Had one of those bad days
He had left me a scar
One of those where the sun don't shine
Like she used to
Had one of those bad dreams
And I woke up in a sweat
And I rolled into nothing
And onto no one

So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how do I save what's over
Tell me how do I live on my own

Woke up in a church
Some guy
Filling me in on life
What a bore if it's all that simple
See I'd marry the search
Wedding bells if the search had a soul
But today
I know that it's not that simple

Had one of those bad days
He had left me a scar
One of those where the sun don't shine
Like she used to
Had one of those bad dreams
And I woke up in a sweat
And I rolled into nothing
And onto no one

So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how do I save what's over
Tell me how do I live on my own

I'll question for you
Did you really believe in me
Or was I
Just a blanket for you to hold on to
See I'm all out of word
Should I call it a night
One of those
Where the moon don't shine like she used to

So lay me down with a ghost
Lay me down with a ghost
So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how do I save what's over
Tell me how do I live on my own
So lay me down with a ghost
'Cause anything's better than alone
And how do I save what's over
Tell me how do I love on my own

When anything's better than alone
Oh, anything's better than alone
Anything's better than alone
Oh, anything's better than alone

    Song MeaningIt's pretty obvious what it's about, really.
    A mistake he can't take back; the loss of a lover he can't get over. He hates being alone, clearly. The part of marrying the search gives it away pretty well, I think.
    Any oppositions?
