About “I’ll Go on Alone”
It’s better to be alone than to be with someone who doesn’t appreciate you or wants to change you. You cannot call it love if you want to change someone, because love means accepting the person for who he/she may be. Marty Robbins’ song “I’ll Go on Alone” is a song about a man who prefers to be alone than to be in a relationship that doesn’t make him happy. He knew that even if they’ll be together and try their best, it’s never going to change. Being with someone who wants to change you for their own good is a sign that the relationship is not going to work out.
