Every time I turn around,
A hideous form is standing there.
The fucking cops are bad enough.
Why should I see you everywhere?

You're alone and I wish I was.
You're alone and I wish I was.
You're alone and I wish I was.

I'm not smiling.
I understand you're hard up for a friend,
But goddamn, there's such a thing as invitations...
And that's just for your information...

You're alone and I wish I was.
You're alone and I wish I was.
You're alone and I wish I was.

I'm under no obligation to be friendly.
You seem to think that your attitude will send me.
(Just because my line's not busy
Doesn't mean I'm expecting a call from you.)

You're alone and I wish I was.
You're alone and I wish I was.
You're alone and I wish I was.
I was.
I was.
I was.

    General Commentit's pretty much about having some one stalking you, then at the end "You're alone and I wish I was." then it says "I was." I think the person who was being stalked killed the stalker.
