"I Won't Spend Another Night Alone" as written by and Kris Roe....
A star up in the sky goes slowly passing by,
The lights below...they spell out your name.
You're comfort on my mind and you're with me all the time.
And lot's of feeling that I can't explain.
I won't spend another night alone.

Out of every girl I meet, no other can compete
I'd ditch em all for a night with you.
I know you don't believe you mean this much to me
But I promise you that you do.

If I had one wish this is what it would be
I'd ask you to spend all your time with me,
That we'd be together forever.
We'd buy a small house in south central L.A.
Raise lots of kids then we'd both join a gang
Just as long as we're together.

The things you make me want to do
I'd rob a quik-e-mart for you
I'd go to the pound and let all the cats go free
Just as long as you'd be with me.

    General Comment"We'd buy a small house in south central LA, raise lots of kids and we'd both join a gang"? Has anyone else noticed that the Ataris have this weird mocking fascination with gangsters? Great line though, great line.

    General CommentKris wrote this song when he was on a plane just to pass the time, because he hates flying (hence, "the lights below, they spell out your name")

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs by The Ataris, it has a special meaning to me my ex-boyfriend wrote the lyrics of this song and sent it to me. I loved the song before too, and loved it even more. But now, when I listen to it, it reminds me of him and how much i miss him.
    The song, holds a great meaning to it though, and can be taken in different ways at when and how you are feeling when listening to it. It holds a memory or a feeling to everyone.

    General CommentI love this song..definitely my favorite Ataris song..only one that comes close to this one for me is "Life Makes No Sense". This means to much to me because this is exactly how I feel about my girlfriend. I talk to her about it and send it to her in e-mails about once every week or so, since she lives so far away. Then when I do get to spend time with her, I always sing it to her. It's just a great love song that has it's own unique sound and style. The Ataris are definitely one of my favorite bands:)
