"Be Alone" as written by Hayley Williams and Taylor York....
So what if I don't have a lot to talk about?
I shove my mouth and keep it locked until it comes
And what if I don't ever want to leave my house?
Stay on the couch while all my friends are going out

Alone
You should be alone
Yeah, you should be alone
You should be alone with me
We could be alone
Yeah, we could be alone
But never get too low on me

I make the journey down the hall back to my room
But you want time then let it ride inside in silence too
See I ain't want to climb some social ladder too
Some Shanghai-La's that all the cool kids will abuse

Alone
You should be alone
Yeah, you should be alone
You should be alone with me
We could be alone
Yeah, we could be alone
But never get too low on me

We could be alone together

Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh oh
I'm alone, now I'm in love with you alone
Oh oh oh oh oh, Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Come be alone, I'll be in love with you alone

Oh oh oh oh oh

You should be alone
Yeah, you should be alone
You should be alone with me
We could be alone
Yeah, we could be alone
But never get too low on me

You should be alone
Yeah, you should be alone
You should be alone with me
We could be alone
Yeah, we could be alone
But never get too low on me

    Song MeaningIt's about enjoying the state of being "alone" with your own thoughts. Appreciating taking time to yourself and not being insecure about it.

    General CommentBeing alone isn't all that bad. It really allows for you to clear your mind and focus on what matters and it's quite relaxing. I think this song is saying that there is nothing wrong with being alone, and you should always make time for yourself, rather than just trying to always be out and about.

    General CommentI can totally relate to this song, the first few lines just describe my life :)

    So what if I don't have a lot to talk about?
    I shove my mouth and keep it locked until it counts
    And what if I don't ever want to leave my house?
    Stay on the couch while all my friends are going out

    General CommentI think Be Alone represents being away from someone you love and wishing that you were together and never lonely.
