You aint alone, so why you lonely?
there you go on the dark end of the street
are you scared to tell somebody how you feel about

somebody? are you scared what somebody's gon think?
or...
are you scared to wear your heart out on your sleeve?
are you scared me?

cause i'm scared the bomb gonna take me away...
oh, but i really don't know what i got to say...
alright!

1-2-3, are you to scared to dance for me?
bite the bullet or tug my sleeve?
or are you scared out on your own two feet?

we really aint that different, you and me.
cause I'm scared the storm gonna take me away..

but i really don't know what i got to say...
hold on....hold on...

cry, if you gonna cry
come on, cry wit me.

you ain't alone,
just let me be your ticket home....

    General CommentOne of their best songs so far, in my opinion. I've seen this group twice now, and let me tell you, they're on to something good...I'm talking new stuff that didn't make it onto Boys and Girls. Trust me, as the Alabama Shakes continue to perfect their sound, they're going to be spitting some hot fire much sooner than later. Brittany seems to be coming into her own on stage, although she is still a tad bit inside of her shell, it seems. Even so, these guys put on a helluva live show. Check them out and track 'em down when they roll into your town.

    General CommentThis song to me speaks on a fear to try for a relationship because your scared to tell someone how you feel about them, and the speaker announces when she says
    'we ain't really that different, you and me."

    General CommentThis song is about a transgender female (genetically male) telling the straight young man who has fallen in love with her that he seems scared to be in love with her. "Are you scared what somebody's gonna think? Are you scared to wear your heart out on your sleeve?"
