You born bad, I am the after party
Skeptic threat, you moved to San Francisco
Now, I want it all. You wanted extra money,
I lost it all. I lost it all.
Now I know, it's good to be alone.
It's good to be alone
It's so good to be alone.
My surprise, who thought you had my baseball
I lost sight, and my God came and fixed me,
You know, I had it all, it didn't suit me
I had it all, I had it all
Now I know that I hate to be alone
I hate to be alone
Oh I hate to be alone
It's so good to be alone
Oh I need to be alone
Oh I need to be alone
Oh I need to be alone
Oh I need to be alone
It's so good to be alone
It's so good to be alone

    Song FactKevin Devine, fellow front-man of Bad Books was asked in a Huffington Post interview the story behind this song, to which he replied:

    "That was one of Andy's, and that's one of our pretty big rock songs that get pretty raucous and are a lot of fun to play. It has a really sweet chorus of his that I really like, kind of oscillating between "it's good to be alone" and "I hate to be alone" and "I need to be alone." It's very simple, but I know I feel that way sometimes -- I want to be around people but I don't. I think that all of us kind of need to be alone at some point to figure out why we want to have people in our life and what those relationships are about. I tend to be a bit more verbose than Andy. We both talk a lot, but I tend to write with a lot more words. He's got an economy of language that I really like, and this song is really illustrative of that too."
