"Together or Alone" as written by and Louis Knox Barlow....
It was never my intention
To blindly feed the boy/girl game
I know romance isn't everything
But I'm obsessing just the same
Because today I don't feel worthy
You seem so beautiful and strong
These unsure hands could never soothe you
Too afraid of doing something wrong
And this confusion wears me down
Until I feel like a nervous stranger
And could I help you grow? I guess we'll never know
Set up for a let-down
These things happen all the time
And I'm not longing to explore it again
I'm too scared of what you'll find
And this confusion wears me down
But I'll smile when I'm with you
'cause there's so much we could do
Together or alone
I'm not afraid of being alone

    General Commentits all about being anxious about some situation, im pretty sure a romantic situation, some one is afraid of fucking it all up, they are unsure of what to do. they dont even know what they are doing together. they are afraid to open up

    General Comment"Together or alone/I'm not afraid of being alone." I think that one line sums up the whole song. It is definitely about fear of opening up yourself completely to another person. I always thought it's a companion piece to "Not a Friend" from earlier on the album.
