"She Don't Want Nobody Near" as written by Matthew Malley, Adam Duritz, David Immergluck, David Bryson, Charles Gillingham, Daniel John Vickrey, Brendan O'brien and Jim Bogios....
She don't want nobody near
But you can't get away from that
They appear and disappear
And they all get a string attached
Pretty soon they got you hanging on a line
Pretty soon they're singing one by one the same old rhyme
They say, "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."

She don't want nobody home
'Cause it's a little too crowded then
But she don't wanna be alone
So they just keep pouring in
Pretty soon they got her headed for the door
She comes home to find that they're not hanging 'round no more
She says "I'm alright, you just can't get home tonight."

Don't you wonder what she looks like in the light?
She says "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."

Pretty whitewashed lies
Endless alibis
And the reasons that need cleaning every night
Half a world away
You can't wash away the stain of the deceiving
And the things that you cannot believe, and well

She don't want no one around
'Cause she don't want anybody to see
What she looks like when she's down
'Cause that's a really sad place to be
Pretty soon she gets them crawling up the walls
Then she wonders why they beg her please to never call
She says, "I'm ok. It's alright. Hey, look who's on TV tonight."
She says, "I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight."

Don't you wonder why it's dark outside at night?
She says, I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight.

    General CommentIt's about being all alone and to want someone in your life. Then you get someone and you're used to that they always leave so you get surprised when somebody decides to stay and suddenly there's a lot of pressure on you 'cause it's hard to make a relationship work. And so you start missing that loneliness of yours and you make up excuses to not be with that person all the time. It's like you're in love or addicted to the loneliness and that's really hard and dangerous too.
