The new year was cold and I lost a friend
Driving in his car he put a gun up to his head
While others have since been replaced
By my enemies with a familiar face

It felt better when I wasn't alone
It felt better when I wasn't at home
It felt better when I wasn't alone
It felt better when I wasn't at home

This place became a burden
A place I had outgrown
Time and distance made strangers
Out of everyone I know
More desperate than I'd like to admit
More weak than I see fit
More desperate than I would like to admit

It felt better when I wasn't alone
It felt better when I wasn't at home
It felt better when I wasn't alone
It felt better when I wasn't at home

Well I'll bury myself if no one wants to help
I'll bury myself
You lose one friend
You lose all friends
And you lose yourself

It felt better when I wasn't alone
It felt better when I wasn't at home
It felt better when I wasn't alone
It felt better when I wasn't at home

Whoever said you've got to get dead to get ahead
It felt better when I wasn't at home

    I don't know if anyone else thinks this is weird, but I think this is from an episode of Boy Meets World. Where Eric becomes a wiseman named Plays with Squirrels or something.....anyone else notice it?
