    Hi,
    The sentence is "We live as we dream - alone."
    First, it's important to use the proper conventions of punctuation.
    Begin a sentence with capital letter and end it with a period (or question mark). This is so simple, but it's very important.
    Note also that if you use a hyphen for a dash, it's best to leave a space on either side - otherwise it looks like a hyphen. Unfortunately, a normal keyboard doesn't have a dash, and I can't get one to "take" on this page.

    OK, now:
    The sentence means "We live the same way as we dream - alone"
    "We dream alone, and we live in the same way - alone."

    I'm so sorry Sara, something must've happened with my post.
    Raymott did the job, so there's no need for correction (i.e. I agree with him).

    Hi, Raymott. Thank you for your valuable post. I believe that you are a good teacher. The sentence should be like this "We live as we dream - alone." I remember it now. Thanks anyway.
