"I'd Rather Be Alone" as written by and Pedro Pizarro....
Well I’ll be fine
Just laying here tonight
Thinking about the world
If you don’t mind
Then let me be
So I can feel alive again

For I've been hiding, I’ve been searching for a reason to escape
But I am trying, no I'm lying to myself cause I'm a fake
There's no other way to go
Oh I'd rather be alone
Cause I've been trying, but I'm dying now
So please give me some hope

Tell me what you meant when you said you miss me
Tell me how you felt when you dared to kiss me
Oh Oh Oh, I'd rather be alone

Well dear I mind
Now that you say you're trying
It's only getting worse
So leave my side
I don't need your lies
To write another verse

For I’ve been hiding, I’ve been searching for a reason I should stay
But I am trying, no I'm lying to another the same way
There's no other way to go
Oh I'd rather be alone
Cause I've been trying, but I'm dying now
I'm giving up on hope

With no one right here by my side
I'll live a cold and lonely life
I'd rather be this way then give my love to just anyone

    General Commentheard this song on the stereo bear sampler,
    I like the way it sounds but I haven't really figured it out yet.

    basically...leave me alone?

    Song MeaningI thought he was talking about a clingy whore. At first the "let me be so i can feel alive again" shows the clingy the second verse shows his want to escape and he wants her to give him some hope but then the chorus sounds like she pushed herself upon him and says she misses him, then the next verse he talks about her lying which could be a range of things but cheating was what i thought of and then he tries to talk himself into making it work but ends up giving up on hope. Final line insinuates that she was just some random girl aka "anyone" imo. probably not close but meh!
