"I Want to Be Alone" as written by and Billie Joe/kiffmeyer Armstrong....
I lock myself inside my room
I want to be alone
With you around, you'll only add on
I want to be alone
It's been disturbed by my thoughts
I want to be alone
With you around, you'll only add on
I want to be alone

Please don't think I'm crazy
I don't want you to understand
My mind is growing hazy
To heck with your helping hand
Why don't you just leave me alone?
This conflict is my own
Keep your sources away from me
That's all

I lock myself inside my room
I want to be alone
With you around, you'll only add on
I want to be alone
It's been disturbed by my thoughts
I want to be alone
With you around, you'll only add on
I want to be alone

Please don't think I'm crazy
I don't want you to understand
My mind is growing hazy
To heck with your helping hand
Why don't you just leave me alone?
This conflict is my own
Keep your sources away from me
That's all

I lock myself inside my room
I want to be alone
With you around, you'll only add on
I want to be alone
It's been disturbed by my thoughts
I want to be alone
With you around, you'll only add on
I want to be alone

Please don't think I'm crazy
I don't want you to understand
My mind is growing hazy
To heck with your helping hand
Why don't you just leave me alone?
This conflict is my own
Keep your sources away from me
That's all

    General Commenti luv this song. its great. its a great end song for an album dont you think. it says to me 'thanks, and goodbye' and maybe also 'fuck you', or maybe not. it just has a certain energy about it, thats all i think.

    General CommentThis is really good song. It seems like it is just about someone wanting to be left alone to sort out their problems because they think it's their battle and no one elses

    General CommentThis song is, as the title implies, about wanting to be ALONE, simple as that.
