All By Themselves
All By Themselves is a demo track written by Martin Gore. It appears as part of Martin's 5-track demo tape for the 1983 "Construction Time Again" album as the final track on the tape; the other four demos are available to listen to on this page. This track may have been intended as a B-side for a single release of And Then... which never materialized. Alan Wilder stated on Shunt Q&A that he does not remember this song, but perhaps his memory of this song has simply faded with time.

Thanks to Ronny for transcribing the lyrics. Please note that this is our best effort; the song's vocals are very difficult to make out, so accuracy is not guaranteed.
- Alan Wilder believes that And Then... was at one point considered to be released as a single; see Shunt Q&A: Construction Time Again.
