She Don't Want Nobody Near
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 the 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
She says, I'm alright, I just can't get home tonight
