I force myself through another day
Can't explain the way today just fell apart like everything
Right in my face
And I try to be the one
I can't accept this all because of you
I've had to walk away
From everything

I'm afraid to be alone
Afraid you'll leave me when I'm gone
I'm afraid to come back home

Another sleepless night again
Hotel room's my only friend
And friends like that just don't add up
To anything
And I try so hard to be everything
That I should never take away from you again
'Cause I heard ya say


I cannot forget
I live with regret
I cannot forget
I live with
I'll live through this
I can't see through this
I can't do this anymore


Afraid you'll leave me when I'm gone
I just wish I was back home

    General CommentThis is the song for those who have ever runaway from home. How you struggle with the decision to be on your own, yet wanting to come back home.

    General CommentThis is an incredable song. This was the first song by Staind that I ever heard. What I hear when I listen to this song is his desperation to find a safe place. It talks about how he is so afraid and overwhelmed by everything that he is afraid to even come back home, in fear that everything around him is still going to attack him. There is no rest. It talks about how alone in the world he feels. Just listen to it.

    General CommentThis song is so amazing to me... It is by far Staind's best song. I agree as to the meaning with Maniac, but I wanted to add that he clearly blames someone.. He does that in a lot of songs that he writes to a "You"... It isn't done a lot and he does it INCREDIBLY effectively.

    General Commentoh yeh, and i can relate to it alot, on a personal level. you just feel...soo...understood when you listen to this song, if youve ever been in that sitchuation. where youve run away, and youre debating if you should come home or not. ive been there. its a hard choice, and kinda comforting to know somebody else has been there too.
