUS:
'Cause you're not alone, girl
Look over your shoulder
You don't have to wonder
'Cause you know, you know, you know
That you're not alone girl, I'll be there to hold you
I'll stay 'til it's over and you know, you know, you know
That you're not alone
That you're not alone
You're not alone

All the days that you were stressed out, feeling like pulling your hair out
They were all missing, but I was here listening
You gotta believe in me, even if you can't see me there
I'll catch you when you fall
'Cause I been right there for every minute, this time it's no different
But whatever happens, you should know

CHORUS

I'll be here for you no matter what comes around the corner
As long as I am free, then you won't have to worry no more
'Cause you're not alone girl
Look over your shoulder
You don't have to wonder 'cause you know... you know

CHORUS

I betcha didn't notice first time your heart was broken
You called me up, and we talked 'til the morning

Trivia[]

  • "You're Not Alone" is one of only three standard songs from Elevate not to appear in Big Time Rush, alongside "Invisible" and "Show Me".
  • As of 2023, it is also the only Elevate song never to have been performed live by BTR. However, in 2017, Schmidt performed the song during a Heffron Drive live performance.[6]
  • In November 2012, the Spanish musical group Kevin Karla y La Banda uploaded a Spanish cover of the song to their YouTube channel, which led to a shoutout from Schmidt himself via his Twitter account.[7][8]
