"I Don't Want To Be Alone" as written by and Billy Joel....
She said she'd meet me in the bar
At the Plaza hotel
Wear a jacket and a tie
What's the occasion
She just smiled and she wouldn't say why
So here I am standing waiting in the lobby
Sweating bullets in this stupid old suit
And when she sees me, she busts out laughing
You're a sad sight honey but you look so cute, and

(CHORUS):
I don't want to be alone anymore
I was checking you out
I was just making sure
No, I don't want to be alone anymore
And I want you tonight
Although you hurt me before
It didn't matter that I felt like a fool
'Cause I forgot when she walked through the door
I said I'm sorry but she said it was cool
And I don't want to be alone anymore

It's so confusing choosing sides
In the heat of the moment
Just to see if it's real
It's so erotic having you
Tell me how it should feel
But I'm avoiding all the hard cold facts
That I've got to face
So ask me just one question
When this magic night is through
Could it have been just anyone
Or did it have to be you
And will you still be saying

(CHORUS)

But don't you know that it's wrong
It's wrong, it's wrong
But like the song
Being caught by the wink of an eye
I can't be sure we'll get along
But I'm willing to try
As long as you can tell me

(CHORUS)

    General CommentIt's so erotic having you
    Tell me how it should feel

    These lines are without a doubt true.
    The whole of the song is summed in the following lines that immediately followed the previous.

    But I'm avoiding all the hard cold facts
    That I've got to face
    So ask me just one question
    When this magic night is through
    Could it have been just anyone
    Or did it have to be you
    And, will you still be saying-

    Will this person conqueor my loneliness or is this temporary? Do you want to be with me or with anyone (it doesn't matter who)?

    General CommentGreat commentary on a girl going back to the lover who previously scorned her and him wondering if she wants him or just wants not to be alone.
