There was a time when I was whole
When I had it all together
But that was long ago
And several years later, I still don't know any better
I don't know how to let this go
I've tried to keep myself from breaking
I've tried to keep my heart from aching
But these tears come back and grab me by the throat
I wish that I was better
I've just tried so hard to forget it
It's always here, even when I'm not

I am fine
I'll make it on my own this time
I'm better off alone
'Cause I'm better off
Alone

There was a time when it all made sense
When I was content
But that was years ago
I watched the world crash down around me
I watched my friends go on without me
And leave me stranded and alone
And I've been left with next to nothing
And I've burdened to carry something
Something I don't fully understand
