"Been Alone" as written by and Lauren/alspach Christy....
I could have been with someone
I could have been alone
I could have lived without you
But would I have lived at all

I could have been with someone
I could have been alone
I could have lived without you
But would I have lived at all

I'm addicted to all that you do
The demon inside my head is you
You bring me up, bring me down, pull me through
You squeeze my last breath I'm turning blue

Better to die than to live without you
I could have lived tomorrow
I choose to die today
I need each fragment of you

In some masochistic way
I could of walked away from
From everything I've known
I could have been with someone

I could have been alone
I'm addicted to all that you do
The demon inside my head is you
You bring me up, bring me down, pull me through

You squeeze my last breath I'm turning blue
Better to die than to live without you
Time again I find myself at your door
You're the drug I'm sweating and I need more

Lay me down won't you purify my soul
Use me up and swallow me whole.
Better to die than to live without you.

    General CommentI'd actually never even heard of these guys until today. I happened to catch them on the DriveThru Records stage at Warped Tour and I thought they rocked! They're really energetic live, and I was talking to their drummer afterwards and they seem really nice too. I couldn't really understand the lyrics while I was there since there was this screaming hardcore band playing on the stage next to them but these are awesome!
