I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don't believe it makes me real
I'd thought it'd be easy
But no on believes me
I meant all the things that I said

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don't know how it got so bad
Sometimes it's so crazy that nothing can save me
But it's the only thing that I have

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

(On my own!)

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn't worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It's hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

    General CommentI really wish that everyone would stop looking at this song from the view point of a relationship, because to be honest, there is no reference ANYWHERE, not even in the video that it's about that. If it means it like that for you, then fine, but I really doubt it has anything to do with a relationship.

    Personally, I think it has a lot to do with alienation, depression, and like someone else said not being able to fit in. Sometimes trying to explain yourself to someone else means absolutely nothing, your thoughts mean shit and no one believes you. It gets to a point where you feel like you're better off alone, and you feel like you can handle it all because in the end no one gives a shit.
