Lyrics

Maybe Alabama? 
He could never place her accent 
And she would never say. 
Now and then he'd catch her crying 
She’d wipe her tears 
then say nothin’ all day 


She don’t like being alone 
She don’t like being alone 
and so, every waking minute 
had to have something in it 
something to do or something new 
or a loud, radio 
‘cuz she don’t like being alone 
she don’t like being alone

falling rocks on old guitar case

So all that summer 
They went everywhere, did anything 
Lovers could do or dream 
Her rules were pretty simple: 
"Let the past stay in the past" 
And "smile when you want to scream" 

CHORUS 

He saw the ambulance pull away 
and drive off slow 
The cops said: 
“Boy, don’t you go in there 
It’s better you don’t know” 
But he just had to see 
He had to see 

And now 
He don’t like being alone 
He don’t like being alone 
So now, every waking minute 
He's gotta’ have something in it 
something to do or something new 
or a loud radio 
‘cuz he don’t like being alone 

He don’t like being alone 
He don't like being alone 

He just don’t like it.
