"Not Alone" as written by and Sara Bareilles....
It comes a calling in the evening
When the temperature is dropping out
They said it don't get cold here
But I beg to differ now

There is something in the shadows
More than sister silhouette
Something sinister and strange
That I haven't seen yet

And I don't wanna be alone
Sky, don't let the sun go
I'm not ready for the darkness
Swear upon a heartless soul

And I don't want to cry when you go
Stay a little longer, you know
You're making me feel
I'm not alone

You don't have to fight the bad guys
Throwing punches out into the black
If you have to tell me lies, I don't care
Just give me some good back

I don't want to be alone
Sky, don't let the sun go
I'm not ready for the darkness
Swear upon a heartless soul

And I don't want to cry when you go
Stay a little longer, you know
You're making me feel
I'm not alone

And if I only worry 'bout it
Worry 'bout it, worry 'bout it
I just keep breaking down
Breaking down, breaking down

Boy, I could do without
Do without, do without
A night of the bad dreams, sad things
Tell me what that means

I don't want to be alone
Sky, don't let the sun go
I'm not ready for the darkness
Swear upon a heartless soul

And I don't wanna cry when you go
Stay a little longer, you know
You're making me feel
The monsters aren't real
You're making me feel
I'm not alone
I'm not alone, no
I'm not alone, no
I'm not alone
Oh,
Whoa

    General CommentCool song! I think it's about how things that you don't want to think about come at night. As long as it's daytime you are safe and the right person can also help chase off the bad things.

    My InterpretationThis song screams to me. It's almost been a year since I was diagnosed positive for HIV. All this last year I've done everything in God's name to avoid the reality of it. I've gone to the doctor's enough to know that I'm healthy, but thinking of going makes my chest sink everytime. I've been in an on-and-off relationship with a guy who's positive as well, and he's definitely been a crutch for me. I can't imagine how I would handle things without him being there. In the case of the song, he's been my sky. This may be a stretch for some, but this song spoke to me when I heard it and it's been a release for me when I'm feeling alone.

    General CommentThis is somewhat my interpretation of the song. I think she means "I thought you said things would be different, but things are still cold in you. Your still acting sad and lonely, when you have me. You make me feel NOT ALONE. I'm getting tired of wondering what's wrong and you just lying about what's really going on. Don't leave me because i don't understand you. I can't stand to see you like this, it makes me sad. Look at the brighter side of life." wow. that was long.
