"Alone" as written by and Delphi Newman....
Alone, with too much generosity
A theatre mask of hostility attracts
Assaults occur, infrequently
And those who come, to conquer?
Need strength
But damage accumulates
Still moving him to tears
Retained a sense of humour

    My InterpretationI think the aim of most Colin Newman songs is an ambiguous feeling so it's hard to put an interpretation to words. However I think it's about putting up a tough front but beneath it the humanity is still there to laugh and cry.
