"On My Own" as written by Brian Howes, Tom Mac Donald, Chris Crippin, Dave Rosin and Jacob Hoggard....
Stayed awake all night, toss and turnin'
Now my bloodshot eyes are burnin'
Workin' out why this ain't workin'
Fight after fight after fight
And now it's killin' me.

You were too busy to believe in
All the runaway dreams I was dreamin'
Time to pack up and go, I'm leavin'
Fight after fight after fight
And now I gotta be.

On my own
And livin' in a world alone
Gets better everyday
That I don't have to say I'm sorry I'm coming home
I'm gonna make it on my own
I'll always take the harder road
Get's better everyday
That I don't have to say I'm sorry I'm coming home

How'd you end up oh so jaded?
Cynical and so sedated.
Can't live in this world you created
Day after day after day
And now I gotta be.

On my own
And livin' in a world alone
Gets better everyday
That I don't have to say I'm sorry I'm coming home
I'm gonna make it on my own
I'll always take the harder road
Get's better everyday
That I don't have to say I'm sorry I'm coming home

Yeah, you'll always be the lonely one
Yeah, you'll always try to swallow the sun
Just remember you can never make it rain on anyone

On my own and livin' in a world alone
Gets better every 'cause I don't have to say
And now you're killin me.

On my own
And livin' in a world alone
Gets better everyday
That I don't have to say I'm sorry I'm coming home
I'm gonna make it on my own
I'll always take the harder road
Get's better everyday
That I don't have to say I'm sorry I'm coming home

(I'll make it on my own)
I'm sorry, I won't be comin' home
(I'll make it on my own)
I'm sorry, I won't be comin' home
(I'll make it on my own)
I'm sorry, I won't be comin' home
(I'll make it on my own)
I'm sorry, I won't be comin' home.

    General CommentI first heard this song at 4am after I was venting to a friend about how I was feeling upset over everything going on at the moment. I was going to flip the channel, but something made me give them a chance. The first verse caught my attention right away because I could relate so much. Especially "You were too busy to believe in
    All the run away dreams I was dreamin'" because there's so many things I want to do, but no one realizes it.

    The point to my novel-like comment, this song is amazing, this band is great. I was instantly hooked.

    General CommentI love this song. I love the band. I love Jacob Hoggard. He's a genious putting these words together to make such an awesome song! I'm not sure about the meaning to this song though. This song makes me feel like there's another way to live life and if someone else doesn't like it then they can just leave... I've heard so many other songs by them and I don't know, this one just pops out at me... I love it! There's nothing else for me to say I guess so... Later! Buh byezz! -xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo- 4 Hedley!

    General CommentIf I had to guess, I'd say this song is about wanting to leave the past behind and realizing you're better off on your own, alone.
