"Leave Me Alone" is a song performed and written by Norwegian singer–songwriter Alexander Rybak. It was released as a digital download in Norway on 12 October 2012, and charted in Belgium.


When Alexander traved across Europe he meet some fantastic people to share the moment with. Some of his fans become true friends. This song is a story from that life on the road. Talking about the song he said: "I needed a new single for Eastern Europe and as I wrote the song, I grew fond of the melody and the story – so I decided to share it with all of you – in english. It´s a true story of a woman who travelled around half the world to babysit my doorstep, sent me 600 emails and always seems to find my new (secret!) phone number. I have to give her credit for her hard work in finding me wherever I am. I am a lucky man to even experience this, it´s something you normally only see in a movie. I got so inspired, that I had to write a song about it. I wanted the song to be a huge pop-anthem and luckily I got the perfect man for the job; David Eriksen has a heart for popmusic and he creates magic in his studio. So – here we are. I hope you like it. I think I wanna dance"[1]
