"Better Alone" as written by Tobias Erik Karlsson and Chad Wolfinbarger....
Don't you hope
We can start again
Endings are old
But they help you see

Can't quite believe
All of this and what it means
You've become so bitter

[Chorus]
You think you're better alone
For the sake of your sanity
It won't resolve
If you just learn to breathe, again
You never had the nerve to begin with
You think you're better alone

Been here before
Seeking safety or something to blame
You feel so hollow
You could swear that you've grown

Where did you think
As big as your dream
You've become so bitter

[Chorus]

Never had the nerve to begin with
Got to come to your senses

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think it's about a break up as well. The narrator wants to get back with the person because they're better off being together, but the other is too stubborn and thinks it's 'better alone'.The person has changed for the worse because they're trying to do everything themseleves, which honestly can't be done.

    Well that's my point of view, anyways.

    General CommentIt should be "It won't hurt a soul" rather than "It won't resolve" in the chorus. Great song though
